The cheatcode is simply: 3

I have made it easier in the next version with a cheatcode config file: runlevel=3
How do i become super user?

@brokenman
ok booted into 3 as root but no such line. Rebooted now into my changes= cheatcode and entire contents of that root bashrc file are:
# Nice colors in console
PS1='\[\e[0;31m\]\u\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;34m\]\w\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;31m\]\$\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;37m\]'

alias reboot="systemctl reboot"
alias poweroff="systemctl poweroff"
alias shutdown="systemctl poweroff"
alias halt="systemctl halt"

# Nice colors in console list
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias grep='grep --color=auto'

xargs systemctl --user set-environment < /etc/porteus.conf
and this looks like my guest file as well. But is not the same as the skeleton file sitting at /etc/skel

Yeah, the line is removed on the fly when booting into runlevel 3. Sorry. Anyhow, once in 3 try starting lxdm directly. Does it quit?

I am not home ATM but my quote boxwas for booted up into gui whatever the runlevel is so that line appears to be missing no matter what run level....FYI

well I am surprised..running lxdm does not leave to any bork as such....but some minor errors .Before I opened terminal I get this error message....note that I was root and ran lxdm but normally I login as guest

Image
Next I open a terminal and get

Code: Select all

Failed to connect to bus: Permission denied
guest ~ $ whoami
guest

cat /proc/cmdline
quiet root=LABEL=p3 changes=/porteus volume=100% 3
Maybe if some people use a cheatcode of login=root.....they can't login as a sign that they should login as guest?

Giggles

lxdm has to be run as root. From there it manages the login from /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf which has guest as login user. So it looks like the lxdm quit is only in the openrc version. Thanks.

well if lxdm was not working I might have tried as root

Code: Select all

systemctl status lxdm.service
(and if not active)
systemctl start lxdm.service
so maybe http://www.calculate-linux.org/main/en/ ... top-daemon

Code: Select all

start-stop-daemon -S lxdm.service
just peeking at
https://abchk1234.wordpress.com/2014/06 ... aro-linux/
By default, a graphical Display Manager is not enabled; for that one would need to install displaymanager-openrc, configure one’s display manager in /etc/conf.d/xdm, and enable and start the xdm service.
but mention is made about lxdm
lightdm and a lightdm-greeter (like lightdm-gtk-greeter) should be installed to use lightdm as display manager. A guide is available on the forums.

An alternative to lightdm is LXDM. However the version in the repository does not automatically start a ck-session on login; alternative lxdm-consolekit from the AUR can be used.

For more information about consolekit, have a look at the Consolekit section.
ref
https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?titl ... to_systemd

so staying with this last link....when you are in openrc try this

Code: Select all

rc-status
will probably show no lxdm* so then try

Code: Select all

rc-service lxdm restart
assuming you agree that you have some extra config setup to get lxdm working to replace the default login-manager xdm

the "but mention is made about lxdm" has 4 links embedded that don't show as I used a quote box, the main link being
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lxdm-consolekit/

and then using the 'just peeking" link you might like to try

Code: Select all

rc-update add lxdm-consolekit
