It is running the latest stable version of Debian. I appreciate your help. I have spent an entire day (or two) looking for solutions online, but these attempts have not been fruitful. – Natalie Adams Oct 25 '09 at 2:06. Now the problem is a lack of storage space. I have a debian server. I have tried examining the messages sent to STDERR, but the messages present there are also found … I've never edited an init script before. exec startxfce4. Why? I think that this may have something to do with the ~/.xinitrc file or xsession, but I'm not sure. Reply or subscribe to this bug. That would be great if you could. if you are using consolekit2. Hi, I am using Manjaro Net-Edition and I just installed Xfce. I've removed everything from my Chromebook's download folder and it says the same thing. xfce4: sudo startxfce4 - all good, but only startxfce4 - fail. xfce4-session: startxfce4 fails to start X on "Cannot open /dev/tty0" Package: xfce4-session; ... Found in version xfce4-session/4.12.1-3. What irritates me, is that I am trying to configure Arch to start X without a login manager like GDM (it is too heavy). As usual, I know enough to screw things up. For properly registering the ConsoleKit session, you probably want to add --with-ck-launch with startxfce4 (new since Xfce 4.10). instead of the whole xfce. exec ck-launch-session startxfce4. I use xorg-xinit and edit my .xinitrc to point to xfce. Okay I've looked into it some more, and I've found some possible solutions that I have yet to try but have worked for others. I want to start xfce, but whenever I type startxfce4 or startx my system grinds to a halt and becomes so unresponsive that I have to reboot it. Want me to post the script edited with comments (echo statements)? This will start Xfce if you login from the first console. Fortunately, there's the 'xiwi' method, which lets you open Linux through a browsing tab or window. The reason it doesn't work is because the method 'xorg' can't get the screen to move over to Linux. But when I type "startx" in tty1 is says "command not found". Running startxfce4 results in a blank screen with a popup saying "Unable to load failsafe session". I am not a CentOS guru, but this is defiantly a good place to start in my opinion. – Mike B Oct 25 '09 at 2:08. Which package do I need to be able to use startx and .bashrc instead of gdm? How to correct this behavior? if [ "$(tty)" = "/dev/tty1" ] ; then startxfce4 fi. You can also use a lighter desktop manager like openbox, jwm, etc. Toggle useless messages. or. Read the section below for more information. I think that need to change permissions, but where? View this report as an mbox folder, status mbox, maintainer mbox. After running # pkg install xfce as root (it installed, i think), I tried "startx" I got "command not found". Solution #1. Thank for your attention to this problem, and thank for your opinions about it.
