Title: [Solved] KDM login prompt is loaded before Orbiter starts
Post by: nite_man on April 21, 2010, 09:10:03 am
Hi,

After last update of 0810 when hybrid core boots Orbiter doesn't start. Instead of that the KDM login prompt is showed on the screen. After success login as linuxmce the Orbiter starts but inside KDE.

Any idea how to solve that?

Thanks in advance.

UPDATED: Solved by removing KDM from startup scripts:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-rc.d -f kdm remove

Thanks nite_man! I was at a loss to why this was happening.

I had the same problem after an apt-get dist-upgrade and the above did not solve it. As a quick solution I moved the kde init file:

sudo mv /etc/init/kdm.conf /root/

not a pretty one but at least lmce showed again ;-)

What is happening is that /etc/X11/default-display-manager is being overwritten by a kdm update.

As opposed to either of the above solutions, do this as root.

Code: [Select]
echo "/bin/false" > /etc/X11/default-display-manager
