I was trying to setup entranced on Arch. I followed the enlightenment.org
wiki, but the arch setup for Xsession, etc. left me a little unsure on exactly
where some of the entrance_edit path info should point.
The Arch default for entrance_config.cfg is:
Entrance Daemon Settings
attempts = 5
xserver = "/usr/bin/X -quiet -br -nolisten tcp vt7"
Entrance Client Settings
xsession = "/etc/X11/Xsession"
auth = 1
engine = 0
reboot = 1
halt = 1
theme = "default.edj"
background = ""
pointer = "/usr/share/entrance/images/pointer.png"
greeting-before = "Welcome to"
greeting-after = ""
date-format = "%A %B %e, %Y"
time-format = "%l:%M:%S %p"
autologin-mode = 0
autologin-user = ""
presel-mode = 1
presel-prevuser = ""
user-remember = 1
user-remember-count = 5
user-count = 0
session-count = 2
default-session = "default"
default-session-title = "Default"
default-session-icon = "default.png"
The 'xsession' line can't be right because Arch doesn't have
"/etc/X11/Xsession". So I'm thinking that is the problem. The box is booting
to runlevel 3 and all xdm/kdm startup in /etc/inittab are commented out. (the
wiki said to disable all xdm and kdm) I have the daemons in rc.conf set to: ..
alsa entranced famd) and entrance starts and display the default winter theme.
All my desktops were listed (e16, e17, icewm, kde, lxde, openbox). The
username entry works and I can type my name in there, but the password line is
grayed out and will accept no input. The little 'lock' icon and the '>'
(right-arrow) below the password line are grayed out as well.
When things wouldn't work, I just used ctrl+alt+f1 and /etc/rc.d/entranced
stop to kill it and then just used kdm.
