Re: can't change window manager with lightdm

OK, I figured it out.

The issue was /usr/bin/x-session-manager, which was linked to /usr/bin/startlxde-pi.

I'm not sure why this file overrides lightdm.conf, or where this file is set to execute, or why, but I replaced it with a file that has exec dwm in it, and now I have dwm.

can't change window manager with lightdm

Hello- I'm trying to change the window manager to dwm using lightdm . I have dwm installed and tested it manually. I created dwm.dwsktop in /usr/share/xsessions . I changed the user-session setting in lightdm.conf . But lightdm just keeps starting lxde. It seems hardcoded, or I don't know where to c...

Re: much needed revisions

It is apparently being worked on: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=12097 The copying issue and heat are caused by a design fault on the PCB: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=14489 We are waiting for a fix, but nothing yet.. Hi Badger- Thanks for t...

Re: much needed revisions

And as an aside, there will be not overheating issues, the chips do not need a heatsink or similar. I know it should not be overheating, but mine does. It overheats, and then the ethernet stalls, or stops working altogether. So I did an experiment. I installed heatsinks on both the SOC and memory c...

Re: much needed revisions

Still repeating keys are sure sign that they do not get that 4.4 Volt. One reason may be that the PI itself doesn't get the full power it needs. You could measure the power between testpoints 1 and 2 (TP1 & TP2) and you should see something more than 4.8 Volt here, if its any less than that then th...

much needed revisions

Hi- As a professor teaching college level computer animation, I was really excited about getting a RPi. With scratch, maybe processing, it would be a great teaching tool. However since I got it, I just keep running into problems. I tried about a dozen keyboards, none of the ones I had at the school ...
