Hi All, Is my first time installing Funtoo, am just an hobbyist not an expert, am happy that I have been able to install it at first attempt but am experiencing a couple of problems already. The main one prevents me to move on: I reached the point of installing SDDM (I love KDE and choosen it. Nvidia drivers installed too): reboot and it does'nt accept password. I have been installing Lightdm too and I get the same problem. Plus, after clicking for password, the login page comes out not in correct position, leaving a black strip on the left side of the screen (image hereby attached), it goes in the right position clicking again. I don't know the reason, maybe useful to know that during Funtoo's installation process I discovered that I have been messing up with file/folders permissions over an other distro making it unusable and I have been erasing and installing it again (Grub is there, I did'nt install it with Funtoo). Details are: 1 - Linux-Mint /dev/sdb2 (Grub here) 2 - Funtoo /dev/sdb3 3 - Calculate Linux /dev/sdb4 (/dev/sda = Windows 10. Both disks UEFI) (/dev/sda2 = boot efi partition) Well, that is the main issue, I know is correct to put only one question for each discussion, but ask permission to add another couple of problems, as because am sure solution for them is very simple (I found the solution already in the forum for the first one but I am unable to understand the process suggested there), as because maybe they are related with the login issue.Problems are: 1 - during installation, terminal telling me: Message for package media-sound/pulseaudio-11.1: - A preallocated buffer-size of 2048 (kb) or higher is recommended for the hd-audio driver! CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=54 2 - Another message telling me that is unable to fetch media-libs/schroedinger-1.0.11-r1 I don't know which details useful for you I can add. Please, if needing let me know. Thank you for reading. Ciao (Yes, I am Italian) :)
I have a new laptop, and I'm trying to get an ansible setup to configure it, testing out that setup on virtualbox. On my current laptop, I use xfce4 and sddm, so I figured I would use the same on the new one. I've had the old laptop for over four years, and I have no idea what I did when installing any of the things on it, so whenever something doesn't work on the new setup, it's a treasure hunt trying to figure out why it works on the old one. My latest problem has me stumped though, probably because I don't really understand how this stuff is supposed to work. If I log in on the console, and run startxfce4, it works. If I log in using sddm, I get kicked out immediately. From what I can gather, it seems to be related to the session, but I can't figure out what is wrong. I have compared /etc/sddm.conf and /etc/pam.d/* on the old and new, and can't find any relevant differences. I thought for a while the problem was related to consolekit being enabled or not, but I think that is now set up identically on both machines, and I'm also not entirely sure it's supposed to even be involved at all? This is the only trace of an error I can find in any logs, but it's not all that helpful # cat /home/mortenlj/.local/share/sddm/xorg-session.log (xfce4-session:3029): Gtk-ERROR **: failed to add UI: The resource at '/org/xfce/libxfce4ui/libxfce4ui-dialog-ui.ui' does not exist /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc: line 114: 3029 Trace/breakpoint trap xfce4-session I have a couple questions: Should I use consolekit or not, it's not entirely clear? (lots of stuff on the internet says no, but it seems it's because they use systemd, which I don't) Is there a way to get some more useful error messages from sddm/xfce4-session?
I'm installing a new machine, testing out ansible on a virtualbox before trying to apply the same setup to a real computer. The process has already spawned one thread (https://forums.funtoo.org/topic/1368-cant-get-a-session-when-using-sddm-and-xfce4-on-new-installation/), but I have another problem that I don't think is related to the problem in that thread. When sddm first starts, I get the user selector, and clock and other things, but no power controls. This means it's impossible to restart or shutdown from the sddm screen, which is somewhat annoying. Strangely enough, if I log in on the console, and run `eselect rc restart xdm`, sddm is restarted, and now suddenly I have power controls in the upper right corner. What gives?
Hi, I'd like to rotate the screen by 90? in a Funtoo based system on KDE Plasma 5. Unfortunately I can't do that by the KDE System Settings -> Display and Monitor: Orientation (doesn't work). I tried to add an xorg conf file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-monitor.conf according to this but has no effect. I don't know whether I should change /etc/sddm.conf or what is the solution. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks
