lightdm keyboard issues
« on: August 28, 2013, 01:53:25 PM »
Ever since there was a lightdm update a while back, I have been having issues with the keyboard (HP laptop) - I can enter the user name, but when changing fields to enter the password, there is no input from the keyboard. There seems to be some issues with the drop down menus - change wm's etc ... so maybe some issues with the cordless mouse.

Anyone else having these issues?

Finally got fed up with it and switched to a run level that does not start lightdm. Currently using:

Code: [Select]
xinit <window manager of choise>
to log in to X. Good news is that memory use has dropped from around 150MB idling to 110MB idling - so maybe a memory issue with lightdm as well.

^ Interesting...

What version of lightdm are you using?  I am on 1.6.0-3 and am not seeing this...

I will test on some other machines to see if I can reproduce it

Thanks

version 1.6.0-3

on a side note, I may have made my official conversion to spacefm - I know you're a big fan, but I always stayed with thunar. The built-in auto mounting of drives in spacefm is awesome though. Simplifies the .xinitrc.

^ Good to hear... I never was a fan of Thunar and never understood why it was so popular
