Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003696
lxdm relogin fail
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:02:02 EST
Description of problem:
I use Fedora 19 LXDE spin with awesome installed and if I log out of my LXDE session and try to log in to awesome with the same account it usually fails logging in. It doesn't show any alert just shows the default LXDE background and not reacts to anything. It does the same vice versa. Sometimes it kills my input possibilities on selecting display manager or account. I can move the mouse but no clicks and keypresses seem to be effective.
These times I have to use Ctrl+Alt+F2 and restart LXDM manually.
None of these happens on system startup. Only under a relogin process. It might do the same on changing accounts not DEs only.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install awesome on Fedora 19 LXDE spin
2.on system startup login with LXDE
3.log out and relogin with awesome
It does the same with step 2 and 3 inverted.
1. Loosing input possibilities on changing account or display manager. Or
2. After entering these the login process stops and only the default LXDE (not my own or awesome dafault) wallpaper is visible.
No peripherial failure. Succesfull login.
I have only one account on this OS.
Runs apache and mysql servers. Apache runs sites in the /home folder which is on a separate encripted partition.
I use a 2-monitor system.
When you log out, is your session actually ended or is awesome still running? Do you still see awesome in the list of running processes or your session in ck-list-sessions?
How is awesome run? From a shell script or does it have a session manager? How does it quit a session?
Actually by now I don't use Fedora, but I started the session from LXDM and logged out via the right click->exit method.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
