Description Andy Clark 2012-11-30 07:18:54 UTC
Description of problem:
I am using a lxdm and openbox, and after last update, lxdm 
can't open openbox session.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[avedischev@orion ~]$ rpm -qa | egrep "(xorg-x11-server|systemd)" | sort
[avedischev@orion ~]$ cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 19 (Rawhide)
[avedischev@orion ~]$ uname -a
Linux orion.aviales.local 3.7.0-0.rc7.git1.1.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 27 14:13:42 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[avedischev@orion ~]$

How reproducible:
you should have latest lxdm
[avedischev@orion ~]$ yum info lxdm
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, remove-with-leaves
Available Packages
Name        : lxdm
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 0.4.1
Release     : 4.fc19
Size        : 130 k

Summary     : Lightweight X11 Display Manager
URL         : http://lxde.org
License     : GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+
Description : LXDM is the future display manager of LXDE, the Lightweight X11 Desktop
            : environment. It is designed as a lightweight alternative to replace GDM or
            : KDM in LXDE distros. It's still in very early stage of development.

[avedischev@orion ~]$

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. shutdown -r now
3. try to login your system 
Actual results:
After you enter your password, lxdm prompt window has disappeared, 
and openbox session cannot be opened

Expected results:
Openbox is running

Additional info:
workaround is next - remove lxdm from your system and install latest lightdm
(lightdm-1.4.0-3.fc19.x86_64 in my case)

Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2013-02-17 22:49:58 UTC
I cannot reproduce your problem. Are you sure the openbox session is selected? Is it started when you boot into runlevel 3 and run startx?

What sessions do you have in /usr/share/xsessions? Did you configure "openbox-session" in /etc/sysconfid/desktop?

Comment 2 Andy Clark 2013-02-18 02:25:39 UTC
I am sorry, Christoph, but now i can not provide
additional information, because bug was appeared
in my workstation at previous job.
