I've edited /etc/default/grub so that my computer boots directly to the console (instead of using the MDM display manager). I then run the xinit command to run the window manager of my choice.
I like to use nm-applet to connect to my wifi. I have no problems with connecting to wifi when I start a desktop environment using MDM, but I can't connect when I start the window manager using xinit.
What is the MDM display manager doing/running to allow wifi connections that I'm not doing when I run my window manager from xinit?
Here's my xinitrc file:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh session=$1 if [ $session = "i3" ] then exec i3 fi if [ $session = "openbox" ] then exec openbox fi if [ $session = "xfce" ] then exec xfce4-session fi
