Sabayon 17.04. with KDE5, two problems. [Solved]

Post by albfneto » Sat Apr 29, 2017 2:21

In my new installation of Sabayon 17.04, with KDE... Two simple problems.

when Sabayon starts, instead of SDDM starts (the SDDM screen), i only see a Pure Bash, with Login:
when i try the command:

Code: Select all

$ ssdm
I receive a message that my user not have authority to run sddm

then, if i execute as root:

Code: Select all

# sddm
My sddm screen opens, for "normal" login as user!

Other problem:

after the KDE environ. starts, i recieve a message that the program "Avant-Window-Navigator" is not installed...

But i see that there is no more "AWN" for Sabayon or Gentoo. I have in mind that "Avant-Window-Navigator" is deprecated, discontinued, no more exists...
Where is the file for the "removal" of the AWN entry?

[Che Cos'è Il Calcolo Distribuito (BOINC)

Hi, Sabayonino! Ciao!

When i execute:

Code: Select all

$ groups sddm
reply:
groups sddm
video sddm

SDDM IS in the video group...

today i seen an interesting info, when i execute:

Code: Select all

# systemctl status sddm.service

to see the info off SDDM in systemd, of if i try to "enable" or "start" the SDDM service, i received a reply that sddm.service cannot be started, since the system have two services allocated for the same BUS name...

Code: Select all

# sudo systemctl status sddm.service

Loaded: error (Reason: File exists)

as root just try

Code: Select all

# systemctl enable sddm.service -f
"-f" option means
-f --force When enabling unit files, override existing symlinks
When shutting down, execute action immediately
