Re: [LAU] Autologin to locked desktop was: Re: LightWorks for Linux Demo
Arch Linux with Xfce:
$ cat .xinitrc
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)
if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
[ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
# exec xterm
Remove the display manager and after startup there will appear the user
prompt were you need to run startx to start a xfce session. IIRC that is
how I did it, before I installed lightdm.
Depending to your startup done by init, upstart or systemd, there might
be different ways to run a script automatically that first does startx
and if wanted, then does lock the screen and after that if wanted, will
start the audio applications automatically.
Perhaps such a script can be in
$ ls -hAl /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/
