Evilwm not start.

Hello I like wm and this time I want to try evilwm.
I installed from pacman:

pacman -S evilwm

But in trying to start it I get error.
I use slim for the sessions, attempts to start evilwm I get "failed to execute login command".

Mi .xinitrc:

setxkbmap es &
nitrogen --restore &
xmobar &
xbindkeys &

evilwm -fg silver -term urxvt

I also tried with

 exec evilwm -fg silver -term urxvt

but the problem is the same.

Re: Evilwm not start.

I don't use slim, so i can't help with that, but with that .xinitrc you should be able to use 'startx' from a tty to start evilwm. You can use Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to tty2, login, and use

startx -- :1

... it should work.

Re: Evilwm not start.

The problem is the same, edit the inittab to boot to console and I keep getting Login Failed To Execute Commands.

Re: Evilwm not start.

What about this from tty...

xinit /usr/bin/evilwm -- :1

I also recommend you to check this, this and this.

Re: Evilwm not start.

There is no passing, no start. Even I get login failed to execute commands.

Also try booting from console with startx and the problem is the same. hmm:/

Re: Evilwm not start.

1. Get rid of 'slim'
sudo dpkg -P slim

2.As ROOT edit /etc/inittab and leave this section like this:

# The default runlevel.
id:2:initdefault:

Make sure that is the default runlevel in Arch, it could be '3'.

3.As USER edit your .xinitrc and leave it looking like this:

#!/bin/sh

setxkbmap es &
nitrogen --restore &
xmobar &
xbindkeys &

exec evilwm 

Enter in another line what your terminal you want it to look like followed by the ampersand (&)

4. Reboot

5. Login (user name and user password)
6. $ startx (Enter)
