zh-CN:Console TDM

Console TDM is an extension for xorg-xinit written in pure bash. It is inspired by CDM, which aimed to be a replacement of display managers such as GDM.

Installation

Install the console-tdmAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] package.

Now ensure no other display managers get started by disabling their systemd services.

After installing Console TDM, you should modify your ~/.bash_profile, and add a line

source /usr/bin/tdm

If you use zsh, add to your ~/.zprofile the following line

bash /usr/bin/tdm

or

tdm

and edit your ~/.xinitrc, replace your exec lines with

exec tdm --xstart

Configuration

You should copy the links to your WM/DE starter to ~/.tdm/sessions, and links to non-X programs to ~/.tdm/extra. For convenience, you can just run tdmctl init.

The use of the program tdmctl is much like systemctl, and it's a powerful tool to configure Console TDM.

You can customize Console TDM by editing ~/.tdm/tdminit.
