==What is qingy?==
 
 
 
[http://qingy.sourceforge.net/ Qingy] is a replacement for getty, using [http://www.directfb.org DirectFB] to provide a fast, nice GUI without the overhead of the X Window System. It allows users to log in and start the session of their choice (text console, gnome, kde, wmaker, etc.). Running several X sessions is also possible.
 
 
 
==How to get qingy?==
 
 
 
A package is available in the [community] repo. To install:
 
# pacman -S qingy
 
 
 
Several extra themes are also available. In [community] repo, there is an Arch specific theme:
 
# pacman -S qingy-theme-arch
 
 
 
A package of several various themes is available in AUR:
 
 
 
*[http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?do_Details=1&ID=5501 qingy-themes]
 
 
 
==How to setup qingy?==

Qingy's author suggest to keep agetty on a console (here on console 6) as a safety measure as qingy is still beta software.
 
 
 
==Having problems with your Synaptics touchpad?==
 
Qingy (and quite possibly other DirectFB applicationss) has some issues using Synaptics touchpad. This can be solved by adding:
 
disable-module=linux_input
 
to /etc/directfbrc. If the file does not exist, create it. This will enable you to use your touchpad, however some extra functionality like tapping or tap-dragging might not work.
