==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.

Several extra themes are also available. In [community] repo, there is an Arch specific theme:

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:
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.
