|Starting X automatically at login to a virtual terminal.|
|Automatic login to virtual console|
To manually start X,
xinit are used. Both will execute
~/.xinitrc, which may be customized to start the window manager of choice as described in the xinitrc article.
An alternative to a login manager is to add the following to the bottom of your
~/.bash_profile does not yet exist, copy a skeleton version from
/etc/skel/.bash_profile. If you use zsh as your preferred shell, add the following lines to your
(( $(fgconsole 2>/dev/null) == 1 )) && exec startx -- vt$vt &> ~/.xlog
The user will be logged out when X is killed. In order to avoid this, remove the
exec part from the script.
