Systemd method

We need to add a session under == Enabling Lightdm == for systemd. It would be like this:


[b]systemd method[/b]

LightDM comes packaged with a systemd service file. Simply run the following command.

systemctl enable lighdm.service

The next time you reboot, the display manager should run.


Can anyone confirm this to add to the wiki?

I see your systemd info on four pages. Thanks for the effort. I will answer it here.
While your text above is quite good, for now. But if those text exist for every service, it will be a huge duplication. When something changed, which is quite possible considering the early stage of systemd, you have to rework and change all of the again.
Right now there is already a discussion on how to clean up daemon/service start up info on lots of pages. The conclusion is:
  1. Add service start up instruction into Daemon
  2. Create a start service page that simply redirects to Daemon
  3. Use something like "For systemd, start service lighdm.service."
You can start above work if you agree. If you have any idea, we can disscuss it here.

Instead of cp-ing would it be more appropriate to symlink?

# find /usr/share/archlinux/icons -name "*64*" -exec ln -s {} /usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/devices \;
