ConsoleKit and WM/DE integration
« on: August 03, 2012, 04:22:03 AM »
Here is a sample script to start a window manager or a desktop session with ConsoleKit

start-flwm:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
#
# Start Desktop Session with ConsoleKit
#

STARTUP="flwm_topside"
CK_LAUNCH_SESSION=/usr/local/bin/ck-launch-session

if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ]; then
     STARTUP="dbus-launch --exit-with-session $STARTUP"
fi

if [ -x "$CK_LAUNCH_SESSION" -a -z "$XDG_SESSION_COOKIE" ]; then
     STARTUP="$CK_LAUNCH_SESSION $STARTUP"
fi

exec $STARTUP

copy it to somewhere in PATH
Code: [Select]
install -Dm755 start-flwm ~/.local/bin/start-flwm
adjust sysconfig/desktop
Code: [Select]
echo start-flwm > /etc/sysconfig/desktop
and backup
Code: [Select]
echo etc/sysconfig/desktop >> /opt/.filetool.lst
add ConsoleKit.tcz to onboot.lst

after you login check:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ sudo ck-history --last
tc                    Session1   Seat1   tty2         :0.0                         Fri Aug  3 14:13   still logged in   

Log begins Fri Aug  3 14:13:09 2012

No and won't on my watch ;) I'm sure the others feel that way too.

it is required by polkit to grant priviliges to run some applications like nm-applet

Agree, it is not needed in base.

After reading:
Quote
Furthermore, ConsoleKit will run ~60 threads in the background, where most of them are never used. If you mind using an unmaintained application using so much threads and you only want a convenient way to mount disks as user, have a look at udev, udiskie and polkit. Otherwise you might consider switching to systemd.
that would never occur to me...

heh. that clear message makes me happy. But what if someday udev depends on d-bus, d-bus on systemd and systemd on policykit? will you guys stop using udev?
I sadly have to admit that I'm half-serious...

We'd use the last version of udev that doesn't need those, and if/when that becomes unsensible, look for alternatives.

The current situation is a bit similar, because the udev-to-systemd integration is not yet complete, so if I were to update udev right now, I'd have to use a tarball release from before the systemd integration.

It's looking a bit bad on that front, with both Lennart and Kay only caring about the systemd-integrated udev. There are some external contributors working on making the build-separate-udev-from-the-combined tree work as well as it did before, but I believe right now building only udev from the systemd tree wouldn't work fully.
