X-App on startup blocks terminal ?
« on: January 04, 2018, 04:14:00 AM »
Hey!
I just started using tinycore for a automotive project with Qt and got some small program working on the starup by creating a startup script in the .X.d folder.
The problem is, that I cant operate anymore, also when I press Ctrl + Alt + F1 (shows kind of a terminal, but doesn't jump in the 'command mode', where I can enter commands)

Before I added the script to the startup I was able to jump into the terminal by pressing this shortcut and pressing enter afterwards.

Can you help me with this one?
Thanks in advance

You don't mention whether you're using Xvesa, Xfbdev or Xorg-7.7, which is it?

After <ctrl - alt - f1> enter "sudo killall Xvesa" (or Xfbdev/Xorg).

Then remove your script from ~/X.d and "startx".

What are the contents of your script?

Hi StanTheMan
Your script needs to be launched in the background. Place your script in  ~/.local/bin. Then place a file in ~/.X.d that launches
your script like this:
Code: [Select]
YourScriptName &
