Description

tried mythwelcome and I love the idea. Now, for some reason, I cannot start mythwelcome automatically. I run evilwm, and when I try to start an xterm with ctrl-enter after the mythwelcome program has started, I get nothing. Loggin in from a remote host via ssh confirms that the program mythwelcome is running. How are you all starting this thing? My .xinitrc/.xsession contains the following:


# Merge X resources from ~/.Xdefaults [ -f $HOME/.Xdefaults ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xdefaults

# Set the background and root cursor shape xsetroot -solid \#400040 xsetroot -cursor_name top_left_arrow

# Start evilwm - snap to borders within 10 pixels /usr/bin/evilwm -snap 6 -bw 0 & #/usr/bin/evilwm &

/usr/bin/xsetroot -solid black /usr/X11R6/bin/xset s noblank & /usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off & /usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms &

#do some decoding /usr/bin/dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video16 bs=65k count=50

#[ -e /home/mythtv/.mythguilock ]
mythfrontend &

/usr/bin/mythwelcome &

irexec &

xhost +

# Transfer control to xclock - killing xclock (with

Ctrl+Alt+Escape, say)

# will exit our session

exec xclock -digital -padding 2 -g -0+0


After some testing, I found that starting mythwelcome with -v all or -v database, or anythong that provides some output causes the program to display properly. -v none or no -v at all causes it to freeze the screen.

So, The following things work:

  • "/usr/bin/mythwelcome -v all" typed on an xterm in X
  • "/usr/bin/mythwelcome -v database" typed on an xterm in X

probaby, other verbose levels work ok too, but I have not tried them all...

The following things do NOT work:

  • "/usr/bin/mythwelcome" typed on an xterm in X
  • "/usr/bin/mythwelcome -v none" typed on an xterm in X
  • "/usr/bin/mythwelcome -v all &" included in my .xsessionrc
  • "/usr/bin/xterm - e '/usr/bin/mythwelcome -v all ' &" included in my

.xsessionrc

These all freeses the screen and gives me no access to X what so ever, except I may kill it with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE.

The log file produced from the last command, captured using the 2>&1 facility of bash,

Output of -v database:
