Tim, Darrell, One problem with gentdmconf is that arch does not have an /etc/X11/Xsession file. So when gentdeconf creates the Xsession file with an include for /etc/X11/Xsession, the login fails. What needs to be changed is a simple check to make sure the file exists before sourcing it. i.e.: [[ -r /etc/X11/Xsession ]] && . /etc/X11/Xsession -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
