I’m a relativly new EOS (and a little less new linux) user and have been lurking this forums for quiet some time now.
First some background:
Before EOS I tryed different distros, like Ubuntu, Manjaro, etc. mainly with XFCE as my DE.
I like the idea of tiling WMs but I’m a little nervous about jumping the tiling WM-train completely. Because I’m familiar with XFCE, I installed EOS with XFCE and i3WM together, so I can switch to XFCE in case I run into some issues where I need a GUI.
So everything went fine and I used EOS with i3WM and a little trip to XFCE now and then for arround 4 months without any bigger problems.
Now my problem:
I use the login-screen that comes with XFCE (I guess?) for logging in and switching my “active” DE/WM.
Today I wanted to login to a i3WM-session and all it does is turning my screen black for half a secound and bringing me back to the login-screen. Logging into XFCE works without a problem though.
Duck-duck-going and even googling didn’t bring me any results, so I wanted to ask if maybe here someone is familiar with this issue and might provide / direct me to a solution.
Many thanks in advance!
I hope I chose the right category for my question
