Awesome Abarbarian!!!! :thumbup:So how do you like E17? I have not used it in over a year. I wonder if they have good multi-monitor support in Enlightenment?

I know what ya mean.  I enjoy using E17 (using it here in PCLOS) a lot more once I played around with different themes and found some that work well for me.You folks here (and at a few other Linux forums) are starting to get me interested in Arch.

Ok I'll fess up. I do have a little glitch to iron out.   :thumbsup: I can only log in to Slim as root. If I try to log in as ME I get " Failed to execute Log In command"   :w00t: Had a good look around but can not seem to see what the problem is. I checked and it looks like I have created a user ME as I have a ME folder.An ME has a password in /etc/shadow so it looks like ME is valid as a user.Any ideas folks.   :">

Ok, looking over it now. Also, could you post your ~/.xinitrc file? Does the command startx start your environment? I am trying to see if it is a Slim configuration issue or a ~/.xinitrc issue.

If you do not have a ~/.xinitrc file, you can use the skeleton file by:$ cp /etc/skel/.xinitrc ~Looks the same as the wiki examples so I'm a tad confused.I think I have followed the Arch wiki install to the letter. An I have only pacmaned Slim,FF,E17 + E17 extras, as far as I can remember. Any changes I made and tried I went back and undid before trying anything else. A bit long winded but at this stage it is helping me learn. Ta for taking the time to help. :yes:

OK, your ~/.xinitrc is fine. I just tried it via startx and E17 loads. So it has to do with your configuration file.  Off to research more.

I know you followed the wiki to the "t" but they may have missed something as well. I have found numerous posts in the Arch forums and elsewhere but nothing really popped out to me while looking over your config and .xinitrc file.
