It is probably related to fish.i have the same problem on my laptop and I did not debug it yet.

How did you take a screenshot of your login screen?

ASX is right. However for a special kind of debugging there's actually a better way: Xephyr. I've mentioned it in one of the first posts; it's a nested version of the X11 server which can come in quite handy. Basically you fire it up, giving it the screen size as a parameter. Then a blank window of say 1024x768 will pop up running an actual second X server that you can load applications on! This is perfect for testing things like a DM UI (and it's a nice thing to play with if you're interested in that kind of stuff).

In case you're interested, I've referenced this in a previous post. It discusses DM creation and also details basic Xephyr usage. Good stuff!

I tried fixing the network icon last night but didn't get anywhere.

Something I noticed but it's probably not related is when I change the configuration in lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf is my mouse theme changes. I can easily set it back through settings.

Again I don't know if this is related but ifconfig no longer works.

If I run ifconfig I get fish: Unknown command 'ifconfig'

If I run networkmgr I get :

/bin/sh: sysctl: not found

I disabled lightdm and logged in by tty and the command startxfce4 and ifconfig command works again. Also the network icon is blue again

i deleted slim while debugging yesterday to see if this would fix the problem. I re-installed SLiM and it doesn't work anymore. The login screen comes up and I enter name and password but it doesn't go to the desktop.

It just returns to login screen.

I enabled lightdm again and I can login OK.

Disregard what I said about SLiM not working. It works fine after reinstalling.

While debugging I edited my .xinitrc. :)

I changed it back and I can login with SLiM fine.

Under SLiM the network icon is fine and the command "ifconfig" are both fine.
