In TTY can you run get lightdm running with lightdm command and service lightdm start command?

What is in your /etc/xorg.conf file?

What is your Graphic card?

Haven't tried the lightdm command or service lightdm start command in tty yet. Do know that it's installed when looking at the station software last night though after getting into userland. What is the lightdm command for bsd? I've noticed that biggest part of doing things in the cli/tty are different from the Linux OS's which the mainstreams seem to have different commands of their own for doing cli work.

I have nVidia but didn't set that one up. I prefer using the opensource graphics usually on Linux. It could also be using the Intel since I believe the laptop shows both.

I've not check the /etc/xorg.config file due to not thinking about it since I have Mate installed. But will check there later this afternoon when I get back from 'Date day' with the wife. That's something we do every Saturday and have been for 46 years now. ;)

Still scratching head as to why I keep getting the original message after having done the # service ntpdate restart. And you should see all those Couldn't find DHCP errors that comes when booting after having done the SYNCDHCP bit. Looks like a ton of them. :)

@ericbsd

Couldn't get run lightdm. Tried the service lightdm start and got the following:

Code: Select all


root@son-of-venus:~ # service lightdm start
 * WARNING: lightdm has already been started
root@son-of-venus:~ # 



Still hitting tty when booting up.

Here is a copy of what I have in the xorg.config file. I put it in the code blocks so it might be easier to read. Hope that it helps.

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install nvidia-driver nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig
replace `Driver "nv"` by `Driver "nvidia"` or run `nvidia-xconfig` it looks like you are running on optimus laptop.

if you can disable intel in your BIOS you should do it.

I'll try to get bios to disable the Intel graphics but if unable the would the nVidia override it?
I'm used to using the mesa and nouveau in Linux whenever I had it installed on the laptop.

I think I would up trying bumblebee when using MX on it and didn't like it. Removed and went to mesa nouveau instead on MX. Now I only have Ghostbsd installed on it.

Thanks for putting up with me and helping me out ericbsd.
