One reason I selected sparky was to follow the progress of systemd.  aptitude show systemd yields that 204-6 is not installed.



1.  Is systemd enabled by default?



2.  I have the lxde 32 bit version.  initial messages state that lightdm is not started.   This is just after the mta messages.  logging in via cli and sudo startx gets lxde up.  However all terminals that I then start are root terminals

1. It's not

2. Create the file: /home/you/.dmrc and place the code:

Code:

[Desktop]
Session=lightdm-xsession

.Xauthority was owned by root.  I did the editing of ~/.dmrc (it was already there) and then from ~/



sudo chown you:you .X*



and I can do startx (with no sudo) and my terminals are not /root based.  Good enough for now       Lightdm still not running automagically, just before the Alt-F1 terminal a note says that lightdm is disabled in the kernel (3.12) via "text"  Will sleuth more in /var/log/



thanks

Check file: /etc/default/grub and remove 'text" (if eny) from the line"

Code:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"


Then:

Code:

update-grub


Check file: /etc/init/lightdm.override - remove it if exist.

Check file: /etc/X11/default-display-manager - there should be text inside:

Code:

/usr/sbin/lightdm


Check /var/lib/lightdm/ - it should be owned to lightdm:

Code:

chown lightdm.lightdm lightdm/


including /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority

Thanks.  Commented out while appending  the  date done

Code:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"


then

Code:

sudo update grub




everything else correct including ownership of lightdm and now I can choose razorqt or lxde from lightdm

Talking back to systemd - I have started some tests with systemd already.

Went at systemd stand alone two ways.  Able to compile -208 32 bit on amd-c50 and on an atom, quite the slog, lots of dependencies.  On one I went with apt-get in testing with -206 and it worked for awhile until I cut the cord of sysv.  On the other box with -208 I gave up on the rescue shell.  I had blazed to far with the apt-get remove sysv.



It does have some really nice logging features, For individuals newer to linux who wish to grow steadily, it is a slam dunk that knowing your way around systemd will help in many ways down the road.



I am more involved with the bug-testing at Distributed Proofreaders Canada and also trying out preliminary text manipulation tools for the crafting of .epubs, etc. via slightly marked up text.  DPC differs from Gutenberg in that it is UTF-8 and has the newer books.



My time for systemd is limited, but I am game to try.
