I've recently tried to install Mir desktop on my ubuntu 13.04
I changed the
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to the following:
[SeatDefaults] type=mir #user-session=ubuntu #greeter-session=unity-greeter
then I stop my lightdm and start it again. It does not open anything in tty7. just a blank black screen. I then tired startx instead of service lightdm start .. the gui started but with no launchers or menu or whatever. just the background.
My guessing is that commenting out the
greeter-session line in
lightdm.conf prevents lightdm from launching the start screen. so I changed the file to that:
[SeatDefaults] type=mir #user-session=ubuntu greeter-session=mir-greeter
but it still does not fix it and I'm still stuck with startx.
does anyone know how to change that ??
