Common, startx is deprecated since a decade perhaps. Has it uses, yes, but
running a desktop and modern apps is not one of them.

AFAIK, without startx I couldn't even do multiple Xorg instances using preset
exported user-specific XORGCONFIG configuration at session outset.

Yes, possibly.

However, I can start a second session (different user) from XFCE menu
just fine. I have not tried three in years.


But AFAIK startx does not support policykit and that is a problem. There
are daemons that are not started, things that fail.

don says he gets this error:

Unable to grab media player keys:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.Dbus.Error.ServiceUnKnown: The name
org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

rhythmbox is a gnome app, and gnome relies on having a proper display
manager doing certain jobs, and startx certainly doesn't do them out of
the box.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have looked at man pages for .xinitrc, xinit, startx and more. None of these suggest that they are depreciated. fvwm2 is listed in Yast2 with no suggestion that it has been depreciated, or is not operational. I read the Change Log and did not see anything that indicated fvwm2 was depreciated or that it would/should not work. So what should my path be? If fvwm2 is a maintained package, shouldn't it be so and is a bug report appropriate?

I will try to implement some of the suggestions proposed, and thanks, but do not understand the suggestion that it just doesn't work, so do something else:-(

Please explain where I may have missed something stating that fvwm2 is not to be used. I am sort of an old timer, and just like the look and feel of Mwm. Hence my desire for the similar interface presented by fvwm2.

Don
