Re: [OPEN] AcroLinuxB xfce install I get "Input Not Supported" on my monitor

Checking most "/var/log" files revealed nothing much, but searching for Xorg config files I came across "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace", which kills the current Xorg. Whenever "Input Not Supported" floats by, "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace" kills current Xorg and then I get a login every time.

Something with Xorg, but what? Its not just Arco, but any and every Arch. Every debian never fails. I need to find how Xorg first comes online.

I created a "xorg.conf" file, but that didn't help:

Code: Select all

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "X.org Configured"

Solution 1: Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, received login prompt

I left it at that solution, until I found out another Arch (I was trying them all) didn't respond to the above.

Solution 2: Remove Lightdm or anyother Display Manager and use autologin, using getty login:

Oddly enough Solution 1 works with ArcoLinux, but not Solution 2. Arch works only using Solution 2 or getty login.
Searched but no answer on Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and what its doing. Assume its killing xorg then executes another session.

Answer: https://access.redhat.com/documentation ... -backspace
