Running from systemd¶
This case will cover automatic login to Qtile after booting the system without using display manager. It logins in virtual console and init X by running through session.
Automatic login to virtual console¶
To get login into virtual console as an example edit getty service by running systemctl edit getty@tty1 and add instructions to /email@example.com/override.conf:
[Service] ExecStart= ExecStart=-/usr/bin/agetty --autologin username --noclear %I $TERM
username should be changed to current user name.
Check more for other examples.
Autostart X session¶
After login X session should be started. That can be done by .bash_profile if bash is used or .zprofile in case of zsh. Other shells can be adjusted by given examples.
if systemctl -q is-active graphical.target && [[ ! $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR -eq 1 ]]; then exec startx fi
And to start Qtile itself .xinitrc should be fixed:
# some apps that should be started before Qtile, ex. # # [[ -f ~/.Xresources ]] && xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources # ~/.fehbg & # nm-applet & # blueman-applet & # dunst & # # or # # source ~/.xsession exec qtile start
