Projects / loginx


loginx combines the functionality of getty, login, and xinit in one simple executable. It shows a curses-based password prompt and remembers the last logged in user for less typing. It starts X if .xinitrc is present, a plain shell otherwise.

    No good for Slack due to PAM requirements. Interesting idea though, prefer it to XDM or similar for servers where I have non technical users logging in on occasion. It's less scary than a standard getty login but none of the resource wasting of running X-based login managers as they just get a curses menu anyway!
