Today I confirmed my X/i3/lightdm doesn't like to get up at morning.
I wake up and startup my debian install, all's nominal.
I log in and it crashes, going back to the greeter screen.
I just go to a console and do my shit, suspecting there's some Y2K fuckery going on.
When 10 am rolls in, I restart the lightdm service and log in, successfully.

What a shithole this software is.

startx master race

Yeah, this thing has had me considering going full console or doing just that. It's not that bad (I don't usually use the computer so soon during the day), but before doing huge changes I'd like not to obliterate the workflow in the computer I use for working sometimes, too.
So I suppose a test run in an old computer is in order.

What are you talking about workflows and shit? I dont get it at all.
you literally just log in at the console and run 'startx', its not a big affair.

There's a whole lifestyle to being a "startx" guy anon.
You have to wear special pants and only go to certain kinds of parties.

I mean being full console
7 guest@cc 2019-07-16T17:33:55
I doubt anyone who's ever typed "startx" has ever been invited to a party.

I haven't been to a party since I started doing that, you might be onto something. I haven't worn pants either.

>I doubt anyone who's ever typed "startx" has ever been invited to a party.

i used to dj parties with a dm-less netbook. i used an application called xwax which is an open source digivinyl player (in ncurses). digivinyl uses records pressed with a timecode tone (made for proprietary systems like serato or traktor) and plays audio files at the playback rate instructed by the timecode tone. if you pitch down (playback speed down) your turntable 6%, it slows the mp3 down 6%. so this would allow you to beatmatch and mix two different mp3s using vinyl on turntables as a user interface. one of my friends even scratched with it. i never learned how to scratch, but on the other hand my scratching friend never learned how to use computers. anyway i typed `startx' on that debian netbook a lot and have been invited to many parties so anon has failed to consider a corner case.
