At the moment trying to login through SLIM (same with SDDM) into LXDEyou get the message "Failed to execute login command" forabout 2 seconds, then the X session terminates and your areback at SLIM.
Effectively through the login managers we have, LXDE is notusable at the moment. I haven't tested using just "startx".
I open this bug so that it can be referenced and is visible. To meit is known since I've sent in the meta package for LXDE.-- PGP and more: https://people.pragmatique.xyz/ng0/

Does ~/.xsession-errors contain any hint? That is, try to log in andfail, then go to tty1 with ctrl-alt-f1, log in, and run“cat ~/.xsession-errors”.
Thanks,Ludo’.

Hi,
I would've appended the file if it existed. But $home/.xsession-errordoesn't exist here.-- https://pragmatique.xyzPGP: https://people.pragmatique.xyz/ng0/

Indeed, not sure why.
I was able to reproduce the problem in a VM with the attached config.It boils down to this:
Toggle snippet (5 lines)$ /gnu/store/9fdxlzwbsfzhncwznlx2lrp8rdq61f7v-lxde-common-0.99.2/bin/startlxde cp: cannot stat '/etc/xdg/openbox/LXDE/rc.xml': No such file or directory/gnu/store/9fdxlzwbsfzhncwznlx2lrp8rdq61f7v-lxde-common-0.99.2/bin/startlxde: line 47: /gnu/store/9fdxlzwbsfzhncwznlx2lrp8rdq61f7v-lxde-common-0.99.2/bin/lxsession: No such file or directory
The ‘cp’ error seems harmless but the other one is obviouslyproblematic.
Could you check what’s wrong with ‘startlxde’?
Thanks!
Ludo’.

Yes, I will do so though if someone else feels like pickingthis bug up, feel free to do so as it could take some timefor me to get back to this.
