Does anyone know why my Graphical Interface does not load after reboot when I remove " noexec " from fstab?

So if I remove the " noexec " from the /tmp/ entry in FSTAB, it will load the GUI fine after reboot. See the image below.

I already bind /tmp/ with /var/tmp/

# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info

  • Do you have any logs from your GUI/display manager? The nature of the failure suggests that something is being tossed into /tmp and then executed as part of the GUI startup process. – alienth Sep 3 '15 at 19:22
  • I am not sure where to get those logs, could they be here? /var/log/Xorg.0.log I will get back to you later today. – user125971 Sep 11 '15 at 16:12
