I recently installed gnome-shell on my new Archlinux and X is running on TTY1. Is this is a normal behaviour?


                      .o+`                 rkmax@satellite

    Don't know about Arch but this is the default on Fedora 16. – Joseph R. Jul 10 '13 at 15:42
  • Yeah I think this is a newer thing, but perhaps also something to do with how X is built or configured, since I notice ubuntu still punts GUI's onto a higher VT. – goldilocks Jul 10 '13 at 15:49
  • @goldilocks Do you mean the tty for a graphical session is configured into X at compile time? This seems a bit inflexible... – Joseph R. Jul 10 '13 at 16:03
  • @goldilocks i have other question why WM: Not found is show if i have installed gnome-shell? – rkmax Jul 10 '13 at 16:17
  • How do you start Gnome: with GDM or xinitrc? – jasonwryan Jul 10 '13 at 18:31
