startx with systemd


I’m trying to start X from systemd (Angstrom - Beaglebone black). So far, all my attempts failed. Starting X from command line works perfectly.

Any hint how X is started from systemd?


By creating / adding a service. I have not done this myself, so do not know how it all is done, but I’ve seen it done recently. googling “systemd services” should help.

One link i found quickly just now searching :

Usually on Linux systems you simply install a desktop manager like
GDM, KDM, XDM.... This way you get a userlogin. But I never tried this
with Angstrom.
