For automounting of usb, sd cards, etc. I was told I would need consolekit, dbus, and gvfs. I have dbus and consolekit in my default runlevel. My wm is i3 and my file manager is thunar.
~/.xinitrc
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
#
# global xinitrc file, used by all X sessions started by xinit (startx)

# invoke global X session script
#exec xfce4-power-manager &
exec ck-launch-session i3
#input startx

ck-list-sessions always lists it as false but rc-status shows it as running
Code:
Runlevel: default
 sysklogd                                                   [  started  ]
 acpid                                                      [  started  ]
 dbus                                                       [  started  ]
 consolekit                                                 [  started  ]
 cronie                                                     [  started  ]
 net.wlp2s0                                                 [  stopped  ]
 NetworkManager                                             [  started  ]
 cups-browsed                                               [  started  ]
 gpm                                                        [  started  ]
 netmount                                                   [  stopped  ]
 sshd                                                       [  started  ]
 local                                                      [  started  ]
Dynamic Runlevel: hotplugged
Dynamic Runlevel: needed
 cupsd                                                      [  started  ]
Dynamic Runlevel: manual

Seen first post of this thread yet? https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965-start-0.html

The first thing that looks wrong is the lack of dbus-launch in your .xinitrc since there is nothing in i3 that would start it, so, it should look something like this instead:

Code:

exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session i3

No I haven't seen that thread before. I suppose I should follow their advice and change my .xinitrc line?

Yes, follow the first post of that thread step by step. And if it's still not working, please post complete `ck-list-sessions` outputs here, from console as a normal user, before you startx, and from X11 terminal as normal user after running X

Well now I have 2 of them when I got everything set and restarted X
Code:
~$ ck-list-sessions
Session3:
   unix-user = '1000'
   realname = '(null)'
   seat = 'Seat1'
   session-type = ''
   active = TRUE
   x11-display = ':0'
   x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
   display-device = '/dev/tty1'
   remote-host-name = ''
   is-local = TRUE
   on-since = '2014-07-31T19:23:40.663779Z'
   login-session-id = '1'
Session1:
   unix-user = '1000'
   realname = '(null)'
   seat = 'Seat1'
   session-type = ''
   active = FALSE
   x11-display = ''
   x11-display-device = ''
   display-device = '/dev/tty1'
   remote-host-name = ''
   is-local = TRUE
   on-since = '2014-07-31T15:22:13.472460Z'

Yes, the one showing as "active = FALSE" and empty "x11-display-device = ''" is coming from when you login to the text console, it's initialized by the pam_ck_connector.so module:

Code:

$ qfile -b pam_ck_connector.so
sys-auth/consolekit (/lib64/security/pam_ck_connector.so)
$ grep pam_ck_connector.so /etc/pam.d/system-login
/etc/pam.d/system-login:session      optional   pam_ck_connector.so nox11


And when you run `startx`, you get the second session, initialized by the ck-launch-session command, which will become 'active = TRUE' and switch the prev. session for the text console as 'active = FALSE'
It's the 'login-session-id' which is same in both, 1, that tracks your user from active text console login, to active X11 login

So, the output you posted, looks exactly correct. You have it working!
