So I fresh installed the community edition of Manjaro with I3 earlier today. Seems like everything is great except i always get stuck in console having to sudo run lightdm to get to a login screen and onto my desktop.
When i do manage to login, I get an error titled “Unable to get connection to the message bus session”
I have fully updated my system, and upgraded the kernel to 514.
Other posters have said updating fixed the problem, but I feel I have updated everything I can to no avail.
Hit me with those tasty terminal commands to give y’all all the info you need to hopefully help me out. if you are willing of course.
I updated my gpu drivers and still nothing.
This is what i get from lightdm --test-mode --debug
