Would installing Xephyr enable me to stop my xserver lightdm?
As I mentioned in the first post sudo service lightdm stop bring me to the login screen and does not stop the x server.
lightdm [OPTION...] - Display Manager
-h, --help Show help options
-c, --config=FILE Use configuration file
-d, --debug Print debugging messages
--test-mode Run as unprivileged user, skipping things that require root access
--pid-file=FILE File to write PID into
--xsessions-dir=DIRECTORY Directory to load X sessions from
--xgreeters-dir=DIRECTORY Directory to load X greeters from
--log-dir=DIRECTORY Directory to write logs to
--run-dir=DIRECTORY Directory to store running state
--cache-dir=DIRECTORY Directory to cache information
-v, --version Show release version
Or would this just enable me to run "inside the x server".
Running inside an X server requires Xephyr to be installed but it cannot be found. Please install it or update your PATH environment variable.
Just curious as to why everyone else can issue the command sudo service lightdm stop and it works to stop the x server.
When my system does not.
I would seriously like to be able to manually install the latest Nvidia driver like I can in Lucid. But, it cannot be done without stopping the x server.
Thanks for any input.
