awesome boot error

Post by Deleted User 7758 »

This error is occurring about when the desktop environment should be loading (Mate)

It should be logging in user diet straight to the desktop.

Update: reverted to booting as user root and it booted properly. Is it not possible to run as user dietpi?

Hi,

yes that's correct, currently it's not possible to start a desktop as non-root user. This is similar to following Github post. There a possible workaround is described as well.
