Description Noah Howerton 2018-04-09 18:30:11 UTC
line 154 xhost+ si:localuser ... needs to be in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/what-ever.sh ...

... or maybe somewhere else all I know is that in Xsession it fails to have any affect ... effectively breaking the X11 gnome access for remote logins/ssh/etc.

I'd expect a lot of bug reports of people angry, confused .. and complaining about "no protocol specified" errors.

This is a show-stopping bug for anyone running gnome.

... and the fix is in the title ffs.

This sentence alone is ground to dismiss the bug. You're talking with volunteers building a distro which is offered to you for free. The only thing demanded from you is respect. So please, tone it down a notch.

Now, to your actual issue:

You should describe what you attempt to do exactly, not an attempted solution that might be wrong (even if it works, it might not be the right thing)
