bspwm leads lightdm into a login loop - GNU/Linux

Users browsing this thread: 1 Guest(s)
Hey all

I've ran into this frustrating problem. I am using Elementary os and I am working on getting bspwm working. I have done the setup following the bspwm for dummies wiki article. All is smooth until I try to launch the bspwm session. runing startx results in an error..

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

### And Then..

_XSERVTransSocketUNIXCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running

Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running

I have figured that this has something to do with running lightdm so I log out and when logging into bspwm from lightdm it returns to a new lightdm screen.

Any ideas?
