awesomewm hangs on login on AWS + NICE DCV

0

Having used awesome wm for years, I am now facing problems wanting to use it on my corporate machine (aws instance with graphical interface via Nice DCV). Upon logging in, i.e. typing in the password, nothing happens but ubuntu hangs in the login screen.

Anyone any ideas on how to fix this?

On reddit someone posted

Most likely Awesome WM does not support the XDG autostart specification, you may need to add /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dcv/dcvxdgagentlauncher to the session startup scripts

but I have no idea what that means or how to do that.

Help is appreciated, thanks in advance

Can you let us know which version of Ubuntu you are using?

The NICE DCV log files can be used to identify and troubleshoot problems with your NICE DCV server. The NICE DCV log files can be found in the following location on your NICE DCV server:

Please check the logs located at "/var/log/dcv/server.log" to identify any specific errors.

You may refer the following documentation to check the available logs: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/dcv/latest/adminguide/troubleshooting-logs.html

Also, please make sure that the post-installation checks are performed to ensure that your NICE DCV server is properly configured.

I am using a Ubuntu 20.04 image. Gnome, xfce, etc. are working properly but as soon as I use a window manager on top like i3 or awesome it hangs upon login

~ sudo DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=$(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | grep -v grep | sed -n 's/.-auth ([^ ]+)./\1/p') xhost | grep "SI:localuser:dcv$" /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority: 1: ip-10-101-62-18MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1�@Nx�o�ue�s��ip-10-101-62-18MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1�@Nx�o�ue�s: not found ~ sudo DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=$(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | grep -v grep | sed -n 's/.-auth ([^ ]+)./\1/p') xhost | grep "SI:localuser:dcv$" /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority: 1: ip-10-101-62-18MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1�@Nx�o�ue�s��ip-10-101-62-18MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1�@Nx�o�ue�s: not found ~ sudo DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=$(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | ^C ~ sudo DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=$(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" sudo DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=$(ps aux^C ~ echo $(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | grep -v grep | sed -n 's/.-auth ([^ ]+)./\1/p') /run/user/129/gdm/Xauthority /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority ~ echo $(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | grep -v grep | sed -n 's/.-auth ([^ ]+)./\1/p') xhost | grep "SI:localuser:dcv$" ~ echo $(ps aux | grep "X.-auth" | grep -v grep | sed -n 's/.-auth ([^ ]+).*/\1/p') xhost | grep "SI:localuser:dcv$" ~
