Tmux error when started.

I installed Artix and stared i3 in the `startx` when I log in

Now when I run tmux I get the following error message:

Code: [Select]
    81 \[    20.241\] (WW) xf86OpenConsole: VT\_ACTIVATE failed: Operation not permitted

I already tried to add the line `allowed_users=anybody` to the file `~/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config` but tmux does not start. How do I solve this issue

What does that Xorg log file say?

I have added it to a paste bin here

I assume there is something of with the permission but I am not sure where this can be changed.

Is your user part of the "video" group?

Jep I have added the user to the video group. But Tmux show the same error message

Can you show us your .xinitrc file?

Looking over you xorg log, it says the intel module could notbe found. Have you installed your intel graphics card driver?

I have installed the driver
Code: [Select]
 xf86-video-intel 
. Do I have to initiate it in the openRC, too?

and here is my
Code: [Select]
.xinitfile 
 
Here

I might be wrong but I would say that I just start i3

Do you use the command startx or xinit?

Please try with xinit if you have not been.

I use the `bash_profile` file and call startx when I replace it with xinit I get an other permission denied message

the main error message is

parse_vt_settings: cannot open /dev/tty0 (permission denied)

my bash profile looks as follows

Code: [Select]
#
# ~/.bash_profile
#
[[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc
exec startx
exec nm-applet

Can you remove that from your .bash_profile? Try running xinit manually from the console after login. It is easier to find if the problem is with tmux and xorg rather than a problem with autostarting xorg.

I removed the `startx` line out of the file and ran `xinit` then I get the following error message

Add this:
Code: [Select]
needs_root_rights=yes
to /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config

If that file already exists, show me the content please.

The file contains

`allowed_users=anybody`

 $ sudo cat /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
allowed_users=anybody
