Hi Storm,

This is indeed great! Thanks for the script and I am sorry for the late
response: It's just early morning this side, so I got the script soon
after waking up.

In fact, I've already moved it into my ~/bin folder and replaced my
instruction for startx with this one which I named fenstart. Perfect, be
blessed all on this list for all your work, responses and help! ....And
the world happily spins on!

Howdy Storm,

Awsome work! Thanks man!

Can you push that into tools folder into git master? Seems to me very
useful to a lot of users.

Cheers chrys

Howdy Ishe,

I made a script that should work for you. It's attached. Basically
what it does is get the number of the tty and set fenrir's
suspending screen to that terminal, then it launches startx, and on
close, it unsets the suspending screen so Fenrir comes back.

Fenrir will continue to work as expected in other terminals. I
tested it on my computer, and it worked as expected. It will even
check to make sure you're in a plain terminal, and not something
like screen or tmux.

I like the setting of autosuspend of fenrir in given virtual consoles.
However, recently I'd been launching my graphical desktop using the

The problem is, even though the graphical desktop comes up, I will still
continue to get the feedback from Fenrir. So lately I had resorted to
suspending Fenrir in tty 2 where I launch my startx.

My question is, Is there a way to autosuspend Fenrir when startx is
being launched? If there is, how can I do this? Or can this be added as
a feature in future releases of Fenrir?

I am on Arch Linux, and startx will be running the mate desktop. So in
my .xinitrc I just have this line:

exec mate-session

Are there any other parameters that I can enter?
