Re: [Xen-users] How do I go from VNC console to a desktop environment?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf was missing, so I made one.

lspci shows no output.
I am either using a paravirtual framebuffer or it's what I want to use.
I don't understand how paravirtual framebuffers work. All I understand is that my Graphics card is not detected when I type "inxi -F" and
I'm under the impression that that should not matter if you can use a paravirtual framebuffer.

"No screens found" usually means that X.org isn't configured properly and wasn't able to guess what output devices to use. Post your xl.cfg(5) file for this virtual machine, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf (path may be distro-dependent), and the output of `lspci` inside the guest. Specifically, it depends on whether you're using a paravirtual framebuffer, an emulated graphics card, PCI passthrough, or something else all together. I think there are also some Xorg-specific tools for diagnosing screen detection problems.

As an aside, and I can't speak on behalf of the list here, but this sounds more like an Xorg or ArkOS issue (i.e. not Xen related), so you'll probably have better luck looking for help in one of those communities. I mean this only in the friendliest way possible, but the error message itself even says "Please consult The X.org Foundation support".

I got this far:


Now my question is how to go from here to login into a desktop environment.
