Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2019-03-22 23:52:33 UTC
ebuild currently has:

>	if use consolekit; then
>		opt+=( --with-session-info=console-kit )
>	elif use systemd; then
>		opt+=( --with-session-info=systemd )
>	else
>		opt+=( --with-session-info=none )
>	fi

we should check if elogind can serve the same purpose.

Plus: reconsider IUSE=+consolekit

It clashes with the planned switch of desktop profiles to +elogind. This package is apparently able to run without session-info, so it should be fine without a default; desktop profiles at this time are setting +consolekit globally anyway, except if otherwise defined by systemd subprofile.

Please feel free to introduce a elogind use flag and update the configuration as necessary.
