I’m running into a wall trying to set up tumbleweed (or even leap) on a pi 3 with only a touchscreen. After the initial setup, a login screen appears. With autologin disabled, no onscreen keyboard, and broken wifi out of the box, I can’t get past this screen.
I know I can complete the setup with a keyboard/mouse or an ethernet cable+ssh, but would prefer not to connect anything else to the pi.
My questions are:
**How can I enable autologin on the pi?
**Editing /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and setting DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN=“yes” has no effect (possibly because the default pi user is root?)
**Failing autologin, (how) can I enable an onscreen keyboard for the login screen?
**Is there a way to get wifi working on firstboot?
**I can make the suggested changes for wifi to /etc/dracut.conf.d/raspberrypi_modules.conf while the microsd card is mounted on my computer, but can’t run mkinitrd for obvious reasons.
**If I can somehow get wifi on firstboot, how can I configure wicd to connect to my wifi?
**Not sure where the wicd config file in located (does it accept network settings in wpa_supplicant.conf?)
Ah I’ve been using opensuse for 15 years and still make dumb mistakes like that. Always good to have a second pair of eyes - much appreciation for the assistance.
I did get the wifi working on tumbleweed once autologin was correctly enabled.
For anyone else in the same situation, removing sdhci_iproc from /etc/dracut.conf.d/raspberrypi_modules.conf, then opening the boot manager in yast and hitting OK runs mkinitrd. Wifi should be up after a reboot.
