      When I’m installing antixcore, one of the options concerns
      installation of a desktop environment.

      This option states that it’s strongly RECOMMENDED to answer Yes for installing
      elogind & dbus-x11 , if you’re setting-up a desktop environment (in my case LXDE).

      What is the reason for having elogind ?
      Does it have anything to do with systemd ?
      If I don’t install elogind, will this have a negative effect on my setup ?

      Many thanks for your thoughts / advice on this.

        Elogind:
        1) Reason to have it?
        Obviously, dependencies of some components of some desktops, please see 2)
        2) Does it have to do anything with systemd?
        Please see Debian elogind’s package description
        This is a piece of code extracted from systemd so that you can use packages/desktops requiring the functionality without systemd.
        3) Negative effect on your setup?
        I do not know in general.
        I have no idea what your setup is.

            @sybok
            @fatmac
            Many thanks for the links that both of you provided. Having read these, it would seem necessary to install
            elogind, given that there is software that depends on logind for it to function properly, the latter being the piece of code stripped away from systemd and which is in elogind).

            I’m assuming I’d probably need elogind, even if I was running a window manager such as jwm on its own, i.e. without a desktop environment …?
