I had a CLI install of Sid for several months and yesterday “upgraded” to a minimal GUI install, using Openbox, tint2, feh, uxterm and leafpad.
I tried to install Firefox and (when that failed) Chromium as browsers, but aptitude said that three packages would have to be removed (elogind, liblogind0 and libpam-elogind) and 12 (i386) packages installed.
The three packages seem necessary for the GUI and I have an amd64 version, so I don’t want to do that.
I have been able to install gutebrowser without aptitude complaining.
N.B. I have the dbus version available installed – I tried installing the nosystemd version which is “older”, but aptitude kept “refusing”.
I am wondering if there is a known issue with elogind, liblogind0 and/or libpam-elogind. These are all version 246.9.1-1.0antix1.
Appreciate any advice referral or comments.

I didn’t have dbus-x11 installed. When I installed that, then firefox and lxterminal installed without complaint. LXterminal launched ok and works fine, but firefox displayed an error message complaining about a dbus-glib-1.so.2 file not being available.
After installing dbus-glib-1-2, firefox launches without an error message.
