Better than an xmessage choice window

Posted 04-23-2010 at 09:05 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

Regarding my earlier post about .xinit scripts

This is my current setup, probably a better option. I simply pass options as what I want to execute or just run startx without any options for my normal session including window manager.
