Angry How to Configure Icewm as auto login GUI in Fedora 5


Hi,

Can anyone advise me the step on how to configure Icewm so that I can make it as my default auto login GUI when I boot up my box? I am using Fedora 5

Thanks

From the console as root and each user that you want to use IceWM as the GUI type:

switchdesk IceWM

Or select it from the GUI log on screen sessions menu, it should be listed.

Hi Lenard,

Thanks are you saying that I have to install the switchdesk rpm, after that which X windows file should I edit?

Yes if the switchdesk rpm is not installed: yum install switchdesk


No X windows file needs to be edited.
