Log into XDM on remote display
At our university we sometimes start up a "kiosk-environment" on all our student computers. This is achieved by logging in to a special account with a very restricted fvwm2 environment as its home.
Our current problem is that we physically need to login as the special user at each terminal. I.e. someone has to go from computer to computer and login to the account via an xdm (kdm in our case).
Does any one know how to remotely start up X and login as a specified user?
I've searched the documentation for kdm but have only seen some info on how to login to a remote kdm and get the session on your own box.
(Please note, that the question is not the more common one: how to start up an application on your own computers X server from a remote host.)
