gdm2 .xsession and openbox

setting up your .xsession file while using gdm2 and openbox - debian woody

so you grabbed gdm2 and set it up as your login screen and downloaded a whoopass theme to impress your friends with.

you fire up an xterm vi an .xsession file and add the ever useful gkrellm & and bbpager & hoping to see them when you login.

you log out then back in but nothing happens


on your login screen select debian as your default - start openbox via your .xsession
