I know this question had been ask before and I tried to follow but end up with no result.
I running on RH7.3, I just install fluxbox from tar file. And i want it to add in to my login manager so everytime when I boot up I can choose fluxbox to start as my X window. I had tried to edit the following script /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession into this
# now, we see if xdm/gdm/kdm has asked for a specific environment
case $# in
if [ -x /usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.$1 ]; then
exec -l $SHELL -c "/usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.$1";
case $1 in
exec -l $SHELL -c "xterm -geometry 80x24-0-0"
exec -l $SHELL -c "gnome-session"
exec -l $SHELL -c "/usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.kde"
# fall back to twm
exec -l $SHELL -c "/usr/share/apps/switchdesk/Xclients.twm"
Ok let me do a bit of experimenting. I found kdmrc file. Session is set to Xsession in xdm dir. But there is an entry for SessionTypes. May be you should change that. See /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc. I will also try and post back if I find something useful.
sarin you are the best . It work so do you think its necessary to change the setting in Xsession also? or just kdmrc? Anywa cant get use to fluxbox still figuring out how to change BG pic and how to add more items in the menu.
