BlackBox Problems


I am haveing a problem with blackbox not showing up on the session menu when I log in. I don't have a .xsession or .xinitrc file in my home folder but I did find a gdm file in .gnome2 folder in my home directory containing only:
[session]
last=Default
Is there a way I can configure this file so blackbox shows up on my session menu? Also, I tried this before with the same version of red hat on the same computer and last time blackbox showed up automattically on the session menu. I don't know why it's not showing up this time. I also had a problem with black box back then (I had to reformat the computer because I was trying to install slackware but failed) with the themes and them not showing up. I would get just blackboxes with no text in them and I install the artwiz font. I hope I can get help this. Thanks.

yeah that should be easy enough to hack it in manually. in /etc/X11/sessions (or a *similar* directory.. you might need to poke around depending on your distrobution) there should be some files called Gnome, Kde etc... or maybe 01Gnome 02KDE depending on the system. just open one of those files and make a similar version for blackbox, named appropriately. if that file is in place just restarted xdm and it *should* show up.
