How can I do this???


When logging into the *nix machines at school, the user is presented with this very nifty login screen with a choice of window managers. I myself have a few different window managers installed on my *nix machine and I would love to be able to do something like this. Any idea's how?

If you use kdm you'll get those options.
There's this app (I never tried it) called selectwm that let's you select a window manager at X startup.

See if you have a ~/.desktop file, and there specify the name of the wm.
But I think that you must log in with only console...

GDM works as well...I believe from the xceern shot that the school is using XDM witch is more than likely on your mahine if you have X installed which it appears you do.
