Newer KDM and KControl


Anyone know how to add sessions to KDM through KControlPanel so that I can choose from WM's to use? I looked through the program several times, but I can't find anything about adding different WM's like XFCE. Gnome, KDE, TWN, and all of those are in there, and so is "Custom" which is the user's default for in rc.3, but I can't find a way to add an option that just says XFCE4 and launches that. I've edited /opt/kde/share/config/kdm/Xsession but nothing's changed in KDM. And I KNOW KControlPanel is supposed to let me edit this because it did before I upgraded it with swaret to the most current for slack-current. Now don't say to just use xwmconfig and select XFCE4, because this is a workaround, not a fix.

Set up a new session file for XFCE4. Your session files most likely live in /etc/X11/Sessions. My session file simply looks like this:
Code:
startxfce4
startxfce4 is a script that comes with the XFCE4 distribution and takes care of loading XFCE4 and reading your personal settings.

No, I don't think you follow me.... I can start XFCE4 through KDM, but only if it"s the user's default WM when they issue startx from rc.3 I'm interested in being able to edit the /opt/kde/share/kdm/kdmrc either by an editor or preferably through KDE's control panel. The thing is that when I edit /opt/kde/share/kdm/Xsession it doesn't change the WM option list when I load KDM.
