gdm overwrites /etc/gdm/Session/fluxbox

Hello there

I'm using GDM as login manager 'cos it's very cool and all.

I use Fluxbox as window manager, but i have to complement it with idesk and fluxter.

So i changed manually de /etc/gdm/Session/fluxbox to look like this


fbsetbg /home/flaab/Arturo/wallpapers/Circulation.jpg &
fluxter &
idesk &
exec fluxbox

Everything works nice until I reboot the computer, whenever I reboot and go back to fluxbox session the file has been overwritten and doesn't have any of the extras I added manually.

I tried even to block the file with

# chattr +i /etc/gdm/Session/fluxbox but doesn't work either.

Any ideas?

Thx to all :-)
