creating an xfce 4 entry at session login


I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction, I want to add an entry for xfce4 (it is installed) in the session manager. I'm using rh9 and have entries for gnome-ximian (dammit), kde, failsafe, etc, but would like to create one for xfce.

Thank you

Are you using GDM(gnome desktop manager) or KDM?

If you're using RH, then I think it's GDM. If it's GDM, I think you need something like this in the file /etc/gdm/Sessions/Xfce
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
# /etc/gdm/Sessions/Xfce
#
# global xfce session file -- used by gdm

exec /etc/X11/Xsession /usr/bin/xfce
(The above is modified from a fluxbox startup file. So it may or may not work. )

Sorry, I'm not familiar with KDE. Perhaps you could search www.google.com/linux for a KDE guide.
