where is kdm session configuration?
KDM is the KDE Display Manager but is also known as the KDE login manager. KDM is used only with runlevel 4 startups.
I remember when I installed slack it asked what I wanted to use for the "default" session (kde,gnome,fluxbox,...). Where is this configuration information stored?
What gilead wrote. . .
You can run xwmconfig
manually at any time. As gilead mentioned, if you run xwmconfig
as root then the utility establishes a soft link in /etc/X11/xinit
from the xinitrc
script you selected to /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
. That link always establishes the default GUI for the entire box. As gilead mentioned, if you run xwmconfig
as a normal user, the utility copies the selected xinitrc
file from /etc/X11/xinit
to your home directory and renames the file as .xinitrc
. All of this affects running X from runlevel 3 and not from runlevel 4. When you run the GUI from the KDM (runlevel 4), KDM will create a file in your home directory called .dmrc
that keeps track of the GUI environment you selected from KDM.
