where is kdm session configuration?


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?

I'm using slackware 10.0.

I'm using Slackware 10.2 at the moment and reading through /usr/X11R6/bin/xwmconfig...

If you run xwmconfig as root it sets up /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc as a link to one of the files in /etc/X11/xinit. If you're not root it creates $HOME/.xinitrc

Was that the config info you were looking for?

Your thread question addresses a topic different from that addressed by your conversation question.

/opt/kde/share/config/kdm

KDM is the KDE Display Manager but is also known as the KDE login manager. KDM is used only with runlevel 4 startups.

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.
