Talking 2 Questions, Session Log Files & Boot


I have 2 Questions:

(1) Where do I find the Session Log Files?? Everytime I reboot & choose "Save Session" I have an Error Window that comes up & says kdesudo..........No command arguments supplied. If I
choose....START WITH NEW SESSION ......in Session Manager, I do not get the Error.
I was thinking I could find the Log file & delete it.


(2) I want to change my boot menu to make Kubuntu my default Operating System.
I have Dual Boot kubuntu 7.10 gutsy & Win XP.

Thanks for your help

Choose the option to show hidden files in your home folder and look for an xsession-errors file, that might give you a clue as to what's going on.

** Alert ** Make a backup copy of your /boot/grub/menu.lst before making any changes.

To change your default boot option, Just edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file and either change the default entry number or arrange the bootable partitions that are listed to the order you want.

Talking Session Errors & Grub Boot Edit

Thanks Nexbus, I edited my Grub Boot Menu & it works great, Did have to restore Once........Screwed up & wouldn't boot. HaHa.


I still need answers to My ERROR Message on Boot-up.....When I save Session.

Error Message on Desktop after bootup says:

Kdesudo
no command arguments supplied

When I click ok....It goe's away, until next time I save Session & then Rebbot.

Any help is appreciated

Talking Session Errors & Grub Boot Edit

Thanks Again Nexbus...makes sense.

I feel pretty proud about editing my Grub Menu.
I not only changed which operating system boots first
I also eliminated a left over kernel.

You showed me the way.........Thanks
