Switching desktops menu


Hi all,

as you know, at the login stage (runlevel 5) you get a choise of 'Sessions' which include KDE, GNOME, Xfce, Failsafe and Default options. I've installed Sawfish WM, but it hasn't appeared in that menu. A whole day of searching for configs for this menu through /etc and /usr/X11R6 directories was successless. Could anyone help me in this problem?
P.S. I'm using FC3

Just try using switchdesk <desktopname>. This command should be in konsole or a shell.
It will bring the desired desktop

Cheers

Thank you gnukish, I know about it, but my goal is to bring all WM/desktops into that menu and I don't know how to do it.

I think there is a conf file where u must include the sawfish wm.
menu.conf I think is the file. Iam not sure, though u can give it a try.

Cheers.

I've found a solution:

you need to go to /etc/X11/dm/Sessions and create a file sawfish.desktop analogically to gnome.desktop which is already present there.
