KDM window manager drop down listing

Hi...for some reason even though I used urpmi to install enlightenment and Xfce4 they are not listed in the login screen using kdm...I have checked /etc/X11/wmsessions.d/ I see all the winow managers listed. I have read the kdm information in konqueror...I can't find anything obvious on why I don't see enlightenment or xfce4 as a option to run at login. Can anyone help? Mandrake 9.2 Kernel 2.4.22-10mdk pretty much stock install other than urpmi to upgrade bug/security fixes..........

(just a guess...)

check your kdmrc file - mine is in /etc/kde3/kdm - or search for it

look for line:

SessionTypes=default, twm, [other wm's]

iirc, this line defines the drop-down list....

remember to back it up before you go playing with all the settings....

Ok thanks will check it out...I had looked at this file before...maybe there is a default in the doc folder, and I accidentally was viewing this one....rather than the in use file..
