which file to configure? (gnome login manager)


I've just installed slackware 9.1 and is still rather new to linux, but I'm getting pretty much hang of this now.. But it's one thing I'm still not really in to, and it's how to set up some of the X11:s settings...

I really don't like either gnome or KDE, but openbox is the right for me.. So i downloaded the newest version, 3.0 and compiled and installed it..

Now, all I want to now is, how do you get it into the list in the Gnome Login Manager? I think it should be that you edit some file of some sort?

have a look at your /etc/X11/ folder and specially the gdm files in there also do a man gdm
