[IceWM]Switch user


Is there any way to configure IceWM to have an option same as KDE, the switch user thingy? And Create/Start a new session?

That feature of KDE has to do with the dislay manager, not the window manager.

Yep, this starts a new session. But what about switch then?
I've tried chvt 7-12 and it does not work.

Just installed IceWm to test it.
It does work here with kdmctl reserve and then switch users via Alt+Ctrl+F7/8/9/etc.
