How to keep only XFCE in GDM sessions menu?


I want full installation of Slackware 10.2 and at the same time, I want to restrict all users to use only XFCE. If possible, I want to remove all entries in Sessions menu of GDM/KDM except XFCE so that all users should use only XFCE.

I am using Slackware 10.2 in an educational institution where it will be convenient to maintain only one desktop but still I need full installation of Slackware for the sake of meeting all dependencies. Any pointers in this direction?

Thanks for your help,

You could remove other window managers
Or remove .desktop files at /opt/kde/share/apps/kdm/sessions.
GDM is not included in Slackware 10.2..

I wouldn't delete them because you may need them in the future, just remove all read permissions (including roots) from all the sessions. After that give only the XFCE ression read permissions.
