Starting KDE from gdm?
I just installed kde 3.1.2 from download.kde.org on top of a pretty
stock woody distro. I didn't install kdm. The problem is that kde
isn't offered as a login session under gdm. I don't know much about
configuring gdm, but there is a script under /etc/gdm/Sessions called
"KDE" that looks like it ought to start kde. However, gdm seems to be
ignoring that. Under the session menu in the gdm login screen I have:
- Gnome Chooser
- Failsafe Gnome
- Failsafe xterm
Does anyone know how to get KDE to show up on this list (and presumably
then to run)?
BTW, gdm is the original woody version. Also, I had to upgrade my XFree
to 4.2 because of my video card. I used the xfree packages from:
I also installed woody using the 2.2.20 kernel and then upgraded to
2.4.18 using the kernel-source package. Those are the major mods I've
done since the installation.
