Package: kdebase
Version: 4:
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice to have some debian-specific documentation describing
how to customize sessions.  In particularly, I'm trying to be sure some
environment variables are set for apps launched from the menu.

The KDE FAQ refers one to Xsession, and I think what I need to do is
create ~/.kde/Xsession
have it source my bash start files (or whatever)
have it invoke the system wide script that would ordinarily be invoked.

Various problems make me wonder if this is the right track:
KDE seems to have messed with the system XFree start up programs such as Xsession.
The modification to .kde/Xsession is obviously KDE only, while I'd like any X session (e.g., GNOME) to get the same variables.

The last step (doing what the system wide script would do) involves chasing through the code of different files and figuring out what the system Xsession would do for my particular configuration.  As soon as those change, my personal
Xsession may become dated.  It would be much cleaner for me just to
add my customization.

I looked for a file that might do "just the adding" (some options file),
but didn't see anything that looked exactly right.

I don't know when it got documented, but it can now be found in section 10.10 

I cannot install on the login from Windows or from the panel inside Explorer 
2.2, how does it work?

From ICQ NT or from the control preferences menu within X-Windows you have to 
open a driver for forwarding to the Ultraflat controller.
