Re: xdm: killing xconsole after user logs on

You can do this in the Xstartup script, which is run as root after the
user has logged in and before the Xsession script is run. These scripts
are in /etc/X11/xdm on a Debian system. You can simply put a line "killall
xconsole" in Xstartup, but that could lead to undesired behaviour if
different users log in using X at the same time. If that never happens on
your computer, it's safe.

BTW, all scripts with names that end in "_0" are used for display :0 (the
default local display), the other scripts are used for all displays (they
are used for all other displays, but the scripts for :0 source them,
except for the Xsetup_0 script). You can specify which scripts are used
for which displays in /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config.

See "man xdm" for more details.
