Re: how NOT to start x-session but x-window-manager instead

To quote Erik Steffl <steffl@bigfoot.com>,
#   I know I can do it that way (for xdm or startx) but I don't want to
# completely override nice debian system of startup... we have these
# x-session-managers and x-window-managers etc. and I would like to
# how to work within this system, I now how to use update-alternatives
# use one or another x-session-manager or x-window-manager but how to
# choose x-window-manager over x-session-manager during X startup -
# a question. brief poking around shows no obvious way to do it other
# remove all the x-session-manager alternatives... not very elegant...

You're right. That's very ugly. :) You didn't mention, though, how you
start X. Do you concistently use any graphical login manager(s)? Which
one(s)? Or do you tend to use 'startx'?
