windows manager list in KDM
I just had the problem on 2 computers. I recently did a fresh install of
Debian 2.2 r2 on my Desktop and my Laptop. I installed most
packages,xfree86, gnome, etc.... From the cd it installs XDM, and makes
Window maker my default. No biggy, because untill I started using KDE,
window maker was my choice. So then I connected to the net, set Debian in
my sources list, then did an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.
After that, comes my first question, Since the default install use XDM, and
I now have gnome and Window Maker, Where do I set which one starts as
After the update I select to install GDM, to make sure everything is working
fine. Once installed and after a reboot, GDM comes up and I see in its
session menu list, I have the selections for Debian(window maker) and Gnome.
I leave Debian(window makes) as default. So far so good.
Now, I add kde.debian.net into my sources list, Update, and using Dselect
add task-kde. I check and make sure, and it's set to install KDM, and
remove GDM. After everything is finished, I reboot. Now the real problem.
The sessions list on the KDM only has 2 listings, default and failsafe.
Default is Window maker. So what the H@## happened to Gnome, and why is KDE
not listed. If I log into default(window maker), on the menu, under window
managers, all are listed, and I can change between them. So, why is it not
in the KDM sessions list. I first thought this was just a glitch, but it
happened on both computers. I hope someone can help.
