Re: Xfce 4 + LXDM problem

This should be better asked in the lightdm forum. Anyway, what is the content of ~/.xsession, ~/.xinitrc and /etc/lightdm.conf files? In /usr/share/xsessions there should be file called lightdm-xsession.desktop that defines the window manager system wide. Check it content especially the exec line. You can also put that at the end of users ~/.xsession file to specify different window manager upon login for that user.

I installed LXDM. I could not get it to run it as the default display
manager (yes, I had /usr/sbin/lxdm in /etc/X11/default-display-manager),
I had to login and run it from tty. I managed to fix that by adding lxdm
before exit 0 in rc.local, now my only problem is after I log in through
lxdm it tries to use lightdm-xsession. I don't have and never have
installed lightdm or lightdm-xsession or whatever package it is looking
for, so when it can't find it, it says it can't find it and its falling
back to default session and I have to click ok to continue. So its just
a mild irritation, but still. Here is the exact message it gives me:

Xsession: unable to launch "lightdm-xsession" xsession ---
"lightdm-xsession" not found; falling back to default session.

Any ideas?
