The only sessions listed are: default failsafe Where do the "session" links go for Trinity? I created a desktop file in: 08:02 supersff:/opt/trinity/share/config/kdm> cat /etc/X11/sessions/trinity.desktop [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=XSession Exec=/usr/bin/starttrinity TryExec=/usr/bin/starttrinity Name=Trinity Comment=The Trinity Desktop Environment. A powerful Open Source graphical desktop environment But where do I need to create the link for Trinity to find it? I suspect I will need to create a specific desktop and link in the Arch kdebase package that will solve this issue. I just have to figure out what and where :) Also, kdebase should have pam by default. Is there a command I can run against kdebase to check the compile options? I have no /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config, so we can cross that off the list. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
