  I think I'm missing the link to the <trinity>.desktop file that provides the
choice to launch trinity to the kdm chooser. The only sessions listed are:


  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]
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.
