I get "Trinity" as a choice now in the chooser, but it still drops me back to the console. Here is what I did: (1) create a trinity.desktop file in /etc/X11/sessions [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=XSession Exec=/opt/trinity/bin/startkde TryExec=/opt/trinity/bin/startkde Name=Trinity Comment=The Trinity Desktop Environment. A powerful Open Source graphical desktop environment (2) edit /opt/trinity/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and change: SessionDirs=/etc/X11/sessions Now Trinity and fluxbox show in the chooser, but choosing either and trying to login drops me back to the console. Any reason kdm should not be launching trinity when I choose Trinity as the session? The only .xsession-error was /etc/X11/Xsession didn't exist So I fixed /opt/trinity/share/config/kdm/Xsession (line 46) as [[ -f /etc/X11/Xsession ]] && . /etc/X11/Xsession That cured the error, but I'm still dropped back to the console.
