	I'm getting there. 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]
Comment=The Trinity Desktop Environment. A powerful Open Source graphical
desktop environment

(2) edit /opt/trinity/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and change:


	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. Any quick
fixes Serghei?
