Above matches my 13.1.

From the login manager one must select the session type TDE if it isn't the
default or last used.

WINDOWMANAGER is not valid in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager AFAIK.


Above works for my 13.1 on host gx28c, but it is using trinity-tdm-14.0.0-1,
not 3.5.13.

On my 13.1 host big41 with, those settings strings are the same,
but instead of a greeter I get a mini window that tells me I need to
Ctrl-Alt-Del to begin that ignores Ctrl-Alt-Del, so I have to login on a vtty
and use startx to start TDE.
