xinit: starting fluxbox/kde automatically
Hey, it seems its been longer than i thought since using linux. I used to use gentoo and arch, but have been too lazy to reinstall them so i just picked up backtrack for the easy install. Now i want to start up in fluxbox.. or kde automatically, and have the graphical user login instead of the default backtrack login that says info about logging in and starting x. i know gnome has gdm, but im not sure what kde has, and what are the files
Im assuming when i type startx its running the top one, and then if i want to run fluxbox i copy .fluxbox into the top one. Kina weird but is that correct? Seems its easier to change one line but w/e.
Second question is how can i just automatically load into the kde graphical login, i forget the name of that file.. -.-... i know its a one line change, but im not sure of what kde's graphical login is called, and where/what the file is?
THanks a lot
How can you name it other than KDM ?
You need to have bootsplash to graphic login, but probably it is not supported in BT.
If you do not like the command line logon and want the KDE desktop to start automatically.
change the following line:
If you want leetmode to start automatically.
ln -s /usr/bin/leetmode leetmode
That will create a link to leetmode in your autostart directory.
If you want to stop your CDROM from ejecting on reboots and shutdowns, you need to alter the shutdown script.
Find the relevant piece of code and alter it to look like the following
# eject cdrom devices
#echo "Ejecting all CDROMs..."
#list_cdrom_devices | while read DEVICE; do
# cdrecord dev=$DEVICE -eject >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
# can't use eject because it's not working with our kernel
# eject -s $DEVICE >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
echo "It's safe to switch the computer off now"
echo -ne "Press Enter to $command "
