Take a look at thishttp://people.w3.org/~dom/archives/2005 ... -with-gdm/
According to the author this should also work to start a remote KDE session through kdm
Note - I haven't got a clue
I have no need for a remote session so I don't want to use more of my precious data storage on top of my body
Thanks, that article does XDCMP which is basically X over IP...... I am trying to stray away from that, as I can't always guarantee I have an X terminal available where as VNC proliferates even on winslop. Walk into some place like a library or some office winslop machines all over the place, UltraVNC or some VNC is likely to be on a PC in there and I can get in to my box at the office or home. I would prefer to not leave it on and logged in, even if its locked. If its stuck at the login screen its a little more secure.
X is great in that it allows for X to be transported alot of ways allowing for remote working.
I was hopiong that the KRFB daemon could be started as part of the boot up process so that the KDM login would appear for a KRDC/VNC client. This is akin to a winslop service.
It appears that XDCMP is the only way to do this on Linux as the server.
Thanks for the link. I guess I will just have to accept that remote XDCMP is the way to go..
This is one of the reasons an install to USB stick would make my life so much easier...then I could guarantee I had an X terminal.
