Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109650
GDM does not save session preferences
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
Before logging in via the GDM graphical interface, GDM does not save
the "Session" choice. For instance, if I select KDE as my session and
then after logging out and then log back in, it sets my session to the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select KDE as your session at the GDM login screen
2. Log in with your user credentials
3. Log out of KDE
4. Don't select a session at the GDM and provide login credential.
This will set your session to GNOME instead of KDE.
Logs into GNOME
Should log into KDE
GDM saves them in .dmrc but does not read them on log in.
See my comments in bug #109749 for more.
For me, changing "ShowLastSession=false" into "ShowLastSession=true"
in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf seems to do the trick...
Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
