GDM Sessions file for XFCE

Save to /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/XFCE

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-07-20 09:22:10 UTC
it works for me here with FC2 release. The XFCE session is listed in
GDM as expected.

Info: the session files of xfce (or another desktops) are installed in
/usr/share/xsessions (not /etc/X11/gdm/Session). gdm/kdm will search
here. Please make sure that you have installed xfce/gdm packages from FC2.
