Description of problem:

xguest which provides guest/kiosk mode support is only available via GDM now. Would be nice to have KDM support it as well

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2009-03-13 10:22:15 EDT
It's xguest which is only set up to allow GDM. As the xguest specfile:
> The user is only allowed to log in via gdm.

In addition, everything in xguest is GNOME-specific. It has default configurations for GNOME and GNOME applications, it uses sabayon-apply etc.

This is clearly a GNOME-only feature which we cannot support in KDE.
