to start X without owning the console, see /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config > Thoughts? Personnally, on debian, I use that in /etc/inittab : 2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L -n -l /usr/local/sbin/autologin 38400 tty2 and autologin : #!/bin/sh exec su -l user -c startx -- vt4 Thanks to getty in inittab, the console is owned by the launcher, and /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config do not nead to be touched. to customise your xsession, just customise .xsession. -- Guillaume Pinot http://www.irccyn.ec-nantes.fr/~pinot/ ``Computers are good at following instructions, but not at reading your mind.'' -- Donald E.
