Customizing Edubuntu's LTSP client to start another session

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for your reply, but I already got this far :)

What I was wondering about was what scripts to edit in order to  
prefent the default X session from being started, and start a ICA  
session as default instead.

Is this done by the xinit file or from rcx.d or...?
