Es gibt nur 1 Programm, welches x-session-manager bereitstellt
(/usr/bin/startkde). Nichts zu konfigurieren.

So, it tells me, that kde is the default. But the users get the
"failsafe xterm"-Session when they log in.

I wanted to get rid of all the other sessions exept of kde, because we
use kiosk-admin-tool to restrict the users, that only works with kde.
makes no sence to let them login into the other sessions then. ;-)

So I looked and ask how to disable this "session"-menu, but no easy way
I renamed f.e. /usr/bin/gnome-session - so it it wasn't shown anymore.
Two entries in that session-menu are still alive: failsafe and kde.

they get always that failsafe.

What can I do
a. to get kde as the default
b. get rid of that menu.

Any hints welcome, regards, Dirk
