I had tried XFCE awhile back under GDM and that did not work. I will
endeavor to test it today under KDM.
I have also been reading like crazy on the subjects of display
managers, window managers and desktop environments. I have figured out
how to get KDM on my machine, switch to it, then try the different
desktop environments. I can confirm what you saw, Tomas, in regards to
KDM and Gnome, Fluxbox, and KDE.
