I've installed xnest under kubuntu but there's no menu entry to create a new
nested kdm login screen. What command do I use to get a new kdm login in a
nested window ? http://snipurl.com/13pmu says I need to turn on xdmcp but I'd
rather not. from the console, I ran the command
Xnest :1 -ac -geometry 1024x768 &
and this gave me a window.
from the console, I could get X apps to run by commands such as
gimp --display :1
However, when I ran startkde --display :1 , I couldn't run kde in the nested
window. I could do kicker --display :1 and kdesktop --display :1 and therefore
get a rudimentary kde desktop running but not the kdm login screen, as --display
is not a valid option for kdm.
Can someone out there help?
