Kubuntu 10.10: Hide Unwanted Session Types in KDM

E-mail Print PDF

While I predominantly use KDE on Kubuntu 10.10, I like to have a couple of other lightweight desktop environments installed so that I have graphical options if anything happens to my KDE installation (as sometimes happens when upgrading KDE).

I installed WindowMaker and LXDE as my alternatives, however, doing so also added KDM session entries for Openbox and KDE/Openbox, and I'm not interested in those.

Removing those entires is relatively simple.  Open a root shell, open the files in a text editor (I like nano for simple jobs), then add the line "Hidden=true" to each of the files.

nano /usr/share/xsessions/openbox.desktop
nano /usr/share/xsessions/openbox-gnome.desktop
nano /usr/share/xsessions/openbox-kde.desktop

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it. Brian W. Kernighan
