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

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come. Patrick Henry
