Re: Xdmxp login to remote machine via gdm

Ok. So I've now got the right gdm - the version info mentions the remote x explicitly as fixed. I believe my problem is now in the custom.conf. I've edited the /etc/gdm/custom.conf and added the following lines:
[chooser]
Chooser=/usr/libexec/gdmchooser
[greeter]
ChooserButton=true
None of this has worked. I must be cursed here or something... :) So I tried setting ChooserButton to enable- NG. I ran gdmchooser from the commandline and it worked so its not that. What have I missed?

    Subject: RE: Xdmxp login to remote machine via gdm

    Just to address the last post on this subject - Where my problem
    lies is not in allowing others accessing this computer by remote x
    but this computer accessing others by remote. A search on google
    produced several docs stating that only certain gdm versions will
    allow you to choose to access a remote x server.
I checked out ltsp but it seems more based on allowing remote
    access in this computer then setting up this computer to access
    others (I could be wrong though, but I can't see where it is). I
    just updated the software and went from gdm-2.20.1-5 to
    gdm-2.20.2-2. No good. I've edited the custom file but no change.
    I'll just uninstall this version and try and locate the version
    you have mentioned to me- maybe its the key to it all...
Thanks all.
