Hi folks

The Fl_TeacherTool page listed below is very informative and helpful. 
There are however two parts that perhaps Robert/kind_guru can update 
for K12LTSP v.4.4.1 new install users:

<<<4. The last step is to edit your window manager startup file. I 
use IceWM for my students. So I edit /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/IceWM >>>

IceWM is no longer under Sessions, so the xhost line can not be made 
part of the #!/bin/bash file... WHERE did it go???

This leads into the 2nd question, in v.4.4.1 (yum updated) how does 
one set IceWM as the default? The "old" IceWM.desktop change is no 
longer possible...
