Re: [K12OSN] Broadcast Message under Gnome Success!

Hey, has anyone got this working on startup with IceWM? if I run
"kdeinit  kwrited" (without --no-kded) on a terminal it recieves
messages from wall.  I jsut can'f figure out how to run it from
startup.  The icewm manual says that it will excecupte a file called
startup in /etc/X11/icewm.  But it doens't work.  Any ideas?

I also fixed kwrited crashing (run "kdeinit --no-kded kwrited" instead
of just kwrited).

Here's what you add to /usr/share/gnome/default.session at the end:

7,RestartCommand=kdeinit --no-kded kwrited

(that is a double dash btw before no)

Also,  you need to update num_clients by one number (ie: I changed from
7 to 8 because the range 0-7 is of course, 8)  If in doubt, read the
comments at the top.

I have no clue how this will affect users with custom session files in
their .gnome2 directories (ie: don't know if kwrited will launch if they
ALREADY had a custom session).

Enjoy!  Happy Wednesday!
