221 The LXDM daemon configuration <filename>/etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf</filename>
222 file options includes numlock on/off, backgraound image (bg), session,
223 etc. You can set a default session by uncommenting the line:
224 session=/usr/bin/startlxde and replacing <command>startlxde</command>
225 with your session of choice. For <application>GNOME</application>
226 session=/usr/bin/gnome-session. For <application>OPENBOX</application>
227 session=/usr/bin/openbox-session and for
228 <application>XFCE</application> session=/usr/bin/startxfce4.
229 </para>
230
231 <para>
232 It is also possible to set the preferred session on a per-user basis by
233 editing the ~/.dmrc file for each user and adding:
234 <screen><literal>[Desktop]
235 Session=xfce</literal></screen>
236 </para>
237
238 <para>
239 You can replace the default dummy face in the greeting screen by other
240 image representing your user. For that, copy or symlink the desired
241 image to your home directory, with the name <filename>.face</filename>.

257 <para>
258 By definition, X should be executed at runlevel 5, consequently, the
259 same is true for <application>lxdm</application>. However, BLFS default
260 runlevel is 3. Changing to runlevel 5, from the terminal, as
261 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user, makes the
262 <command>lxdm</command> bootscript to be executed, obtaining the
263 greeter screen:

265
266<screen role="root"><userinput>init 5</userinput></screen>
267
268 <para>
269 In order to permanently set the default to 5, obtaining the
270 <command>lxdm</command> greeter screen automatically, you can modify
271 <filename>/etc/inittab</filename>, as <systemitem
272 class="username">root</systemitem> user (the instructions below also
273 make a backup, so you can easily revert the modification):
