230 The LXDM daemon configuration file
231 (<filename>/etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf</filename>) specifies options that
232 include numlock on/off, backgraound image (bg), session, etc. You can
233 set a default session by uncommenting the line:
234 session=/usr/bin/startlxde and replacing <command>startlxde</command>
235 with your session of choice. For <application>GNOME</application>
236 session=/usr/bin/gnome-session. For <application>OPENBOX</application>
237 session=/usr/bin/openbox-session and for
238 <application>XFCE</application> session=/usr/bin/startxfce4.
239 </para>
240
241 <para>
242 It is also possible to set the preferred session on a per-user basis by
243 editing the ~/.dmrc file for each user and adding:
244 <screen><literal>[Desktop]
245 Session=xfce</literal></screen>
246 </para>
247
248 <para>
249 You can replace the default dummy face in the greeting screen by another
250 image representing your user. For that, copy or symlink the desired
251 image to your home directory with the name <filename>.face</filename>.

267 <para>
268 By convention, X should be executed at runlevel 5, consequently, the
269 same is true for <application>lxdm</application>. However, the LFS default
270 runlevel is 3. Changing to runlevel 5, from the console (as
271 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user) starts the
272 <command>lxdm</command> bootscript and presents the
273 greeter screen:
274 </para>
275
276<screen role="root"><userinput>init 5</userinput></screen>
277
278 <para>
279 In order to permanently set the default to 5, starting the
280 <command>lxdm</command> greeter screen automatically, you can modify
281 <filename>/etc/inittab</filename>. As the <systemitem
282 class="username">root</systemitem> user:

284
285<screen role="root"><userinput>cp -v /etc/inittab{,-orig} &amp;&amp;

290 One important script, executed after login is
