I need to create it manually as this will be a multi-seat machine. I plan to create 3 different layouts and start X for each seat that way.Thanks, --Yan
Hi Yan,I too was waiting for GDM to get it's butt into gear, but as far as I've been made to understand, it is "broken" for multi-seat (until 3.4 release? please someone correct me).
I am watching Fedora 17 which will be released early May, because it drops consolekit and enables automatic multiseat support.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ckremovalMe? I can't wait because most of my production machines have been stuck on an old ubuntu, thanks to multiseat being broken.
