GDM - The GNOME Display Manager


gdm [options]
gdmsetup [options]


GDM is a replacement for XDM, the X Display Manager. Unlike its competitors (X3DM, KDM, WDM) GDM was written from scratch and does not contain any original XDM / X Consortium code. GDM runs and manages the X servers for both local and remote logins (using XDMCP). See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gdm/ for more details.
gdm is main executable. gdmsetup is a graphical tool for easily changing the most commonly used options.
For full documentation see the GNOME help browser under the Applications / System Tools section.


gdm and thus also gdm accept the following options:
I -nodaemon
Do not fork into the background
I --no-console
No console (local) servers to be run
I --preserve-ld-vars
Preserve LD_* variables
I --version
Print the GDM version
I --help
Print simple description of accepted options
gdmsetup accepts all standard GNOME options.


Configuration is done either by running gdmsetup or by editting the /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf (usually, could also be /etc/gdm/gdm.conf) file. The graphical tool does not support all the options possible so editting the configuration file is sometimes necessary.


GDM is being written and maintained by George (Jiri) Lebl <jirka@5z.com> based on the original codebase by Martin K. Peterson <mkp@mkp.net>.
