Small trick for managing Server Layout with gdm

Friday 21 September 2007

This is a follow-up to the previous post.
Now you need to be able to choose from gdm which server layout you want to use.

Set this small script ( in /etc/X11, and add this to your /etc/gdm/custom.conf file :

# Custom commands
CustomCommand0=/etc/X11/ dual
CustomCommandLabel0=Écran _Double
CustomCommandLRLabel0=Affichage en Écran _Double
CustomCommandText0=Voulez vous vraiment redémarrer en écran Double ?
CustomCommandTooltip0=Redémarre en écran Double

CustomCommand1=/etc/X11/ single
CustomCommandLabel1=Écran _Simple
CustomCommandLRLabel1=Affichage en Écran _Simple
CustomCommandText1=Voulez vous vraiment redémarrer en écran Simple ?
CustomCommandTooltip1=Redémarre en écran Simple

The script is simply creating a link from xorg.conf.dual or xorg.conf.single to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Each of these 2 files are equal only Option "DefaultServerLayout" is different (See the example xorg.conf in previous post).

A lire absolument, l´excellent post sur l´utilisation de la configuration reseau:

Example use on my laptop:



Thursday 9 November 2006
  • For the language chooser (to use the installed locale):
    cd /etc/gdm
    ln -s /usr/share/locale/locale.alias
  • For the Suspend command:
    set SuspendCommand=/usr/sbin/pm-suspend in the [daemon] section of the /etc/gdm/custom.conf file.
  • Get rid of the “pcscd: winscard.c:219:SCardConnect() Reader E-Gate 0 0 Not Found” messages:
    set SecurityTokensEnable=false in this same [daemon] section if you don’t use any smart card authentication.
