change this (e.g. YaST on SuSE Linux). This will

you do not wish to use these tools, the following instructions might be useful.</p><p>First, ychange to the xdm runlevel (runlevel 5 on
Red Hat and SuSE systems) by editing your

a line saying <strong class="userinput"><code>id:3:initdefault:</code></strong>. Change it to

scripts into <code class="filename">$<code class="envar">TDEHOME</code>/env/</code>. Make sure their names end in

usually a folder named <code class="filename">.trinity</code>
(notice the period at the beginning) in your home
folder. If you want scripts to be executed for all TDE users, you can
put them under <code class="filename">$<code class="envar">TDEDIR</code>/env/</code>, where $<code class="envar">TDEDIR</code> is the prefix TDE is installed (you can find this out using the command
<strong class="userinput"><code><strong class="command">tde-config --prefix</strong></code></strong>).</p><p>If you wish to start a program after TDE has started, you may want to use the
<code class="filename">Autostart</code> folder. To add
entries to the <code class="filename">Autostart</code> folder:
<p class="orderedlist"><ol type="1"><li><p>Open Konqueror.</p></li><li><p>Select Go-&gt;Autostart from the menubar.</p></li><li><p>Right-click in the window view area and select Create New-&gt;File-&gt;Link to

from the command line using <code class="filename">startx</code>, then toggle to a different console
to login in.</p><p>To enable more than one user to log in at one time on the same
computer (sometimes referred to as fast user switching)
configure the program that logs you in to allow more than one
session (or, in X Window System terms, display) at a time.</p><p>In TDE, this program is called TDM which stands for TDE
Display Manager. If you are not using TDM as your login screen
then you will need to consult the documentation for the software you are using on how to
accomplish multiple sessions.</p><p>By default, this will be configured at installation time automatically
if TDM supports virtual terminals on your system (currently Linux only).
If it was not configured automatically, consult the TDM manual, section
"Specifying permanent X-Servers".
After modifying tdmrc, you will have to restart TDM; just
invoke <strong class="command">killall -HUP tdm</strong>.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><table width="100%" class="bottom-nav"><tr><td width="33%" align="left" valign="top" class="navLeft"><a href="webbrowser.php">Prev</a></td><td width="34%" align="center" valign="top" class="navCenter"><a href="index.php">Home</a></td><td width="33%" align="right" valign="top" class="navRight"><a href="applications.php">Next</a></td></tr><tr><td width="33%" align="left" class="navLeft">Webbrowsing with Konqueror</td><td width="34%" align="center" class="navCenter"><a href="index.php">Up</a></td><td width="33%" align="right" class="navRight">TDE applications</td></tr></table>
