Hi, I met a problem.

I can use xterm and totalview successfully through xstart, but I can't see the login window, neither the whole remote desktop. I followed the instructions in the tutorial, but it said it need root to change the conf files or run the xdm/gmd, etc in the linux box. But I dont have the root on that.

Can I use xmanager with a non-root manager, or can I see the whole desktop with a common user.

Once you get an xterm, enter the following command in the prompt of xterm:

# gnome-session


# startkde
