You can specify settings for security, remote network logins, the X server, and session and session chooser setup by clicking on the tabs in the GDM Setup dialog.

Configuring kdm

The kdm client, which is part of the KDE desktop suite, offers a graphical login similar to gdm. You configure kdm by running the KDE Control Center client kcontroi, as the root operator, by clicking the Control Center menu item from the KDE kicker or desktop panel menu. You can also start KDE Control Center by using the kcontroi client at the command line like so:

In the Index tab of the left pane of the KDE Control Center window, you click the System Administration menu item to open its contents, and then you click the Login Manager menu item. The right pane of the Control Center window displays the tabs and configuration options for the kdm Login Manager, as shown in Figure 6.2.
