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