FSMI OpenSource/ projects/ kdm-gdmcompat

We use kdm as display manager for our Linux clients, but our Gnome users also need to be accommodated. Thus this project provides a tiny replacement for gdmflexiserver and a daemon providing gdm's control socket. It allows screensavers compatible with gdm to integrate with kdm seamlessly, by communicating with kdm via kdmctl. Both desktop environments cooperating more in the future might make this project superfluous.

The emulation daemon is known to work as a replacement for gdm 2.16.x as shipped by Debian and gdm 2.20.x.

How to get it

The source code repository is available using git by running "git clone git://opensource.fsmi.uni-karlsruhe.de/git/kdm-gdmcompat.git". Debian packages and source tarballs are available in our Debian repository.
