Bug Description

It seems the default window manager is not the one we want.

Temporary workaround to get to a desktop in the alpha-01.iso:

1. hit ctrl-alt-f1
2. log in as lintian/live
3. sudo service gdm stop
4. startxfce4

Changed in puredyne-live:
importance: Undecided → Critical
status: New → Confirmed
milestone: none → 10.10

This should be fixed now. For some reason gdm ignores our selection of wm and uses the first in alphabetical order. See /usr/share/xsessions.

 Renamed default.desktop to Default.desktop (we provide this file via broth) so it is before Fvwm.desktop

It was not fixed.

xfce4 session is called xfce. I guessed it changed, the gdm conf file had xfce4, that's why it was defaulting to the first one available.
