Currently STX is using XDM, which is ugly and lacks a lot of features that people expect. GDM and KDM are both unsuitable for a distribution aimed at really low end machines. I was in the mood to do a little C++ so have started hacking together a new login manager to solve this problem. The base is WDM, effectively replacing the wdmLogin component. It uses FLTK2 since the Equinox team is moving over to this for their 2.0 release, although being a login manager it’ll happily work with EDE 1.x (or any other window manager/desktop environment for that matter). Still a lot to do on it and once the initial fun of something new wears off it’ll probably be given a fairly low priority (the LiveCD Installer really needs finishing), so don’t expect anything too soon; that said here’s a pretty screenshot:
Ah, the lengths I’ll go to just to avoid doing some revision ;).
