View Full Version : Select GDM session with LIRC remote

January 12th, 2009, 06:31 PM
Just like the title says, I'm looking for information on picking a GDM session at startup using an LIRC remote. I have a homebrew DVR setup that is currently running MythTV, but my wife would like me to add XBMC as an option. She would also like me to get rid of the keyboard and set everything up to work with my Logitech Harmony remote control.

Here is a list of what I want to do:
1. Boot the computer into GDM and have it set to automatically login as the "mythtv" user no matter what session is picked.
2. Allow my wife and I to pick a session to login to with the remote control (either MythTV or XBMC).
3. When we exit out of MythTV or XBMC, it should drop back to the GDM login screen.

I have a pretty good idea how to do items 1 and 3, but I can't find much information on item 2. If someone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
