Hi All,

I'm trying to track down where lightdm is added to my PATH:


$ echo $PATH
/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/gamesI checked in /etc/environment, and its not there. I also checked in ~/.profile, and it not there.

Am I the only guy who thinks letting a window manager be a security manager is a bad idea? We've already seen its incompetence. Confer: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/967938 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/967935 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/967935).

Where is lightdm added to PATH?

Jeff

Thanks dgharmon. So, I see it was added somewhere. That answers the "WHY". Next is the "HOW".

How do I remove it from my PATH? It does not appear to be added in the ways I know.

Related question: I'm using gnome-session-fallback (and not the netbook/tablet stuff) for the desktop.

Why is it even running in Gnome Classic mode?
