    what is /etc/init.d/? for xfce

    So, for stopping gdm, I can run
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
    and for kdm
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop
    but what is it for XFCE? I thought it would be
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/xdm stop
    but that's not it. In fact, there isn't much starting with "x" in init.d:
    Code:
    pearson@pearson-linux-1337ness:~$ ls /etc/init.d/x*
    /etc/init.d/x11-common  /etc/init.d/xserver-xorg-input-wacom
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    Doing an:

    Code:
    apt-cache show xubuntu-desktop
    Says that it depends on gdm so, I assume it just uses gdm with a custom theme.
    Don't try to make something "fast" until you are able to quantify "slow".

    Ah, that makes sense, since it's so GNOME-like. I have all 3 installed, so I didn't even think about that. You're always a help vor.

    Glad to help. On another note, there is actually an xdm but, it's the old school display manager that people struggled to get to work long ago and finally settled on just typing "startx".
