NAME

wdmlogin.conf - configuration options for wdmLogin
 

DESCRIPTION

/etc/X11/wdm/wdmlogin.conf specifies geometry and font attributes for wdmLogin, the login widget that is a component of the wdm package. An alternate location for this file can be specified via the wdmLoginConfig resource in /etc/X11/wdm/wdm.config.
 
wdmlogin.conf uses the somewhat ill-documented libproplist file format. The file must begin and end with an open- and close-brace, respectively. Between the braces, three options are available:
 
geometry = (w, h, x, y);
If set, this option allows the wdmLogin window to be resized and repositioned within the screen. The x and y coordinates specify the location of the top left corner of the window and are optional.
 
aa = <yes|no>;
If set to yes, then support for antialiased fonts is enabled. Note that this is not currently supported by libWINGs in Debian, and thus has no effect.
 
multibyte = <yes|no>;
If set to yes, then support for multibyte character sets is enabled. Note that this is not currently supported by libWINGs in Debian, and thus has no effect.
 

EXAMPLE


{
geometry = (530, 240);
aa = no;
multibyte = no;
}
