NAME

sdm-login - prompts a user for login  

SYNOPSIS

sdm-login  

DESCRIPTION

presents the user with a login screen, using zenity(1), similar to the xdm(1) login prompt. instead of using the XDMCP protocol, sdm-login uses ssh(1) X11 Forwarding to encrypt the entire ssh session.

configuration options are defined in /etc/sdm/sdm.config and /etc/sdm/sdm.config.$hostname

if autologin is set to yes, the login prompt will not be displayed, and sdm-login will attempt to log in as the same user as the hostname of the system, unless the user variable is defined in one of the configuration files.  

FILES

/etc/sdm/sdm.config /etc/sdm/sdm.config.$hostname  

BUGS

does not respond properly to kill signals.
