You would need to remove dtlogin altogether, and instead launch X and a dtession. However this would mean that by default you'd get a "root" owned session, you might want to su to a non-root user before launching the dtsession ( or other WM )

IVMAN-LAUNCH(8) 					      System Manager's Manual						   IVMAN-LAUNCH(8)

ivman-launch - launch script for Ivman SYNOPSIS
ivman-launch [ --exit-with-session <cmd> ] [ OPTIONS ] [ COMMAND [ ARGS... ]] DESCRIPTION
ivman-launch is a simple script used to launch Ivman. Its sole purpose is to ensure Ivman is closed at the end of a user's login session. You can use it if your session manager does not properly close Ivman when you log out. ivman-launch supports the same command-line options as Ivman, and one additional option: --exit-with-session. Thus, there is no point using ivman-launch if you do not need to use this option. If you supply a COMMAND (with optional ARGS), the the specified command will be run after ivman is started, and ivman will be killed after that command exits. OPTIONS
--exit-with-session <cmd> ivman-launch will block until the command 'cmd' terminates, at which point it will kill Ivman and exit itself. If the command 'cmd' is not running when ivman-launch is started, Ivman will exit immediately. Note that this option implies Ivman will be called with the '--nofork' option. option. --debug --nofork --system These flags be passed to the launched ivman command. EXAMPLES
ivman-launch --exit-with-session xinit & The ivman process will be started, then the xinit process is watched. When the xinit process exits, ivman is killed. Placing this command in an ~/.xinitrc file would cause Ivman to launch in the background when your session begins, and exit when your session ends: ivman-launch /usr/bin/x-window-manager The ivman process is launched, then /usr/bin/x-window-manager is run, when x-window-manager exits, ivman is killed. This is an example of how ivman might be launched from Xsession in order to chain several programs together in one session. SEE ALSO
