gdmXnestchooser(1)                                                 User Commands                                                gdmXnestchooser(1)

gdmXnestchooser, gdmXnest - run an XDMCP chooser SYNOPSIS
gdmXnestchooser [--background] [--broadcast] [--direct] [--no-gdm-check] [--no-query] [--xnest-extra-options=options] [--xnest=string] [gnome-std-options] hostname DESCRIPTION
gdmXnestchooser automatically gets the correct display number, sets up access, and runs Xnest with -indirect localhost. This ensures that you get an XDMCP chooser that is provided by your machine. You can also specify the hostname whose chooser should be displayed, so that gdmXnestchooser somehost runs the XDMCP chooser from host somehost inside an Xnest. gdmXnest is a symbolic link to gdmXnestchooser and is the same as running gdmXnestchooser with the --no-query and --no-gdm-check options. gdmXnest is useful for running Xnest without actually connecting somewhere. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: --background Run in the background. You can also use -b to specify this option. --broadcast Run broadcast instead of indirect (chooser). You can also use -B to specify this option. --direct Do direct query instead of indirect (chooser). You can also use -d to specify this option. --no-gdm-check Do not check for running GDM. --no-query Just run Xnest, no query (no chooser). You can also use -n to specify this option. --xnest-extra-opExtra=options for Xnest. The default is no options. You can also use -o to specify this option. --xnest=string Xnest command line. The default value is Xnest. You can also use -x to specify this option. gnome-std-optionStandard options available for use with most GNOME applications. See gnome-std-options(5) for more information. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: hostname Hostname whose chooser should be displayed. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Running the XDMCP Chooser From Host somehost Inside an Xnest example% gdmXnestchooser somehost Example 2: Connecting to somehost Directly Run example% gdmXnestchooser -d somehost FILES
