gdmXnestchooser(1)			  User Commands 		       gdmXnestchooser(1)

NAME
       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 pro-
       vided by your machine. You can also specify the hostname  whose	chooser  should  be  dis-
       played,	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 with-
       out actually connecting somewhere.
