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 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.
