I'm running Solaris 8 on a Sparcbook. One of my users, when logging in, defaults to Open Windows desktop rather than CDE. All other users get logged into CDE just fine. Is there a file or something that tells the system what default login is? I'm confused as to why it's just for this one... (4 Replies)

7. UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers
I was wondering, if I boot up a Solaris box and the CDE does not come up by default when I log in, does that mean that the box has a GUI at all? If that is the case, where can I download CDE from?
I am accustomed to RedHat and Windows, so unfortunately Solaris throws me off a little bit. (1 Reply)

I performed a sys-unconfig as suggested in one of the other threads to set up IP on hme0. Unfortunately after all is said and done, it no longer boots to the CDE but sits at a command prompt. Any ideas (I don't know Unix). Thanks in advance!

dtappsession(1) User Commands dtappsession(1)
dtappsession - start a new Application Manager session
dtappsession is a specialized version of the Xsession shell script. It is an alternative to using the CDE remote login that allows you to
access a remote host without logging out of your current CDE session. dtappsession starts a new instance of the CDE Application Manager in
its own ToolTalkTM session. It can be used to remotely display the Application Manager back to your local display after logging in to a
remote host with the rlogin(1) command.
A new, independent instance of ttsession(1) starts a simple session management window. This window displays the title
remote_hostname: Remote Administration
where remote_hostname is the system that is being accessed. The window also displays an Exit button. Clicking Exit terminates the ToolTalk
session and all windows that are part of the session.
The Application Manager that is displayed can be used to start remote CDE actions to run in this session. Exiting the Application Manager
does not terminate the session, and it is not recommended. Clicking Exit is the recommended way to end the session. To avoid confusing the
remote CDE applications with local ones, it is recommended that a new CDE workspace be created for clients in the remote session.
The hostname is not needed when the DISPLAY environment variable is set to the local hostname on the remote host.
On a system that is configured with Trusted Extensions, dtappsession can be used for remote administration by administrative roles that
have the ability to log in to the remote host.
dtappsession does not require any privilege, and it does not need to run on a system that is configured with Trusted Extensions. When
installed in /usr/dt/bin on a Solaris system, along with the startApp.ds file, dtappsession can be used to administer the remote Solaris
system from a local system that is configured with Trusted Extensions. However, in this case, the CDE workspace that is used for remote
display must be a normal workspace, rather than a role workspace.
Example 1 Remote Login and dtappsession
After creating a new CDE workspace, type the following in a terminal window:
# rlogin remote_hostname
password: /*type the remote password*/
# dtappsession local_hostname /* on the remote host */
/usr/dt/bin/startApp.ds dt Korn shell script for session manager window
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
| ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE |
|Availability |SUNWdttsu |
|Interface Stability |Committed |
X11/CDE applications that do not register with the ToolTalk session manager will not exit automatically when the session is terminated.
Such applications must be explicitly terminated.

The functionality described on this manual page is available only if the system is configured with Trusted Extensions.
