CDE in Solaris is only CDE 1.x, which only supports ICCCM session management.
There's no support for X11 session management (libSM.so) nor editing of the
individual sessions (except manual hacking the files, but there's no chooser
(like xsm) to select a session a startup/login).

Well, maybe OpenMotif will also include CDE some day and then we can port CDE
2.1 to Solaris :-)

You're looking for "xsm", the X session manager.

Uhm, I don't think that Sun shipps "xsm" with Solaris... does it ?

1. Saving desktop configuration will not work,..

Hi,

  I am having a rather silly problem and I'd appreciate any tips
available. I'm running Enlightenment with KDE. Everything was running
fine, but just now, I stopped and restarted X. All of a sudden, there
are popping up 15 xterms, where I usually only have 4. I tried killing
the rest and saving the config using the ``Save current session`` option,
but it is not doing it right, or I have something confused. I've tried
checking the config files, unfortunately, it seems _ALOT_ of things have
changed since RH5.1 and RH6.1. If anyone can tell why the hell 15 xterms
have decided to invade me, I'd appreciate it.

  Its currently more of an annoyance than anything else, I'm just killing
all of them, feel free to Cc to my e-mail address. Thanks kindly in
advance.
