Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2010-05-03 16:00:24 CEST
By default, TL allows the user to fully configure the session startup, using the ~/.thinlinc/xstartup mechanism. However, very often, what you want to do is just select a certain profile. This is currently not every easy to achieve. xstartup.default calls 


But tl-run-xstartup.d is a all-or-nothing thing: If you include it, you'll get the profile selector dialog, no matter what. The only exception is if you have export TLCOMMAND. Works for tl-run-windesk, but still a bit ugly. 

I think this should be easier. Perhaps tl-select-profile should simply exit if TLPROFILE is already defined?

One somewhat ugly solution:

export TLCOMMAND=`tl-config /profiles/$TLPROFILE/cmdline`
. /opt/thinlinc/etc/xstartup.default

The scenario here is that the system has multiple possible profiles and the user wants to avoid having to select one every time they log in.
