# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)
exec openbox-sessionI have used rcconf to disable slim.Reboot and I am asked for username and password at the console login but...the password is not recognised!Do I need to completely remove slim?Is there a setting in /etc/init
I have enabled root to login from screen. I want disable it keep normal and guest user on login screen only because even if I login with normal user for shutting down my machine I have to login with root which was not a problem before enabling root login from screen

First,open a terminal window from Applications->Accessories menu.
Then,execute following command:
Hi, I'm installing 12.04 on a new machine. I've been using 8.04. In 8.04 I accessed my windows manager (either gnome or fvwm) from the command line, using startx. In this setup I was able to set a number of environment variables, which were utilized in my startup script. But 12.04 boots to a GUI, which is nice, but I can't set my environment variables.
