Subject: [gentoo-user] Starting up gpg-agent (and ssh-agent?)

1 Hi All,
3 I have asked a similar question on this M/L in the past. There seems
4 to be different ways of making sure that gpg-agent is started prior to
5 the desktop being launched, but I can't get any of these to work with
6 enlightenment, which I am currently trying out.
8 Previously, I was using almost exclusively Fluxbox, which when started
9 with startx uses /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/20-gpg-agent as detailed
10 here:
14 Starting Fluxbox using xdm was less successful. It doesn't seem to
15 read /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/20-gpg-agent. I also tried different
16 things like using ~/.xsession, or ~/.xinitrc, or hacking
17 /etc/X11/Sessions/fluxbox, but nothing appeared to work cleanly.
19 Now I use kdm (with /etc/init.d/xdm) to launch enlightenment, but kdm
20 does not read /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/20-gpg-agent either. When kdm
21 is used to launch KDE then the file /etc/kde/startup/
22 is parsed and everything works as expected within KDE. Enlightenment
23 does not have anything similar and kdm itself does not read
24 /etc/kde/startup/
26 What would you recommend I use to launch gpg-agent so that it works
27 with kdm/Enlightenment?
