I'm trying to work something out.... It's not really a gdm question,
I've got specific resources tied to specific X screens. So for example
Display :3 gets /dev/scd1.
I'd like to set it up so that all the resources are available to a
group, and the user loging in to that display is made a member of the
group and then removed on logout.
So for example:
yan selene:~$ ls -l /dev/scd?
brw-rw---- 1 root display2 11, 0 15. pro 09.03 /dev/scd0
brw-rw---- 1 root display3 11, 1 15. pro 09.03 /dev/scd1
So if I were to log into a session with Display :3, I would be make a
member of group display3, and could access that resource. On logout, I
would be removed. Also, if gdm is killed, I would be removed. I really
want something temporary; I don't want to muck about with /etc/group if
at all possible.
