If my understanding is correct, it means that this peice of script will
be responsible of launching i3 (replacing line =fvwm >/tmp/fvwm.log
Yes. And it takes care of shutting down tde after your windowmanager session is finished.
And because it starts tdeinit before your windowmanager session, tdeinit does not show up
in list of managed programs of your sessionmanager - if you use any.
In my case, I rely on any "dm* /etc/init.d/
script (like xdm, tdm,
lightdm, tdm, gdm3, etc.) to do so.
I have dig into X11 init sequence, looks like a Hell to me, like the
sourcing (or not) of /etc/profile for X login sessions...
My feeling is that we never know who is responsible for what, you read
cryptic documentation, you configure things, and in the end nothing
works like expected because each *dm* scripts has its own hard-coded
$ man xinit
Just put the lines in ~/.xinitrc, restart your X session and look for tdeinit:
$ pidof tdeinit
If it's there, then all is set and done. If not, rename .xinitrc to .xsession and
retry. If again without luck, try renaming it to .xsessionrc . If unlucky again (you run
GDM?), rename it to .xprofile (the guys from you-know-whose-name-we-do-not-speak-out-loud
read the docs and decided to break things again).
Oh, you might have to make your .xinitrc executable ;-)
