Hi David,

You might be missing the session file. Both GDM and LightDM look in /usr/share/xsessions/ to determine which window managers to allow you to select.

Here is the one I created for my 11.10 install:

$ cat /usr/share/xsessions/stumpwm.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Stump Window Manager
Comment=StumpWM is a tiling window manager written in Common Lisp
Exec=ssh-agent stumpwm

Hope it helps,
- Steve

Hello David!

Hi all,

I've recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.10 and my previous way of configuring 
stumpwm as a user session
got broken.  Has anyone been able to use Stumpwm in 11.10? Do I need to 
register the window manager
as alternative with gnome somehow?
AFAICT they use LightDM as session manager. Before GDM was the default.
Perhaps you can install/activate GDM and use the same way to start
Stumpwm as before.
