The switch user applet also gives you a pull down list of users who
are currently logged in I think as well as letting you log in a new
user into a new desktop session.

When you "switch user" who is not yet logged in, gdm starts a new
greeter and lets the additional user login. You can think switch back
and forth between logged in users using the say switching mechanism.

If you do multiple startx instances I'm not sure the user switching
sees the multiple instances that way, startx might not run coordiated
gdm's. I haven't personally tested that.


I see - thanks.  I'm not running gnome, but KDE, so I don't think
that'll work.


I'm coming in a bit late on this, but the switch user feature has been around in KDE for quite a while. I used it when I used to run SuSE.
