Re: gdm does not execute PreSession PostSession scripts

There have been many changes in Fedora's gdm this time, no more
gdmsetup program and such, but as far as I can see in the
documentation, the scripts are supposed to run still, but they don't.

It appears to me that neither PreSession nor PostSession is executed.

You can see for yourself if you put something simple in PreSession/Default like

echo "whatever" >> /tmp/checkingOnGDM

It simply appears as if GDM is by passing the scripts altogether.

It is important to me to know if we are just a few isolated people for
whom this does not work. I mean, does it work for nobody, but most
people don't try?  Or does it work for some people?

I have this added to my PostSession/Default to shut down a running instance of POPFile when a user logs out.

lynx -dump &>/dev/null

POPFile does shut down when I log. If I comment the line and then log out and in as a different user that doesn't utilize POPFile, it is still running.

So, the experience I am having suggests to me that PostSession/Default
does execute. This is in F10 and F9.

Maybe it has something to do with the custom commands you have? I know that when F9 was released I had to revamp a couple of little scripts that I automatically ran at login because paths to specific things in the scripts had changed from F8.
