Re: gdm does not execute PreSession PostSession scripts

I've noticed that the customized gdm PreSession/Default and

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.

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.

Well, I don't think it is something in the script, since it does run
if I just type it's name on the command line after startup.  Also, the
echo commands that write messages to a text file don't show up.

You mention that you have scripts that run at login. Are you running
them through some way besides gdm PreSession.  How do you do it?

For what it's worth, the echo command works in both PreSession & PostSession for me.

For echo append the file had to already exist. For echo create the file
was created.

Is selinux messing with you? Here, I have it enforced and it isn't inhibiting the echo writes to a file in /tmp.

I just run my scripts that I utilize at login by adding them to System/Preferences/Personal/Sessions They are just cleanup scripts, etc.

.... but I guess that's technically actually in-session rather than
pre-session, maybe? I don't know if that will fit your requirements.
