 How to auto-logout after exiting XWindows/desktop

Hi:

Distribution is Caldera OpenLinux Base 1.2.  I've figured out how to
automagically launch Xwindows when a user logs in.  (.profiles file, just
added a startx to it).  Now, how do automatically log the user out when they
exit the Xwindows desktop.  Is there a way to do this?  (Speak slowly, I'm a
newbie...)  Doubly thankful if you would reply via email as well as posting.

Thanks and regards,
Dave

 How to auto-logout after exiting XWindows/desktop

I suggest you check out the man pages/how-to's on xdm.  Xdm replaces the
normal login prompt with a direct prompt to X.  Then on logout, it goes back
to the xdm prompt.  I think this is what you were trying to implement with
.profile additions.  Xdm is a much better way to go.  I would be a little more
explicit but I really don't know the details.  I haven't set it up myself.
There have been a lot of posts about it lately so a search on dejanews on "X11
login" ought to be helpful as well.  Good luck.
