How do I replace the standard text login screen with the TDE login screen?
Your Unix-like distribution might have its own setup tools to change this (e.g. YaST on SuSE Linux). This will be the safest way to enable the TDE login screen. However, if for some reason you do not wish to use these tools, the following instructions might be useful.
First, ychange to the xdm runlevel (runlevel 5 on
Red Hat and SuSE systems) by editing your
The location of TDM might differ on your system.
For changes to take effect immediately, type init 5 (for Red Hat systems) at the shell prompt.
It is risky to initiate a graphical login without checking beforehand whether it works. If it fails to work, you would be in for a hard time getting back.

To enable more than one user to log in at one time on the same computer (sometimes referred to as fast user switching) configure the program that logs you in to allow more than one session (or, in X Window System terms, display) at a time.
In TDE, this program is called TDM which stands for TDE Display Manager. If you are not using TDM as your login screen then you will need to consult the documentation for the software you are using on how to accomplish multiple sessions.
By default, this will be configured at installation time automatically if TDM supports virtual terminals on your system (currently Linux only). If it was not configured automatically, consult the TDM manual, section "Specifying permanent X-Servers". After modifying tdmrc, you will have to restart TDM; just invoke killall -HUP tdm.
