Solaris 10 What's New

Default Desktop Session in dtlogin

Starting with this release, when a user logs in to the Solaris Desktop for the first time, Sun Java Desktop System (Java DS) is the default desktop environment instead of the Common Desktop Environment (CDE). Java DS has also become the default environment for users who chose a desktop environment on an earlier Solaris release that is no longer present in this Solaris release, such as OpenWindowsTM or GNOME 2.0.

System administrators can modify the dtlogin configuration to override the default choices by using the defaultDt and fallbackDt resources.

For more information about defaultDt and fallbackDt resources, see the dtlogin(1M) man page.
