Is /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession really used by all display managers?
@Werner: the line that you need to add is not anything like
'xhost +'. Instead the user who is currently logged in needs to be added using
the 'server interpreted' method. On Linux the Xserver can identify to which
user a process belongs which is trying to connect (please check 'man 7
Xsecurity').
If you or anyone else sees issues with that approach which I don't see ATM
please educate me what they are so that I have arguments to support my old
patches upstream.
To me the patches currently only matter when the OS doesn't support secure
determination of the owner of a connecting process or when TCP transport is
allowed. The upstream community today cares for neither and thus will reject
any additional code which solely benefits either cases.
