Thanks for the information, I want to use ConsoleKit to control user
permission once XFCE is loaded. User permission like being able to
mount, umount cdrom, usb, ipod and have permission for regular users to
read, write into the devices. ConsoleKit seem to be the latest
technology from Freedesktop to do it with multiple login like remote
login, user seat for example, etc. GDM is a Gnome API and if I want to
stay with a pure XFCE + GTK2, I cannot install it as well as its
numerous dependencies on Gnome libraries and other. There an alternative
for XFCE called SLIM but this one is too simple and not enough evaluated
to understand and talk with ConsoleKit. Therefore how to make this
upcoming standards ConsoleKit run on XFCE to control users permission
