I configured Hummingbird on my PC to get the CDE login of my AIX box but I am not getting the full CDE desktop environment.  Although I am getting a window (just like anormal window on the GUI monitor) and can run GUI applications.  I can even run xlock and startx.  Below are the commands that i have issued on the AIX.

/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e
xinit /usr/dt/bin/Xsession

I have read somewhere (I forget to get the link) that my second command does bypass the CDE login environment and I think this is the reason why I am not getting the full AIX desktop environment.

Does anyone knows on how to get the full CDE when logging in from PC using hummingbird?

I've tried this but this is not the one that i want.  I want to get the same desktop environment on the system console.  What I have right now is that I can run GUI applications but the the AIX desktop (with multiple icons) is not appearing on my PC.

I've managed to make it work. It's on the XDMCP settings.

Thanks anyway for the time.
