Entrance (display manager)
In computing, Entrance //, usually started with the Entranced display manager, is a display manager for the X Window System designed with the Enlightenment window manager in mind. In other words, it's a program that lets you log into a (probably *nix-based) computer.
Entrance is themeable, and is capable of launching different desktop environments from a list, as well as remembering users for auto-login. Customization is achieved by editing a database (/etc/entrance_config.cfg by default).
Entrance is the successor to a program called Elogin.
Its chief developer was Ibukun Olumuyiwa.
The name of Entrance may be a play on words, as the correct pronunciation hints at putting the user in a trance, though it is also the "entrance" to the graphical desktop.
The original Entrance project went on hiatus in 2005. But on 9 August 2012, development was restarted by Michael Bouchaud, who renamed his previous display manager ("Elsa") to Entrance.
