Running gdm-control gives "Failed to establish connection"

Hi everyone,

I have Arch Linux installed running Openbox as the window manager without another desktop environment. I am trying to setup shutting down, logging out, switching user, etc.

Whenever I run any gdm-control option (e.g. "gdm-launch --shutdown"), I just get the following error:

** (process:10479): WARNING **: Failed to establish a connection with GDM: No such file or directory

Has anyone seen this before? If I just run "gdm-control" then I get the usage assistance..

Have you setup the GNOME Display Manager as your Display Manager, or how do you get into Openbox?
