For some bizarre reason, today I wanted to switch from kdm to gdm without leaving the gui. I opened up gnome-terminal and entered
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
and selected gdm.

Then the part I was proud of: I opened screen and typed
sudo service kdm stop; sudo service gdm start
It worked perfectly, and I was presented with the gdm login screen.

the clouds.
How black and dark is the road I travel.

It was very helpful, which I...

Ask not what Linux can do for you...

Posted 05-20-2010 at 11:27 AM by rich_c

Over the past week or so a few things have come along, like the tone of some forum threads for example, that lead me to wonder if the general public are ready for Linux on the Desktop. (Note, not the other way around!) In fact, Linux on the Desktop is just one part of it. Are people outside of the FOSS community able to understand what the community is about and are they able to interact with it without firmly putting their feet in their mouths and upsetting/angering everyone involved?
