Debian Wheezy appears to be defaulting to KDE.


I just got done installing a recently downloaded Debian Wheezy ISO and booted into KDE. Just to make sure, I downloaded another Debian Wheezy ISO and that one also defaulted to KDE. A couple days ago I installed Debian and it defaulted to Gnome. I tried googling this and didn't find anything. Does anyone know anything about this?

Please share the exact link to the ISO you downloaded that installs KDE by default.

The netinst CD can be used to install any of the main desktops by default, this has to be chosen in the bootloader. Nonetheless it should install Gnome by default, so this may be a bug in the installer, which would not be that surprising because the installer is one of the parts that is worked on until the new stable is released. Something like that happened before and should be fixed soon.

The last one should install GNOME again.
