here is its manual
switchdesk - graphical and text mode interface for choosing desktop
switchdesk [desktop name]
switchdesk provides a simple method of choosing between the various
desktop environments available under Red Hat Linux, including GNOME,
KDE, and FVWM2. If X Windows is running, switchdesk will bring up a
dialog box which allows the user to choose between the available desk-
tops installed on the system. This dialog follows the appearance of
the user’s current desktop as closely as possible. If a desktop name
(KDE, GNOME, XFce4, FVWM, WINDOWMAKER) is supplied as an argument, or X
is not running, switchdesk can be used from the command line.
switchdesk returns 0 on success, 1 on error.
Stores the currently selected desktop.
