Wink How to select between KDE/Gnome Desktops at startup


In earlier versions of Fedora it was possible at logon to choose which desktop we want to start-up with, but this facility is missing in Fedora 10.
Also, there was a program available on the net that could facilitate the switching from Gnome to KDE desktop.
Now, I don't remember it's name.
A help will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

Are you running kdm or gdm? Both of them allow you to select which session to run (e.g. gnome or kdm) at the moment of logging in. There should be a Sessions menu.
Cheers,

Due to the mentioning of switchdesk, I could use switchdesk and know at the time of logon, a line appears below the logon window which enables me to choose between KDE & Gnome.

Thanks a lot.
