Switching back to Red Hat login


A few weeks ago or so, I installed Red Hat 8.0. I forgot to make sure I installed KDE, but after I installed it the default Red Hat login screen switched to the plain KDE one. Is there some way to switch back to the default Red Hat one?

Login to KDE as root.

Then:
1) System Settings -> Login Screen
2) Change your Graphical Greeter

There doesn't appear to be a "Login Screen" item under System Settings...is there some way to install it/make it appear?

EDIT: I got Login Screen to appear and followed your directions, but the same thing comes up. Also, I think I mistook xdm for kdm

I assume you are looking for the Bluecurve theme if so:
1) edit: /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf
2) Make sure the 2 variables below are set as shown
Code:
GraphicalTheme=Bluecurve
GraphicalThemeDir=/usr/share/gdm/themes/
Be sure to make a backup if gdm.conf first!

Both of the above variables are set to Bluecurve. The problem seems to be that gdm isn't used. The contents of /etc/sysconfig are
Code:
DESKTOP="GNOME"
and gdm is in /usr/bin, but it still doesn't run on startup .

By the way, thanks for the help so far.

Sorry for the late reply:

I assume you meant /etc/sysconfig/desktop

Try making /etc/sysconfig/desktop look like

Code:
DESKTOP="GNOME"
DISPLAYMANAGER="GNOME"
