Gnome/KDE defaults


I installed RH 7.3 with both gnome and kde installed. Gnome comes up as the default. How can I change it to KDE as the default? I am guessing edit something in /etc/X11?

At the command line, type "switchdesk" to get a selection window of KDE / Gnome.

I think the file is ~/.Xclients-default
You need
Code:
exec gnome-session
or
Code:
exec startkde
(I think) for gnome or kde respectively.

I hope this helps
