you want to get into kde or gnome?

the ~/.xinitrc file needs to exec the right window manager

exec /opt/kde/bin/kdestart

exec /usr/bin/gnome-session

if you kill X-server with ctrl-backspace what happens? Do you get a graphical login or runlevel3 console? If former you can select gnome from pull down list and it'll stick there whenever you log out and log back in unless you change to another WM or desktop environment (KDE or Gnome)
