erm.. what on earth is an "m/c" ??? using standard abbreviations is fine, but ones that's don't exist is not a good idea.

If you use startx to start the the desktop, just edit your .xinitrc in your users' home directory to start each one in KDE.

And to think I always thought mc stood for Master of the Ceremony.... you know like MC Hammer..

it may well be an technicaical language, but seems to be one you made up. and you seem to be getting very impatient for someone after help...

your question has been asked many times, please search this site.

Ok, here is a more clarified answer to your exact question: yes ( see my first reply, that is how you change your default desktop )
