Gnome?


Hi This is the First time i have got to grips with linux. (mandrake 10)

Anyhow All is well on the KDE side, however i would like to use gnome aswell so my question is how do i start it ive been reading through

man gnome but havent a clue

is it something todo with runlevel?

Anyhow i know gnome was installed by mandrake installation, and to start KDE i key in 'startx' at the bash prompt

is the a command to start gnome?

hopefully i make sense please correct me if i make no sense, heh

thank you.

Yup, the command to start Gnome (from the command line) is gdm.

bmorgan98,

Are you set up to where you click on your "user icon" then enter your password ??

As I remember Mandrake, that window has a button next to the "KDE" that is labeled "Menu" [or something like that] the drop down menu should give you a GNOME choice.
