GUIs


Had a little problem today when I booted up...

First time I booted, Linux used KDE for the GUI. I prefer it, at least over what it will only boot into now: GNOME.

How do I fix this?

EDIT: Sorry, figured it out.

edit your .xinitrc file to say
exec startkde
instead of
exec gnome-session
and i dont' know about debian but you may have a utitlity such as switchdesk like in redhat where you can do it grapically
