How do you change desktop environment on Fedora 9?


I went to add software. Added a whole bunch of KDE packages (it wouldn't let me download all and apply). I can't figure out how to set it. There is no 'session' button at my login.

You added "a bunch of KDE packages" or you added KDE? For example, you can add KDE applications and the package manager will automatically bring in the required libraries. This would still not give you the KDE desktop.

If you did get the complete KDE, then it will appear as an option when you login. Assuming you are using the GDM login manager, click on "Options" and then "Select Session"
