ok when I Log out, I find that I have no ability to switch to gnome, i believe I have installed all the gnome packages, I can list them of for you...
15 packages in all...
I realize if i go to yast control center > software > install and remove software.
then at yast, pull down the menu and find selections, i should have something about gnome, but I dont...
so obviously im missing something...
and as for the last poster, I cannot find a prefrences on my main menu... Perhaps Im finding a different main menu than yours, or we have different distrobutions...
Thanks for the help!
