How to tell if I'm using Gnome or KDE?


How do I tell what I'm using and what version? I'm running Red Hat 9 and cannot remember which I installed...

If most of the programs in the Menus begin with K its probably KDE, if they begin with G it probably GNOME.

Press ctrl + esc, If a program called KDE System Guard appears then thats pretty conclusive.

Thanks for the help, I'll check when I'm logged onto the GUI. Right now I'm SSH'd into it. Is there a command to tell?

For the Start icon, I see Red Hat icon.

Try top and look for kdeinit, ( alot of the stuff beginning with k in top will probably be kernel stuff ). If no kdeinit exist then its probably gnome, ( but thats no guarentee ).

Right click the taskbar. I have the option "Help"-->"About KDE", if I click it, it returns KDE 3.2.1.

This also, I believe, works on Gnome.
