Type "startx" to start an Xwindows session and hopefully you may be presented with one or the other....or a choice (havnt run slack for years). If not.... type "kdm" and you can choose from there.

Create a file .xinitrc in your home directory and insert 'startgnome' (if you prefer GNOME) or 'startkde' (if you prefer KDE). Then use startx to run X.
