Switch default window manager?
 
I am using TurboLinux workstation 6.0...i know it really isn't that great...but its all i have right now....Okay here goes
I have both KDE and GNOME installed...it forced me to install GNOME which i do not like to be forced to do anything...anyways how do you switch teh default window manager to KDE? I think i need to do this from the command line because i see absolutely no way to do it in the workstation...

never used that distro, but try running xwmconfig from the command line.
thats how its done in slackware anyways.

man Xsession

Read that and you and personalize your default window manager. Voila.

I'm not familar with TurboLinux but I know switchdesk (insert kde or GNOME here without parenthisis) works on certain distrobutions.

xwmconfig worked fine but only for root...how do i switch the default for all users? is there a way to start x with out starting a window manager?

remove your window manager, it will boot to console. After logging in, you will type 'startx'. thus you would have x without a windowmanger.

okay...but the entire point is to start the non default window manager...so why would i delete it?
