ximian has taken over


Installed Ximian Desktop 2 on Suse 8.2 Looking good, working well, but I still want to have a choice when logging in (i.e. KDE). How can I go back to the old KDE login window instead of the Ximian login window, or add choice to the Ximian login window? all help much appreciated.

hi

i think the login manager that ximian uses is just a modified version of gdm. use the gdm help in gnome to figure out how to add kde to it.

if you can boot into the command prompt. must be runlevel 2 or 3, you can run startkde to boot into kde. suse manuals or ximian docs may get you more info

regards

Thanx, I found my way into some conf file and changed gdm to kdm. After that I got the old login manager back. However, still didn't find out how to add choice. It's now either/or by changing that file. So, any further help would still be much appreciated. So far I've never been able to find anything helpful in man pages. Howto's usually take up some three weeks of precious time without any guarantee I know the answer afterwards. So, any help is most welcome!
