Question Changing back to KDE


Can anybody please give me the function which changes what window manager I use.
e.g. running: (the command) kde

would use kde the next time I log on X

That was the one I was thinking of. Thanks.

There is only one problem - the damn varsity is using fvwm95 and I want to use KDE, but they disallowed me to run switchdesk.

Is there a loophole that lets me use KDE? I don't have any root permissions

Make a .xinitrc file and put it in your /home directory.
