But it won't be the window manager for KDE, Enlightenment will be used instead of KDE.

I dont think you can. In KDE you have to use Kwin.

I believe in GNOME though, you can use whatever WM you want.

Enlightenment

Yes. I have used both Gnome and KDE through several release of each. At one time I used Enlightenment with Gnome and I currently use Sawfish. Somewhere in Gnome's configuration files there is the option to specify which window manager you want to run.

With KDE I have never seen the option to switch window managers. Does Bogdan's script run KDE with Enlightenment?

It runs enlightenment, kdesktop and kicker. On it's first run kdesktop launch KDE daemon, dcop server and so on:

374 ? S 0:00 kdesktop
376 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: Running...
379 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: dcopserver --nosid --suicide
382 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: klauncher4
384 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: kded
391 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: kio_file file

So all KDE application that I need starting nearly as fast as in KDE. Sure, some features like kicker's task bar will not work. But it is not KDE now

Hmm... I find one bit easy way - it possible to get same result by

export KDEWM=/usr/bin/enlightenment
/usr/bin/startkde

But it does not working for now
E 16.5 hangs up nearly at 78% of loading (by progressbar of my theme)
AFAIK, it dies when executing executing

kwrapper4 ksmserver --windowmanager /usr/bin/enlightenment

If I will get it working, I'll have kde with enlightenment with no hack at all.
