Question How do I get from GNOME to KDE?


I used Xconfigurator to try and adjust my resolution from 640 to 800. Now when I reboot, I get GNOME, not KDE. How do I get to KDE?

I'm using redhat 6.1

Assuming you use "startx" to load X - edit your ~/.xinitrc file.

For gnome:

exec gnome-session

For KDE:

exec startkde

For Window Maker:

exec wmaker

For BlackBox

exec blackbox
