Lost my KDE users login screen -ugh!


Was trying to fix a video hardware problem. Had to use YAST in text mode.

Now, when Suse boots, instead of ending in the usual KDE multiple user login screen, I get a text login.

I can manually login and use startx just fine, would sure like to get back to my old KDE login screen.

Feel like a fool. Have putzed around the os trying to fix it, can seem to find the right thing to do.

My kids can't log in. Would appreciate a hand up.

Thanks
