changing the default desktop in login screen
yeah the default is gnome and i kinda not like gnome you see. so when, by reflex, i type in my username and password then naively hit enter, it loads gnome. how annoying. each time, i have to change the "default session" to "kde session". so, anyway to make kde default?
obviously, yes. i hope so.

yes im lazy.

and i dont mean that i hate gnome. no its nice. with the feet. but im used to kde you see.

anyways, im just so tired
good night
so long, and thanks for all the fish
