GNOME desktop in Kubuntu after updates?


Hi I'm relatively new the linux and recently installed Kubuntu on my LG R500 laptop. A couple days ago after getting comfortable with the KDE4 interface, my laptop booted into the gnome desktop instead of KDE4. I didn't install any updates other than recommended updates so I'm not too sure what happened, but I'm mainly concerned with returning my desktop to the KDE4 environment. Is there any sort of reversion technique that can be used in Kubuntu or does anyone know what might have caused the gnome desktop to take over?

Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

Log out. Then, while logging in, after selecting/entering your username but before entering a password, somewhere on the screen you will see a selector menu listing KDE and Gnome as desktop choices. Choose KDE. Enter your password and you're in. The login process will remember your choice until you change it again.

Such a simple solution! If I hadn't set it to auto login I would like to think I could have figured that one out myself...but probably not. Thanks a ton!
