how do I switch to KDE

in .xinitrc file in your home directory, you can type:
exec startkde for KDE
or...
exec gnome-session for GNOME
if your running redhat (not sure about other distros)
you can type:
switchdesk in the terminal
and a screen will pop up giving you an option...

hi

if you are using redhat

edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop file to be like this


DESKTOP="KDE"
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"


thats it
