How to find out what xterm am I using
 
Is there a command to find out on what xterm I am (gnome, kdm, etc)?
I currenlty have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

thanks in advance!

Gnome is a desktop,
kdm is a display manager
xterm is a terminal

These are all different things.
Are you asking to determine the desktop or display manager or terminal?

If its the desktop then you will be using Gnome Desktop as you have Ubuntu.
The display manager (default) is gdm for Ubuntu
The terminal is gnome-terminal

Thanks for your response...well how can I check the display manager then. I guess your email already responded my question but in case I dont know whether I am using kdm or gdm.
Thanks again!
