Shell Desktop Selection
 
Just a quick Q. Whenever I start X from the shell it runs GNOME whereas I would prefer to use KDE. How can I choose which desktop it runs from the shell?

Cheers,
Dan

If you have a file .xinitrc open it, if you don't create it

The only line you need is
starkde

if a gnome line is there comment it out

edit your .xinitrc file (if there is none, then create it) and insert ::
exec startkde
if the file does exist and if it says :: exec gnome-session then replace that line with the one i said above...
or whenever you are in X you can open up terminal and type
switchdesk
and select kde from the list...
