Want to switch what X uses


I want to switch from fluxbox(which wasnt loading everything correctly) over to KDE or GNOME but cant seem to do it. That which manager screen never comes up, it always would just load up flux automatically. Now it loads a default X screen with a bash console instead of asking me to load kde or gnome.

How do i fix this?

What runlevel are you using? Run 'xwmconfig' to choose default wm.
