Change to Gnome (or Xfce) from KDE...


Anybody tell me how to do this?

I loaded a KDE .iso and I like Gnome better (PCLOS10)...

Most distro give you the change to install more than one GUI using the package manager .
After install log out and choose the GUI you like to use .

Yeah - I found the 'Session Manager' at the login screen. It had lots of options, but none was Gnome. I even went to Synaptic, and searched gnome, and lots of installed packages came up, looking like it IS installed???

Thanks tho'...

Anyone?

From you're description it seems to me that a a lot of Gnome related packages are installed , but not GNOME as a GUI it self .
Try in the package manager to search with the search argument 1) desktop Gnome or 2)Gnome desktop or 3) pattern- Gnome or something like that .
And what are you using GDM OR KDM ?
