I have installed Enlightenment

How do I run it, it seems in my gdm the only options I have are kde and gnome, or am I all wrong, kde and gnome are desktops, Enlightenment is a window manager, how do I select a window manager? will it work in either kde or gnome?

Search LinuxQuestions (search button above) because I know there is a lot of information on getting gdm to load blackbox. It's basically the same process, except the window manager names are different.

Good Luck
