KDE no longer supported in Artistx after upgrading to 9.?
After upgrading to Ubuntu, GUI's sessions no longer support KDE desktop, but only Gnome desktop w/o option to switch?

Add an entry by hand if you want, its just a 4 line text file with .desktop extension. But look if kde is installed first.

Thanks, not sure how that works, but both Gnome and KDE are GUI's in the Artistx distro, with the splash screen giving you log in preference with a Gnome or a KDE desktop. Now that I updated Artistx with Ubuntu 9.1, the option is no longer there on the splash screen.
I don't know what those cmd lines are that you're talking about. Still a newbie, but for one year I've been using Artistx and it's really great.

if they dropped KDE, it's their choice and you can't do much about it, but KDE is available in the Ubuntu repository. Kubuntu is not the best KDE distribution, it have the reputation to be buggy and unsupported, but if you want to keep your current instalation:


sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
