I installed mdk 9.2 with all desktops. How do I change from kde to something else?

Are you in console mode or graphic mode?

For the graphical mode: When you are at the login screen, go under "Session" and select a desktop you want to use.

For console mode (starting GNOME) try this command: /usr/bin/gnome-session

I'm not too sure how to start other desktop environments other then GNOME in console though.
