Thread: Post-Installation

  1. #41

    Default Re: Post-Installation

    The problem here is with using GDM (gnome-display-manager) which currently lacks this feature, merely installing KDE will not do. You have to open yast -> System -> /etc/sysconfig Editor -> Desktop (left pane) -> Display manager -> Displaymanager (ie the first option) and now there is a text box with a drop down arrow on the right. Click on it and in the menu that appears select kdm4 or kdm. Now restart (merely logging out will not do). From now on you should have the required feature (however you will still not have it while logged in to gnome but you can log out and select to boot a chosen OS from there).

    Seems to me if one wishes to do this quicker, its much easier just to put a custom icon on the Gnome desktop.

    Had forgotten about holding down the mouse button on 'Restart', although I seldom reboot to windows... However, I did know the option to choose the OS to restart is located in K Menu 'restart' options (as explained several posts back).
