    Default Cannot boot to KDE4 when KDE+Gnome both installed

    Hi

    I've been experimenting. First I installed openSUSE 11.1 Gnome desktop. It went well. Then I used Yast Software Management --> Patterns --> to add the KDE4 desktop. But I can't figure out how to start KDE4 instead of Gnome when I boot the computer. I'm used to having a choice on the login page via a link low on the page. But that doesn't present now. So how do I get into KDE instead of Gnome?

    Thanks

    All I can think of...Which display manager are you using? Maybe try changing to kdm4 via yast /etc/sysconfig editor.

    That works a treat. Set the Desktop Display Manager to kde4. Then the options link appears on the KDM login page. -- thanks.
