Thread: Howto change desktop

    Default Howto change desktop


    I'd like to have KDE and Gnome installed and choose between the two when opening a session, with the same user if possible, else for the next session of the current user.

    Is it possible? How ?

    Thanks in advance

    install it via YaST - software management,select patterns from the drop-down menu & then select the desktop environment you require. once installed, log out & select a different DE from the sessions menu

    Thank you for this. I installed KDE environments (base + Desktop, versions 3 + 4 !!!, disks are so cheap now ! ;-). When I logout , I get no choice of environment at the login-form.

    I missed something !! sure !!

    but what ? any configuration of this choice, where ? some file to edit ?

    Thanks for your help

    Look carefully, that session selection menu is sometimes hard to spot.

    You were perfectly right !!! ( shame on me !!!!)

    (the menu appears only after the choice of the login name)

    Quite sincere thanks to you !
