Thread: Switchin between gnome and kde problems

  1. #1

    Default Switchin between gnome and kde problems

    When I log out from gnome , and log in to kde4 everything is ok, but switching back is a problem - after choosing gnome goes to kde again!
    It repeats several times , and then logs to gnome.Same on desktop and laptop,also with different WM.
    Why is this happening?Its verry annoyng!

    I've noticed this as well.. On my system after I log out of kde and go back to the login screen and change to gnome I'll get logged back into KDE.

    However to stop this from happening, all I have to do is enter my password and THEN change the WM.. It then lets me login to the desired system. If I change the WM *before* entering my password I'll always get dumped back into whatever I used last.

    And no, I have no idea why this happens

    Hope this is of help..

    Had the same the other way round, i.e. Gnome reluctant to make way for KDE. Eventually settled down though.
