    Default XFCE, KDE, etc

    Is there any way to change from KDE 4.2.4 to some other desktop at booting time?
    I know there was a key that needed to be presses, cant remember which.


    PD: I wanna experiment with XFCE a bit.


    Thanks

    BTW, could need some help installing XFCE through repos.
    Thanks

    If you want a more faster, you can also try LXDE there is a thread in the tech news section for information.

    Sure it will. It's lighter, I installed it on my daughters p4 1.7/1gbram and more quicker than xfce. Only thing is she was used to using xfce so kinda hard to convince to switch to LXDE, but the option is there so whenever she decide to use it, it is ready.
