Thread: How to get back to KDE after switching to openbox?

  1. #1

    Default How to get back to KDE after switching to openbox?

    I like to explore, but it seems this time I have gone too far. I tried using vi to edit /etc/sysconfig.d/windowmanager but no changes seems to do anything. Any ideas, before I re-install? Thanks in advance..

    So how did you change to openbox?
    Usually you can choose which WM to use if you log on at KDM using the "session" button in the lower left corner.
    If you have autologin enabled, just disable autologin then log out, choose KDE and log back in.

    Not sure where I got it, but it is an OpenSuse issue.

    rpm -qa openbox
    openbox-3.4.11-10.2.i586

    I will try to use rpm to fix it up.. this is what happened.

    rpm -e openbox
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libobparser.so.21 is needed by (installed) obconf-2.0.3-18.4.i586
    libobrender.so.21 is needed by (installed) obconf-2.0.3-18.4.i586
    openbox is needed by (installed) obconf-2.0.3-18.4.i586

    any ideas?

    I am starting to understand what happened. I am installing LXDE desktop, and I have only parts of it operating.. I will figure it out. What i want in the end is to jump around with different desktop experiences and not get stuck in one. There should be a script to allow an easy desktop switch - even in LXDE.
