    Default Booting into iceWM instead of KDE

    New install of 12.2 x86 (1 week old) and did some updates to yast,grub,udev, in the process it did do a intrid update. Now when I boot it goes to the iceWM vice KDE desktop. How do I get back to KDE ?

    likely non needed ifo:
    ASUS x401A-1 laptop
    preinstalled Win 8
    installed Ubuntu and openSuse via usb mbr, grub stick.
    Was useing a usb stick with mbr grub x86_64--efi to boot into Ubuntu and openSuse with no problems.
    enabled efi booting via Ubuntu before suse updates and problem.

    thanks for any help.

    It remembers the last desktop you used. Simply log out, and log in again
    choosing kde.

    I have never seen iceWM before, and if I log out it takes me to a terminal screen. All I know how to do there is reboot. I never did log out of KDE, alwas shutdown or reboot.

    If from the terninal screen, I can log into KDE, need to have the commands ,just know if I try 'startx' it pops up errors.

    thanks.

    What do you mean with this?

    BTW, the system does not boot in a desktop. The system boots and then you, or someone else, logs in into a desktop. An automatic login is also a login (as the expression clealty means).

    Could he be in a failsafe mode? Because when he exits he gets into the
    terminal, not kdm... Then KDE would be broken.

    Couple of questions:
    - Videocard?
    - What happens if you login to the console with username and password, then do
    Code:
    su -c 'rckdm restart'

    I do not know. Do you understand what "a intrid update" is?

    I read it as a package update that triggers the making of a new initrd. If you watch an update going that shows up when mkinitrd is ran during package install.

    Aha, could true. But the whole "I did some uodates ...." is a bit of a riddle to me. Why those "some updates" and not others. A rather undescriptive way of trying to convey a message to us
