How to login into KDE when in XFCE login screen?

Hi, I’ve installed XFCE as a default desktop environment, but now decided to try KDE, but at the login screen I can only input my username and password, and cant login to KDE as I used to when I booted using gdm(for example), I’ve installed kdm, now how do I get it to work when I logout from XFCE?

When you log into openSUSE, and you can not have selected auto login, down in the bottom left of the login screen, there is something called SESSION. Select it with your mouse and you will find a bullet to select for the loaded desktops on your system and KDE should be there to select. After you pick it, then login as normal, to KDE.

Thank You,

The login manager is independent of the desktop you use. Change:

DISPLAYMANAGER=“gdm”

to whatever you like in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager.
