I apologize if this is the wrong forum or, if the question has been answered and I just can not find it.
It took several tries to get the 13.2 version to install, and on the successful attempt, I installed KDE. (I had tried to select the Gnome desktop on earlier install attempts.)
I would really like to use Gnome, at least for awhile, so I want to install Gnome also. I went to YAST and software and patterns and selected and installed Gnome (I think).
On a complete reboot, I expected to be asked which desktop to use, Gnome or KDE.
I do not get that choice, but just the login screen which then goes straight to KDE.
I have done this on a previous version of openSUSE but I seem to have forgotten how.
I’d appreciate it if someone will direct me or provide me with instructions for installing Gnome.
Could be driver related like graphics.
I just installed gnome for the first time
I have xfce as my main DE with a minimal kde installation.
I just added gnome last night by installing the gnome session and
gdm it pick-up the needed packages and was able to have it working.
Oh, I got some pointers from malcolmlewis in my post this morning and
added gnome tweak tool because it was not pickup when I installed gnome.
Maybe you’re wondering I did not install base from the patterns.
The reason is I want it to be light as possible and I am mixing apps from different DE’s.
Well, that was simple, Thanks. Guess I had a ‘senior moment’. Works fine now.
On the several failed installs, I did verify the install DVD was good, no errors
I remember on one of the tries, selecting Gnome, after installation, on reboot it just stopped with a black screen.
I tried recovery, but do not really know how to use that system and lazy, so started from a fresh install again.
I think it was third or fourth try it just worked. Only difference was selecting KDE as the default desktop. I use the custom partitioning to put /home on a separate disk. Nothing very fancy.
