Switching to gdm

Switching to KDM

If you’re switching to KDE you may want to switch to the KDE login manager (or display manager) KDM too.
Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and set DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"
Or use YaST /etc/sysconfig/ Editor, and select KDM under Desktop -> Display manager -> DISPLAYMANAGER


use this ? :X

  • : Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and set DISPLAYMANAGER="* gdm" ???/:question:

As root edit: /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager

And change




Then run: rcxdm restart

Yes, that works. But …

first make sure that “gdm” is actually installed.

Then edit the indicated file. The variable is likely set to “kdm” so that’s a one-letter change.

You will get “gdm” on reboot. Or, if you want to hurry it up, you could do:

# telinit 3
# telinit 5

I suggest a several second pause between those. The first shuts down the desktop. The second restarts it.

thanks Miuku & nrickert :slight_smile:
