Is there a way to tell which Desktop Environment is currently running?
The situation is that I want to know the answer from time to time for a remote machine. I can easily send the data by network to where I am once it is unearthed. But I can’t look into the screen on the remote and see for myself. So where would that information be stored/available on the remote machine.
Thanks for the reply. I am currently playing with:
ps -ef | egrep “several key phrases”
I will have to wait until I have a stable KDE4 installation to finish the analysis. ATM my KDE4 is all over the place. But your method is clearly sound.
OK I have a stable installation of openSUSE 11.1 at last. So I tried
this CLI entry and it seems to differentiate the various Window
ps -eLf | egrep
Thanks for the tip.
