    How to change from KDE to Gnome (newbie question)

    Hello,

    I was wondering how i can change my desktop... When i do
    Code:
    startx
    i get KDE, but i wanted Gnome! I'm using SuSE 9.1.

    I searched google and found that I have to do
    Code:
    switchdesk
    , but it says that the command is not found. I tryed
    Code:
    apt-get install switchdesk
    witch resulted in
    Code:
    package not found
    Also searched the YaST online update, but found nothing.
    So what is the way of doing this?

    Thanks in advance...

    For GNOME you might want to consider a distro that doesn't totally wreck GNOME - something like Fedora or Ubuntu works nicely.

    YaST ought to be able to do that. Plus if you select from GDM or KDM a different desktop and save that as the new default for that user, you should have that new one saved as the one startx starts up.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all the replies,
    but when I log in, i havn't got a graphical interface,
    or is the selector in the console?
