    What does this mean??

    I went to RH button-->Extras-->Preferences--> Desktop Switching Tool and then i clicked on KDE and i get the following message.

    Your desktop configuration has successfully been updated, but you must restart the X Window System for the chages to take affect.

    What does that mean and how do i restart X every time i want to change it?? Please reply back. Thanks guys.

    Ctrl + Alt + Backspace will restart X from login screen.

    Derek,

    That just changes your desktop environment. It requires you to log off then back on simply because it isn't a simple theme switch. Several services need to be started by kde that can't be done without you logging off. Just log off and then back on again...two or three minutes, tops.

    Cheers

    The Red Hat button won't change. Red Hat mae a hack to create a consistent look on all windows managers. Even though you'd be using KDE, you would not see the regular K on the menu, just the Red Fedora.
