Thread: Gnome - KDE

  1. Gnome - KDE

    Recently installed CentOS, the install defaulted to the Gnome GUI so i
    installed switchdesk to change to KDE. Have since tried removing
    switchdesk and using the session change at login to select KDE. The
    graphical login seems to be the Gnome one as changes to KDE Control
    Center -> System Administration -> Login Manager, have no effect and
    configuration via GDM works.

    How do i change the system to use KDM?

    Solved by putting DISPLAYMANAGER=kdm in /etc/sysconfig/desktop.

    Small catch, now the computer doesn't switch off when it's shut down.

    Reported as a bug.
    Work arond: Edit /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
    change: HaltCmd=/sbin/halt
    to: HaltCmd=/usr/bin/poweroff (or where ever your poweroff command is)
