2.7. Switching Desktops
Switching desktops refers to switching
between GNOME and KDE. There are slight differences in the look
and feel of these two graphical desktops. Choose the desktop
that best suits your preferences.
There are two ways to switch desktops. You can either switch
for a single session or use the Desktop
Switching Tool to change your default desktop.
To login with a different desktop for a single session:
Select Session from the menu at the
bottom left of the login screen. A window appears with a
list of several different desktop environments.
Choose one, and select OK.
Enter your login and password as usual. A dialog box
appears, warning you that this change is for the current
Click OK to continue.
To change the default desktop for your system:
From the menu, select
Select from the list of available desktops and click
OK. A dialog box opens
confirming that the changes were successful.
In order for the changes to take place, you must
restart your X Window System. The easiest way to accomplish
this is to log out of X and log back in. Log out of the
graphical desktop, then log back in.
