    Users and DE's

    I would just like to know if it is possible to set up a user that uses a different De automatically. Like say, User bob automatically boots into Gnome, and User bob2 automatically logs into KDE, all without having to keep swapping it in sessions prior to logging in.

    This would be tremendously useful, as it would eliminate having to remember to switch sessions when I switch users.

    Thanks!

    Yes, I found that info for someone else here a little while ago, let me look for it...

    Ah, here it is.
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    It should remember which user logged into which environment automatically...

    Every time you choose a different session, it should ask you whether you want to use it as default
