View Full Version : [all variants] how to add another desktop enviroment to the sessions list

April 11th, 2010, 04:11 PM
So when i boot up my computer and get to the login screen, i can choose from 3 sessions. Gnome, xterm, and Failsafe gnome i think.
i was wondering how i can add LXDE or gnome-shell to this list without having to use --replace.

I think you can install lxde by using the command

sudo aptitude install lxde

you can switch over to the lxde by logging out and select lxde while logging in.
Well it does not replace Gnome provided you do not set lxde as default desktop.

Hope i've solved your problem
