View Full Version : [ubuntu] Switching between desktop environments without logging out

March 21st, 2011, 11:04 AM
I have both xmonad and Gnome installed and tend to switch between them quite often. Normally, I need to log out and log back in which is starting to become annoying because I need to open any running applications again.

I have tried using "Switch User", but it doesn't work. I go to the switching screen when I am logged into Gnome and log in again after selecting Xmonad, but it brings me back to my Gnome session.

So is there any way to log in as the same user with two different desktop environments at the same time?

I may be wrong,but I donīt believe so.
