View Full Version : [ubuntu] gdm not running with gnome

October 5th, 2008, 12:45 AM
i recently upgraded (painlessly) to 8.04
then i installed kde 4.0
now when i start a gnome session, i can't switch sessions (system > Switch User)
I get an error box saying GDM is not running.
however i can't change it (System > administration > Login window) because GDM is not running.
Catch 22.
how do i reset the display manager to something that is computable with both gnome and kde4?

Also what config files (not menu options) control this process?
