    Installed and can't find

    Hi all!

    I just reinstalled Ubuntu Raring Ringtail and downloaded/installed (I think) KDE. I used Synaptic (the software center is just weird). After choosing the KDE package in Synaptic, I logged out to the sign-in screen. I expected to find an option to choose the desktop to boot up in, but no options present (apparently).

    This is a dual-boot machine with Win 8.1 and Ubuntu on an HP All-In-One box. Had this running a few months ago with XFCE. Had a major crash and lost the drive.

    Everything is working fine, except the problem as stated above.

    I know the answer is a simple one, but my linux is very rusty... Thanks in advance! All help is appreciated...

    I doubt you'll be able to do much with Raring since it's already reached EOL:

    Even Saucy has only one month of life left so it would probably be best to just install Kubuntu Trusty if you want KDE

    But don't trust the automated install options due to this bug:

    I did an upgrade via live DVD from Precise to Trusty on a dual boot with XP and the installer gobbled up XP
