    I think I have added kubuntu to ubuntu - not sure

    I think I have added kubuntu desktop to ubuntu. I am not sure. When I reboot it says its kbuntu. Settings/details just says ubuntu. Here is a couple command results:
    Code:
    greg@movies:~$ ls /usr/bin/*session
    /usr/bin/dbus-run-session  /usr/bin/gnome-session-custom-session
    /usr/bin/gnome-session
    greg@movies:~$ ls -l /usr/share/xsessions/
    total 24
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7625 Mar 19  2018 gnome-classic.desktop
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  138 Nov  4  2012 kodi.desktop
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2353 Oct  4  2018 plasma.desktop
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  323 May  2  2018 ubuntu-communitheme-snap.desktop
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  247 May  2  2018 ubuntu.desktop
    greg@movies:~$
    I am trying to change the fonts in Krusader - menu bar, toolbars, etc. I have done the kde system settings font changes which changed nothing I could see. As far as I can tell I am using the plasma.desktop, but not sure.

    Thank you.........

    Before you login, click on the "gear", select the DE you want, then login.
    I would do this under a completely new userid to avoid conflicting config files from causing bad things to happen. Run like that using a different userid for a few days to be certain all is working. You can access all the gnome apps or kde apps from either DE.

    BTW, whenever posting command output, please use 'code tags' so that the output lines up like it does in the terminal. This is in the AdvReply or Advance edit button.

    Thank you for the reply. I keep forgetting the code tag thing and apologize. I will try to do better!

    All that being said does anybody know how I can get control of the fonts for menu bars, tool bars, etc?

    ????>>'System Settings'
    Click on the 'Appearance' icon, or press Tab to enter the main window, and then use the arrow keys to navigate to 'Appearance' and then press Enter.

    In the window that opens, click on the 'Fonts' icon, or press Tab until the pane on the left is highlighted, then use the down arrow key to move to 'Fonts'

    Thank you for the responses.

    I have uploaded 2 files. The first is my Krusader screen and the second is the fonts screen from system settings. I have found that no matter how I set the size it makes no difference. I suspect I am in the wrong system settings.

    Thoughts?

    Yep wrong place, you can or "should" be able to call it directly from the terminal:
    Code:
    systemsettings5 &

    Thank for for the reply.

    I did as suggested - it took me right back to the wrong one. I did it in a terminal and got:

    Ha the old multiple DE syndrome eh? Ya that is sometimes problem-matic, I always try to warn users of more than one DE environment installed to be prepared to roll-up their sleeves, and prepare to tinker with the settings and configs etc.
    Things just try to grab other stuff related to other DE settings.
    I'm not sure how to advise you further, with out knowing how you installed KDE, ie: command used or all you installed by hand.
    And sometimes the changes when made in Gnome will carry to the KDE (Plasma) session. Like Fonts. Give it a try if have not already.

    Anyway, to install kbuntu I used https://vitux.com/how-to-install-the...ntu-18-04-lts/

    That one also took quite a long time to complete...........

    Re: I think I have added kubuntu to ubuntu - not sure

    Did you use thisGosh I hope not)
    Code:
    sudo apt install sddm
    And if you did, only if you did re-run:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure sddm
    and choose "gdm3" it's the less worse of two evils here. LOL
    NOTE:
    A display manager is the component of your Operating system responsible for launching your display server and the login session. This is the reason it is sometimes called the login manager. The layout of the screen that you see while entering your username and password(the greeter), your login session and user authorization are some of the tasks that the display manager performs. A few common types of default display managers are gdm, gdm3, lightdm, kdm, and sddm, etc.
