Changing the default login screen to KDE
I'm running Mandriva Linux 2007 with the KDE desktop environment.
I go to KDE>System Administration>Login Manager and make changes, but those changes are not reflected upon reboot. I may be using a different login manager.
/etc/sysconfig/desktop (text file) says "DISPLAYMANAGER=XDM" and I tried changing it to KDE, but nothing changed.
I need help finding out where to look to discover what login manager I'm using and also how to change it to the KDE manager. Right now the login manager it BARE except for two dialog boxes, seriously. Nothing else, not even the icon I picked on install. I believe it should instead look similar to this:
Any help is appreciated!

The login manager in /etc/sysconfig/desktop should be KDM and not KDE.

Mandriva 2007 doesn't install all packages of KDE by default. changing XDM to KDM wont work coz its not installed. install all KDE packages from installation CD/DVD through Control Center ( Configure Computer?... uhhh whats exact entry in Menu? )
