    Logout from your Gnome session and pick the KDE one in the options. Restart and see if KDE is used or not, if not, you have to specify your default WM somewhere. Don't ask me where exactly though... Which login manager are you using?
    Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.

    To change your default window manager in slack 10.1 use:


    at the command line. You will then be able to pick from the ones you have installed.

    Also, for future reference:

    Is a handy manual to be familiar with. Lots of good stuff in there, including xwmconfig.
