    That is a common problem when installing gnome on slackware. The DLG site has instructions to fix I believe.

    He is a link :LinuxPackages :: View topic - Freerock Gnome and KDE coexistance
    is not only me how have this problem, but in any case My gnome works well, i don't care two much about this problem but just i want to understand why that happen, i believe the gdm change some setting in the xinitrc.kde or semething becuase i tried to delete KDE and reinstall it again the same problem, i already removed KDE and using only dropline gnome and XFCE .

    I have used both DLG and Freerock gnome. FRG is less intrusive although not always the latest desktop, but I havn't checked recently. FRG packages have been a good resource when running gnome apps independently on my standard slackware install.
