    How to change from KDM to GDM?


    Hi people , well i just add three users to my Desktop Linux ,and i am the administrator of my brother ,and my two cousins and that's great.

    But to have a full great OS i installed KDE 4.0 in Ubuntu 8.04 and at the configuration i didn't know and i choose KDM to be my default but i want badly to be GDM my default cause i am really used to it , the SWITCH USER option work much better there so can anyone tell me how to do that ? I tried from GNOME but it stopped me saying that it was not running GDM . I tried from KDE ,but i cannot find how to do it .

    Please help!

    Okay i found my way around Switch user in KDE to work perfect ,but tell me anyway how to change , i like learning
    I have had a 360 ,but it got the RROD
    No more XBOX, i turned PS3
    I had it for months ,it still amazes me!

    Never seen a bigger failure of MICROSOFT then the XBOX 360!

    Execute this
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure kdm
    Select kdm in the list.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I used this command to get this error
    Package `kdm' is not installed and no info is available.
    Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
    and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
    /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: kdm is not installed
    kejdi@kejdi-desktop:~$
    then i followed the same command with GDM instead of KDm and i selected it from the list.

    Many thanks man.
