KDE and Gnome are no window managers. They are session managers. You
need to run
update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
startx first tries to run x-session-manager, and if that fails
x-window-manager. You can set the window manager gnome should use from
the control center. x-window-manager has nothing to do with that.
