You can add a file called .xinitrc to your home directory (the same path
where .bashrc is located). To choose the window/desktop manager to use
startup, you add a line to the file:

For gnome:
exec gnome-session

For Enlightenment:
exec enlightenment

For KDE:
exec startkde


This change will not affect other users on your system.
