DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #70 from Jeff <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The Debian-specific command:
update-alternatives --config x-window-manager
allows you to quickly CHANGE YOUR DEFAULT WINDOW MANAGER. You
might fiddle with "x-session-manager" settings instead, if it's
appropriate for your Debian setup.
Try "man update-alternatives" to see a list of some of the
other default settings you may alter with the command.
