What are you trying to do with kwin? I don't understand the problem.
The main problem is, that I only had the choice between xdm and gdm. And I
think I want to use kwm, because I think it is the [xyz] manager which is
responsible for the login process.
But, as I looked for kwm (apt-cache), I did not find it, but I found kwin, so
I thought... anyway.
Excuse me, I come from Suse, but I am willing to learn, thats why I'm here.
Mmmh... ok, lets say: I want to have the same environment as before, means, I
want to use the stuff from kde, not from gnome. And thats what I am missing
in the installer.
"apt-get install kde kdm"
If kdm is already installed, then do "dpkg-reconfigure kdm".
Select "kdm" as your default display manager. (If it doesn't take, try
again, select one of the other managers, then repeat the process a final
time and select kdm.)
If kdm doesn't start, either reboot or "/etc/init.d/kdm start", then at
the login screen make sure KDE is your window manager before logging in.
