Re: choose the default display manager

But when I set the DM to kdm in /etc/X11/default-display-manager I get a totally different *window* manager, i. e. I get XFCE4 instead of KDE. That's even stranger as I thought that kdm would start kde. But it obviously doesn't. In this case at least only kdm is started and not wdm.

So how could I set which window manager is started by the DM?

That's easier (I think): controlled by update-alternatives.

# update-alternatives --list x-window-manager

shows you what it can be, and

# update-alternatives --set x-window-manager <path>

where <path> is one of the options from the first command.
