One of my main questions now is how to log in on the console, which I
prefer to using *dm, and start different window managers from there.
In SUSE it goes like this:

    startx <windowmanager>

but in Debian this does not work.

I have no ~/.xinitrc, and when I type "startx," the default Gnome desktop comes up.

You can type "startx /usr/bin/gnome-session" to get Gnome.

If you want KDE, you can do this: "startx /usr/bin/startkde"
