GDM in fedora 11 is not configurable.

KDM – KDE Display manger offers stunning interface with themes

To change to KDM

make a file in

/etc/sysconfig/

ie – must be root

[[email protected] etc]# vim /etc/sysconfig/desktop

DESKTOP=”GNOME”
DISPLAYMANAGER=”KDE”
put these lines in it .

Save

Logout

If not working Take look at

/etc/X11/prefdm

Have Fun —!

  1. This did not work for my Fedora 11 installation until I removed the quotes, i.e.:

    DESKTOP=GNOME
    DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE

    With the quotes, prefdm was not recognizing the KDE entry, it thought $DISPLAYMANAGER was empty, and defaulted back to gdm.
