Hi,

May I know how do I launch KDE desktop environment from the
terminal/command line of a regular user?
Is it "exec startkde"? If not, please advise.

I am currently using the GNOME desktop environment and I launch it by
executing "startx" on the command line. I want GNOME to be my default
desktop environment but launch KDE desktop environment whenever necessary.

How do I go about launching KDE from the command line manually?
I think this should work

startx -- /usr/bin/startkde

Cheers,
Kevin

Dear Kevin,

Do you mean that I can run /usr/bin/startkde on the command line directly?

Thank you very much.
