Using KDE/Tips and Tricks


Quitting KDE (without restarting your computer)Edit

You can log out and log back in with a different session

Also, to Quit the KDE Display Manager

Use the following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop

To restart kdm, enter:

sudo /etc/init.d/kdm restart

or, if you have currently stopped kdm:

sudo kdm

You can also run the "GNOME Display Manager" (gdm) or the "X Display Manager" (xdm) with

sudo gdm


sudo xdm

(while no other display managers are running)

Note: The code "sudo /etc/init.d/" can be used with "kdm", "gdm", or "xdm", and is followed most commonly with "start", "stop", or "restart".
