When I installed Fedora 9, I deliberately installed both the KDE and Gnome desktops, expecting that I would experiment with the KDE desktop.
According to fedora documentation, you can switch between the desktops using the "switchdesk" command. There is a command line and a GUI version of this application. According to the documentation, you can use this command to cause the desktop to use KDE by either doing a switchdesk KDE on the command line or selecting KDE in the GUI.
The documentation is inaccurate. Neither of these methods work.
The GUI version actually tels you that you have successfully switched desktops, and it says you need to restart the X server in order to see the KDE desktop. When I restart the X server, I still get the Gnome desktop.
The command line just says that the desktop is set up to use KDE. Regardless of what it says, restarting the server does not yield the KDE at all.
It gets better. Some documentation refers to applications/menu items in Gmome that allow you to select desktops. None of these show up in Gnome at all.
So: has desktop switching functionality been removed from Fedora??? Is the only way to use KDE to put it on exclusively during installation?
Or have I found a bug???
If not, then how do I switch desktops so that I can compare the various ones that are available???
