I installed the KDE bersion of Fedora 10 using the livecd (x86-64). I then install the GNOME desktop using

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
Now I get a different login screen. How do I get back the old KDE login screen?

After installing Gnome it is now using the Gnome display manger (GDM) and you want KDM. Make a file with this inside:

DESKTOP="KDE"
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"

Name the file desktop and put it in /etc/sysconfig. When you reboot you should have the KDE login back.

You can edit:
/etc/sysconfig/desktop
and add:
DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE

It will change it to kdm. Then you can configure kdm in Kde's Control Center > System Admin > Login Manager

The /etc/sysconfig/desktop file on my computer already has DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE set, but I am still getting the GNOME login screen.

You must re-start X11 or re-boot the PC to apply such a change.

Thanks, I'm getting the right login screen now.
