How To Switch Between GNOME and KDE 4.5 On Ubuntu 10.04


A while ago I wrote an article about why you should consider giving Ubuntu a go. A few of you asked why I never mentioned Kubuntu, and some seemed convinced that KDE was the way to go. Well guess what? Here’s how you can have both.
Ubuntu uses the GNOME desktop environment straight out of the box, which provides a functional and fairly clean desktop with a few sexy effects from Compiz. Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop environment which has now comes with more bells and whistles than ever.
If you’re sitting there on your Ubuntu machine thinking “I fancy giving that a go” then you can. With a couple of commands and a restart, you’ll be using KDE in no time.
