Does anyone know how to switch to gnome from kde within the terminal? It's a media center so I rigged it to never go to the login screen on startup and I've forgotten how I did that (not the usual way) so I can't switch desktop environments now. I have mate, gnome and kde installed but it always boots to kde.

Try this command:

qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 0 0 0

That just gave me a blank screen, so I uninstalled all the kde components, hoping it would be forced to boot to the display manager, it didn't, took me to the same blank screen as when I log out.

So I ctlr+alt+f1 to boot to the shell, installed gdm (it removed my other dm), and then I could access a display manager again to boot to gnome. Works perfectly now.

Hope this new version gets a debian release soon.

try with update-alternatives there is an entry about session manager, set it to gdm. it was very long ago last time i did this, it may not work anymore. or maybe configure lightdm from its cli command but i haven't touch that before.
