switchdesk has the missing functionality

Hi cfzeitler,

Do you still have the problem? If yes, can you provide to us the content of
your's /etc/sysconfig/desktop ?

I solved the problem of making KDE the default by adding a .dmrc file to the
home directory of the user:

[Desktop]
Session=kde

I also do not have an /etc/sysconfig/desktop file
