Description William A. Mahaffey III 2010-06-13 15:42:28 UTC
Description of problem: I used switchdesk as a regular user from the Gnome desktop menu & from the command line to change my desktop to Xfce. I logout & back in (to restart the X server) & I still have Gnome desktop, w/ gnome-session presiding, etc. If I reinvoke switchdesk, it shows Xfce checked as the option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):switchdesk.4.0.9-4.fc11.1.noarch

How reproducible:try it yourself ....

Steps to Reproduce:
1.invoke switchdesk, choose Xfce as new default desktop
2.logout & back in to restart X server
3.see what desktop you are in ....
Actual results:logs me back in under Gnome

Expected results:log me in under XFCE

Additional info:I have *EVERYTHING* XFCE installed (x86_64 & noarch) ....

Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
