I can't remember if this is a feature or a bug, but gdm-2.0beta2-23 still
forgets the last session choice made and defaults to GNOME.

In other words, user jojo chooses a KDE session, logs in, then logs out.
When jojo logs in again without choosing a session, GNOME starts by
default. I assume KDE should start since jojo's default should equal his
last selected session?

Havoc, is this supposed to be the case? Or is this ability not implemented (and
won't be?)
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2000-02-17 11:47:59 EST
We decided that changing the default was potentially too drastic/confusing to
users, so to actually change it permanently you have to run the 'switchdesk'
tool - on the GNOME foot menu, choose System->Desktop Switching Tool.
