Shortcuts[edit]

Quitting KDE (without restarting your computer)[edit]

You can log out and log back in with a different session

Also, to Quit the KDE Display Manager

Use the following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop

To restart kdm, enter:

sudo /etc/init.d/kdm restart

or, if you have currently stopped kdm:

sudo kdm

You can also run the "GNOME Display Manager" (gdm) or the "X Display Manager" (xdm) with

sudo gdm

and

sudo xdm

(while no other display managers are running)

Note: The code "sudo /etc/init.d/" can be used with "kdm", "gdm", or "xdm", and is followed most commonly with "start", "stop", or "restart".
