Yes, I get the graphical login screen. I wasn't sure if that was
using X or some lower level graphics subsystem (if there is such a
thing on a Unix system).
I have Kubuntu as my default login manager. From that login screen I
can choose to start Gnome or KDE. Should I try changing the login
manager to Gnome? If so, how do I do it (in a text console)?
