I’m trying to use GDM, X11, and KDE-Plasma to setup my environment, via kickstart.
The reason why I want to do this via kickstart, and not via the UI/in a ~/.* file is because many users will be using the machine and I’d like to set a system wide default without having to go through the GUI.
I’m installing the package groups:
%packages @base @core @fonts @Internet Browser #firefox @system-tools @KDE Plasma Workspaces @base-x @network-file-system-client #autofs, samba, etc. @print-client gdm
I’m using xconfig command during kickstart
xconfig --startxonboot --defaultdesktop KDE to no avail. Gnome-Standard still starts upon user login. I’ve also tried setting this to
plasma in hopes that it picks up the file located in
/usr.shares.xessions/plasma.desktop but that did not appear to have an effect.
I’ve also tried removed all options from
/usr/share/xsessions/ except for the KDE option, but that also did not work
I’ve tried the solution mentioned in Redhat’s KB, How to configure default desktop session in RHEL7 ? - Red Hat Customer Portal which didn’t appear to do anything other than adding an additional DE option in the cog menu on the login UI.
