NAME

       switchdesk  -  graphical  and  text mode interface for choosing desktop
       environment


SYNOPSIS

       switchdesk [desktop name]


DESCRIPTION

       switchdesk provides a simple method of  choosing  between  the  various
       desktop  environments  available  under Red Hat Linux, including GNOME,
       KDE, and FVWM2.  If X Windows is running, switchdesk will  bring  up  a
       dialog  box which allows the user to choose between the available desk-
       tops installed on the system.  This dialog follows  the  appearance  of
       the  user’s  current  desktop as closely as possible. If a desktop name
       (KDE, GNOME, XFce4, FVWM, WINDOWMAKER) is supplied as an argument, or X
       is not running, switchdesk can be used from the command line.



RETURN CODES

       switchdesk returns 0 on success, 1 on error.



FILES

       ~/.Xclients, ~/.Xclients-default
                           Stores the currently selected desktop.
