Installing Gnome on Kubuntu

Kubuntu’s default desktop environment is KDE. Sometimes people using Kubuntu want to try out Gnome as well. I need to install my kubuntu Box

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Wait for the packages to download
During the installation process, you should be asked whether you want to use KDM or GDM as your default display manager

my choice on GDM 😉

The default can always be changed later by modifying the /etc/X11/default-display-manager file. For KDM, the file should read /usr/bin/kdm; for GDM, the file should read /usr/sbin/gdm

After completion go ahead and login and
Enjoy !!!
