I have messed up and can't fix it :oops: . I think I have changed the settings in the "desktop switcher" from gnome to twm for my regular user acount. When I log in as root everything is fine, if I log in to my user account all I get is a blue screen and a menu that pops up when I click the mouse. I am sure there is an easy way to swap back to gnome but I can't figure it out. If someone could tell me how to get back to the gnome desktop I would be greatful.

Thanks,

David

The easiest way is on the login screen you will get an option that allows you to use Gnome. Use that to login as your user with the Gnome interface.

Then go to Black Star > Preferences > More Peferences > Desktop Switching Tool and select Gnome.

After that you can log out and back in with Gnome as default.

Thanks Jason again, I've worked it out now. If I log out I get back to the login screen and can choose the session from there.
It's been one of those sort of days today :? I've proper got my thick head on.

Well once logged in you can press ctrl + alt +backspace to get back to the login screen. Not sure if that is still valid in Fedora or not.

Alternatively if you are fine on the commend line just edit the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file to say DESKTOP="GNOME"

You could just type switchdesk-gnome on the commend line also.
