[SOLVED] KDE4 and user session switching in Fedora

Greetings,

Now that KDE4 is stabilizing on Fedora, I'm gladly switching back. :-)

However, I have a an issue with switching users. When I try, the only thing that happens is the current user's sessions screen locks; that's it. Am I missing something?

TIA
Thomas

Look like a distribution problem, if you have no answer here, try a fedora forum or mailing list. I've tried both in kubuntu and opensuse and it works there.

User switching in kde requires use of kdm loginmanager. To ensure you're using kdm, either
rpm -e gdm
or
edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop (create this file if it doesn't already exist), to contain:
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"

And then reboot (or switch runlevels), simply restarting X isn't enough.
