man  switchdesk


switchdesk - graphical and text mode interface for choosing desktop

      switchdesk [desktop name]

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�� 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.

      switchdesk returns 0 on success, 1 on error.

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