It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

Any particular distro? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 8 '11 at 12:27
You'll have to provide at least the following information: Which distribution do you use (see above), which version of it, do you want to continue using your KDE tools or is this question also about uninstalling KDE, and what KDE functionality / data do you still need after the migration. – jstarek Feb 8 '11 at 15:26

Assuming that your previous question indicates that you're on Fedora, then install and use system-switch-displaymanager to switch to GDM (installing it first if it hasn't already been), then just choose LXDE from the menu upon boot.

You will have to install lxde via the following command: yum install @lxde-desktop – Katerberg Feb 8 '11 at 16:25
Good point; I assumed from the question that he had already installed it, but on reflection, that's not obvious. – farfromhome Feb 8 '11 at 17:19

System > Administration > Login Screen and choose from LXDE/GNOME/...

(default is Ubuntu Desktop Edition)

If that means that you've answered your own question, you might as well select yours as the correct one so people know that it has been solved. – farfromhome Feb 8 '11 at 20:14
