This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

With GNOME and KDE installed on a Fedora 15 system, there should be a drop-down menu in your login window where you can select which display manager to use for the session.

If you want to set the default display manager, have a look at this solution.

In any case, your question's not really that precise, so what exactly do you want to do?

@KindOfAutomatic: I want to be able to choose KDE or GNOME at login. Your answer is good, thanks – fman Jun 18 '11 at 12:23

If you want to Change from KDE to Gnome, you have reboot. When the login screen comes you select the user from the list there in the bottom of the login screen you should see one drop down menu with the options KDE, GNOME.., you just select Gnome and enter the password, then you will login into Gnome session.
