I've installed Qubes-OS 4.0.1 and it's XFCE desktop environment but I

is available. I was wondering, is there a way I can use my preferred
desktop environment? Or, I have to wait for GNOME until migration is not
fully completed because it seems currently there is no support for KDE.

KDE does have support AFAIK, although its no long the default. If you
can get used to the blank-space network icon, then I recommend KDE as
there are many pluses.

I don't believe Qubes is actually going to migrate to Gnome. There was
an aborted attempt and Gnome 3's paradigm (tablet touch UI, melded
WM/app widgets) doesn't seem compatible with Qubes' concept.


suppose one follow these instructions but does *not want to use  sddm nor
change any windows management settings

on reboot

one is logged into XFCE  then,  in dom0  can type


or startkde --replace xfce  ?

but this seems to  result in 2 taskbars running

what would be the way to  choose the DM on login  or to startkde  and close
xfce   or is that possible ?

At the login screen, there's a drop dowm menu allowing you to choose
which DM to apply, no?

ah OK it was up in the corner bar , not in the login area , hadn't notice :)
