SLES (aka SUSE 10.1) ships with KDE *and* GNOME. They give you a *choice* of UIs.

Did you not install it, or did you not choose it as your default UI?

Hi,

As PsiCops indicated you must have both KDE and GNOME is installed by default. To switch to KDE instead of Gnome all  you need to do is to logout. When you see the logon screen there's a field there for you to select which desktop you want to launch KDE or Gnome (and even text mode). When you select KDE you go straight with KDE but the default is GNOME.

If for some reason you dont have KDE installed:
- Launch YaST
- Select Install/Uninstall software
- Select Sections menu (the default is find)
- Check the box before KDE selections
- Complete installl
- Quit ( Menu -> Finish)
- Logout
- Checkt the field and slecet KDE Log back in

That's it.
Cheers,
K.
