I am a newbie to Solaris/UNIX.   I just installed Solaris 10 and accidentally chose CDE as my desktop instead of Java.   How can I set Java Desktop as my desktop?

omarfarid is right, but one thing that I've run into in the past is that if you are logging in with a password you should wait until after you are prompted for the password to change it.  

Because different people can set their own environment, I've run unto situations where I change the desktop type, enter my user ID, and Solaris then loaded up my old setting as the default when it when to the password screen.  By waiting until you're prompted for your password to change your desktop setting, you should be able to avoid this hiccup.

From login screen click on session and chose a session "Java Desktop system" press Ok

Once you enter user name and passwd it ll prompt 2 options.

1. Just for this session
2. Make default.

Chose what ever you need.

that's all
