Hi All,

I just downloaded and installed Leap Build 0222, and even though I
selected KDE as my DE in the installer, I was given IceWM as my
default login DE when I first boot in. For me it was obvious what
the issue was but this may be confusing for some new users who are
not familiar with multiple DE's on their system.

Is this intentional or could it be "fixed"?

openQA installed KDE just fine, so I guess you did something
that caused this - and very likely it's a bug then, but for
that we need to know what you did that openQA didn't.

If Uzair did something wrong, then so did I with Beta-1, several times
and on three different machines. I may be mistaken, Stephan, but your
comment suggests that you may not have fully understood what Uzair
wrote. KDE is installed correctly but is not the default login DE.
"Plasma5" (or "KDE Plasma" - what's the difference?) can be selected at
login but I missed it every time. Once "Plasma5" has been selected,
that becomes the default as you'd expect.
