How to change your default desktop session










  • Method 1:
    • edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, change user-session to the session you want.
      To list the available session names:
      • cat /usr/share/xsessions/* | grep 'session=' | awk '{print $2}' | sed "s/--session=//g"
  • Method 2:
    • Set gnome-shell as default:
      sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
      sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-shell
      
    • Set gnome classic as default:
      sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
      sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-classic
      
    • Set unity as default:
      sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s ubuntu
