How do I change my desktop environment?

The default Desktop Environment on our Springdale Linux workstations is Gnome 3 Classic.  We also offer Gnome 3 Standard (Wayland) and Gnome 3 Standard (X11)

In order to switch desktop environments, at the login screen, enter your username.

From the login screen (GDM), click the gear button next to the Sign In button.

From the drop-down menu that appears, select the option that you prefer.

If you are interested in running a different desktop environment, such as KDE or XFCE, please contact to make the request.
