1 Answer 1

1) Edit your ~/.dmrc file

nano ~/.dmrc

It should look something like the example below. There may be several lines relating to keyboard layout, language, etc, but you can ignore those.

[Desktop]
Session=gnome

2) Replace gnome with whatever you want, in this case gnome-classic.

3) Save with Ctrl - O and then Ctrl - X to close.
