openSUSE is a general purpose operating system built on top of the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported openSUSE Project and sponsored by SUSE and a number of other companies. After Novell acquired SUSE Linux in January 2004, Novell decided to release the SUSE Linux Professional product as a 100% open source project.
openSUSE by default installs KDE as desktop manager and in this post I am going to explain how you can switch the desktop manager from KDE to GNOME in openSUSE
open SUSE comes with KDE as default Desktop Manager and to use GNOME first we need to install the same.

Installation of GNOME will get started
Configure GNOME as Default Desktop Manager

Following window will appear
Press OK; a pop-up will appear asking for confirmation, press OK to continue.
Thats it, Logoff and login again.
