Alternative DE for Gnome User

Gnome has been crashing a lot for me lately. What is the best DE to install alongside Gnome? I need them not to interfere withveach other.

XFCE has its own window manager and lives peacefully side by side with others.
Have fun!

Re: Alternative DE for Gnome User

Hi xia4q

Welcome to the forum.

Here is some feedback.

Are you using Gnome Wayland, or Gnome.xorg. If the former, when you are in the process of logging into the system, before entering the password, there is a small gear wheel, below center and to the right. click on it and select gnome.org option

Usually that will solve your problem(s) with Gnome. Otherwise, as was mentioned, review and choose from XFCE, Mate, or even try gnome2 via that gear wheel.

Let us know your success.
