I've been using Gnome panels with Enlightenment, but would like to check
out kde with Enlightenment. I've been able to get them started
together, but noted that my E desktop menus are replaced by kde menus,
when clicking on the desktop.
Is there an easy way to resolve this issue, or is it a hack via keybindings?

Really? I use KDE and E and have not had that problem. Anyway, using KDE
3.3.x here is how to use KDE and E together. You actually have two choices.
1) set KDEWM=enlightenment and start KDE normally. This will bring up KDE on
top of the E window manager. This gives you the full functionality of KDE
with the window handling of E.
2) Start E normally, and then run the KDE panel (kicker). This is not really
necessary per se, but if you want the KDE menus and easy access to all KDE
apps and the inherent completeness of kicker, this is a great way to get
just the parts of KDE you want. I even added a section in my session file
so that it starts automatically. Here is the section from my snapshot file
Of course, KDE is in my path.
Only caveat here is that when you shutdown E, KDE does NOT shutdown cleanly.
You must manually shut KDE down by issuing the following.
# Clean up from startkde script.
artsshell -q terminate
Be prepared for some weird messages on your screen while shutdown occurs.
Just press [Enter] when the cursor is on a new line.
I use 2) since it permits me to just load the components I want, but gives
me full panel functionality. I like ROX too, but it's not as robust a panel
