If you select LXDE from GDM then it should remember that setting. I
can't tell for sure if you've done that with the limited information
you've provided.

I recently installed F10 on a low end laptop (P2 366MHz) w/ 128MB of
ram. I'm using LXDE in combination with Slim (login manager). I
probably should put put it in bugzilla but I created a lxde.switchdesk
file (modified from the fluxbox one) so you can use switchdesk to
change to LXDE. However, I found out the hard way that if you choose
your desktop in GDM, switchdesk will have no effect.

all switchdesk does is create a file with a WM setting, so if you type startx to bring up X then it works.  I mentioned that I had to select LXDE every time from GDM so thats what I have been doing, in fact the whole purpose of the message was to ask how to be able to stop doing that.
