This is not easy, as the scripts that start X also tray hard to find
a desktop or window manager. It they can not find one, they default
to starting an xterm. Depending on what you are trying to do, xnest
may work for you. If we knew what you were trying to test, we might
have a better suggestion for you.

I don't remember the GUI that does it, but you can set it in
/etc/sysconfig/desktop. If the file is empty, you can add:

DISPLAYMANAGER = KDE

You can also set the default desktop in the same file.
