In the shell you can run:
and you would get an output like:
BUT, I don't know if you would still get this if KDE was installed but not
running... (You can have GNOME and KDE on the one system, this is how I can
run GNOME specific apps under KDE).
Presumably there would be a similar shell command for GNOME
(gnome-config --version). I don't think it really solves your problem though.
You really need to check the system environment variables to see what window
manager is running. Unfortunately I can't help you there...
