Yeps directly from GDM.

just type:

switchdesk enlightenment

assuming that you have the package:
switchdesk-4.0.8-4 installed.

It should work. Or else edit the files ~/.Xclients and
~/.Xclients-default manually. You should
alter the WMPATH to /usr/local in your case. :)

(didier@zeus:~)$ cat ~/.Xclients-default
# (c) 2000 Red Hat, Inc.

WMPATH="/usr/bin /usr/X11R6/bin /usr/local/bin"

for p in $WMPATH ; do
   [ -x $p/$WM ] && exec $p/$WM

exit 1

(didier@zeus:~)$ cat ~/.Xclients
#! /bin/bash

# Created by Red Hat Desktop Switcher

if [ -e "$HOME/.Xclients-$HOSTNAME$DISPLAY" ]; then
    exec $HOME/.Xclients-$HOSTNAME$DISPLAY
    exec $HOME/.Xclients-default
