    help getting X configured


    hi, i usually install X server whenever i install a linux distribution. this time i went for a minimal install, and im currently setting up x.

    ive got x running, however i cant get any startup scripts to run.
    correct me if im wrong, but i always thought it was as simple as making a .xsessionrc in $HOME. ive written one which contains xterm&, but i dont get an xterm. infact the only way i can get a terminal open after starting x is to run startx as root.

    should that have been enough to get an xterm open, or is it slightly more complicated. anyway any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Rename your startup file .xsession and it should work.
