Can't help I'm afraid, but you will probably find it easier to follow the answers you are given if you confine your questions to one thread per problem.
Posting multiple threads with the same question won't get you an answer any quicker.

First off, grep is case-sensitive. The command should be one of the following:
ps aux | grep 'X' ps aux | grep -i 'x'
Having said that, is the X server running? Press Ctrl-Alt-F7, which is where X usually runs.
