    I'm a little bit confused, but I take it you want to run KDE or gnome with the command "startx". Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Edit the file ~/.xinitrc yes (or create it) Here's an example file:
    # startkde
    You can also launch other apps directly from xinitrc, but if you use KDE or Gnome, they have their own session managers which can take care of it. My example file will launch Gnome. If you want KDE instead, place a # in front of gnome-session and remove the one in front of startkde.
