    problems launching kde


    Hello guys. i've a lil problem launching kde
    when i send startx, after the nvidia img i got this:
    Code:
    xkb_keycodes         { include "xfree86+aliases(qwerty)" }
    xkb_types         { include "complete" }
    xkb_compatibility         { include "complete" }
    xkb_symbols         { include "pc(pc105)+us" }
    xkb_geometry         { include "pc(pc105)" }
    /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 47 xterm : command not found
    /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 48 xterm : command not found
    /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 49 exec : command not found
    
    waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE "usr/share/fonts/misc/" ref count is 2 should be 1; fixing.
    any idea?

    Looks like something's wrong with your /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file, the error points to lines 47, 48, and 49. Take a look, or maybe even post it here.

    #merge in default and keymaps
    if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
     xdrb -merge $sysresources
    fi
    if [ -f  $sysmodmap ]; then
     xmodmap $sysmodmap
    fi
    if [ -f  $userresources ]; then

    if [ -f  $usermodmap ]; then

    fi
    #first Try ~/.xinitrc
    if [ -f "$HOME/.xinitrc"]; then
              XINITRC= "$HOME/.xinitrc"
              if [ -x $XINITRC ]; then

    I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, from what I've seen via google, that error isn't what is stopping xwindows, something is probably wrong in the config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf).

    Have you gone through this documentation? It takes you through installing and configuring xorg. Afterwards, try this out for KDE.
