    startx : xfce


    I installed centos5.2 on an old (P3) laptop. At first I did not install X. Then, however, I installed 2 groups: "X Window System" and "XFCE4.4". I can start X with startx, however, what do I need to edit in order for XFCE to start when I type: startx.

    thanks

    Try putting the following in your /home/user_name/.xinitrc file:

    Code:
    exec startxfce4
    ...then Xfce should start when you enter startx at the command line.
