Could any one please explain how to do this in Slackware.
xwmconfig if you're starting with startx.I\'m so tired .....
Kde returned command not found.
Startkde returned "cannot connect to xserver" and it was repeated continuouly.
xwmconfig worked perfectly.''
Thanks for your help.
Budman you should have a file in your home directory called .xinitrc
in it putCode:
exec startkdeSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

Will that allow me to start kde automatically, or will I still have to "startx".
In order to start kde automatically, don't I have to change something to init 5 as a default.

if you are in slackware, the default runlevel is 3 and i think what you are asking for is for it to be 4 instead (which gives you a graphical login rather than a textual one) to do this, edit your /etc/inittab file and change this line:
and change the "3" to a "4".
it's possible you're asking something else entirely so if this isn't what you want, sorry in advance.
you are right, in Slackware it is runlevel 4. The others I have dealt with, it is runlevel 5, for the graphical desktop. Thank you..
Budman - I start mine in runlevel 3. I do this because if my monitor fails or if I change it I can configure xorg.conf before I start x on my new monitor. I had a friend bring his linux box over one day and he has it start at runlevel5 and it wouldn't work with my monitor. I had to ssh into the box and change xorg then it worked. It was kind of a pain in the but so I just start all mine in text mode.

I decided to switch back to runlevel 3. I missed those really cool quotes that you get when you log in to CLI
