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:

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
