    Startx not working


    Hi,
    I am trying to use startx command after I login but I gives error as xinit: connection to X server lost. Why could cause it? I am Using VMware player for ubuntu3.2.0-32-generic 64 bit and my X Server is 1.11.3. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Have a look at your /var/run/Xorg.0.log. It contains a complete record of the most recent Xorg session. Whatever is causing your problem will probably be somewhere near the end of it.
