Hi again, I am able to start Xorg, but kde does not start. It seems it still has problems with my display.
The most important failure messages that showed up when trying to start kde are : Xsetroot: unable to open display '' Xset: unable to open display '' Ksplash: cannot connect to X Server Kdeinit : Aborting. $DISPLAY is not set. I also copied my modified xorg.conf.new with "HorizSync" and "VertRefresh" settings from the /root/ to the folder /etc/X11/ but it seems it cannot find the file ??! What else can I do to get KDE running. BTW : When I run "startx" first and then fire up "startkde" from the konsole in X , then KDE starts... I am new to Unix at all. I have no clue to search for a hint :-) Someone able to help me get KDE running from the Shell ??

I have always had to edit the resulting ~/xorg.conf.new to add the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines to match my monitor, given that Xorg seems to not detect my primitive hardware perfectly. You may want to look up your own monitor timings, as these will likely not work. Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Monitor Vendor" ModelName "Monitor Model" HorizSync 31-92 VertRefresh 55-160 EndSection -- -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
