There are two files that control which windowsmanager shall be used (depending on whether you use a login manager or just startx) One is called .xinitrc the other one .xsession - they are both in your home directory - create them (you can create one of them and symlink the other one) and add the start command to the file (full path) - and make sure they are set executable (chmod 755 <filename>) eg. for kde: exec /usr/local/bin/startkde eg for gnome: exec /usr/local/bin/gnome-session -- Armin Pirkovitsch [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
