This is twm. It's a window manager displaying three xterms. It's not a desktop environment. > Why KDE not starts? Because... maybe you're missing the correct startup files. X display managers (xdm, kdm, gdm) and the startx command behave a bit differently. The easiest way to be able to use *any* method of starting is to have the following files in your home directory: 1. ~/.xsession #!/bin/csh source ~/.cshrc exec ~/.xinitrc 1. ~/.xinitrc #!/bin/sh [ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc # ... your further startup commands here, e. g. xsetroot -solid rgb:3b/4c/7a xset b 100 1000 15 & xset r rate 250 30 & xset s off & xset -dpms & # this starts your desired window manager / DE exec startkde Refer to the KDE documentation about what's the correct name to start KDE. I think it's "startkde", but I may be wrong because I am not using KDE, so it's honestly just a guess. Make sure that both files are +x attributes. % chmod +x .xinitrc .xsession -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
