hello (again), I am still having some problems with kdm, I have searched (again) the archives and the handbook. Below are the steps I took, files I edited during setup. After I installed the X window system and KDE I created the file ~/.xinitrc which contains; exec startkde
after I created the file I could use startx to run KDE. I then setup KDM by editing the file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession. I added the following to the file; case $# in 1) case $1 in kde) exec /usr/local/bin/startkde ;; failsafe) exec xtem -geometry 80x24-0-0 ;; esac esac Finally I added the following to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0; /usr/local/bin/kdmdesktop KDM loads but when I log in nothing happens, I just end up back at the login screen. This is all the info I can think of. If I missed any please let me know.
