This is a problem I reported a while ago. That was setting up a nother PC, but
after recovering from a disk failure, I am getting the same problem on my PC.
I've had a good go at solving this, but no luck.
If I log on through kdm, instead of getting the desktop I get what I think is
an xterm window. In tjhis window, I can type "./.xsession" and my desktop
comes up fine, so I suppose there is a connection betwen kdm and .xsession
If I use xdm for logon, then I do get to hte kde desktop no problems (but the
xdm logon does not have a closedown option, which confuses the children).
If I start from a text screen and type "startx -- :1", then I get my kde
desktop no problems.
Anyone know why kdm is not running my .xsession? Or if that is a red herring,
anyone know what the problem actually is?
I am running kde 3.1.4 on Suse 7.3.
