Well, I've tried the info I've found with google and every
source I can...but, no happiness.
I am running KDE on OpenBSD 3.4.
X seems to be installed and working. When the machine
boots the X login screen comes up with the nice gui and a
puffy fish graphic.
So far so good.
If I login, I get a an xterm window.
if I then type startkde, the KDE desktop is added to the
But, if I create a .xsession file and put the startkde line in it.
No xterm starts and I get a box saying that "Couldn't start
kdeinit" and an ok button. Clicking this button returns me to
the puffy screen.
So I ssh in from another machine and rename the .xsession
file and we're back to the way it was.
Now what I'd like is the choice of starting a plain xterm
session OR kde after I enter username and password OR a
none GUI command line.
The puffy login screen is fine with me.
So, nothing that I've googled has given me much in the way
of concise guidance here.
- Could someone point me to docs that have complete
details (everything I've found so far is a bit of this, a bit of
that) of setting up kde.
- Could someone explain or point to docs which show the
complete sequence of what goes on to start and xterm
session/KDE session. (i'e. what scripts and their sequence at
login are run...or expected/optioned, what shell variables are
Any help is greatly appreciated!
