Seem Stuck in TWM


Hey,
I just installed FreeBSD 5.3 in vmware and seem to be stuck in twm when I login and type startx. What is the bsd command to switch to KDE or GNOME out of TWM?

Thanks,
Derek

Help yourself for the path with :
#which startkde
#which gnome-session

Code:
startx /path/startkde --:0
Code:
startx /path/gnome-session --:0

I have just uncovered another problem...I get my x configured correctly, using the same settings as used in solaris with my xorgconfig command. The trouble is, I can't get the mouse to move once x has started. The keyboard will work, but my mouse won't move.

No, change your mouse device setting to /dev/input/mice.

That probably will work. And to get kdm (K Desktop Manager) to start you must edit your /etc/ttys
The faq can be found at: http://freebsd.kde.org

It tells you howto do it there.
