Configuring Enlightenment as the default window manager


I have changed the .xinitrc file under each of the following options:

Quote:
exec windowmanager
exec starte16
Quote:
exec windowmanager
exec e16
Quote:
exec starte16
but still cannot start Enlightenment. I get the following message:

Quote:
Enlightenment cannot connect to the display nominated by your shell's DISPLAY environment variable. You may set this variable to indicate which display name Enlightenment is to connect to. It may be that you do not have an X Server already running to serve that display connection, or that you do not have permission to connect to that display. Please make sure all is correct before trying again. Run an Xserver by running xdm or startx first, or contact your local system administrator, or Xserver vendor, or read the X, xdm and startx manual pages before proceeding.
Can someone please help me out.
