cannot start kde as a user in slackware


whenever i try to start kde while logged in as a user (not root) it wont let me and just kicks me back to the shell or the login screen (whitchever i try to use). I can still log into any of the other desktops though (gnome, fluxbox etc.) and i can log into kde as root as well

heres the errors it put in the .xsession-errors file under my user account

Code:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession: line 36: xmodmap: command not found
stderr is not a tty - where are you?
SESSION_MANAGER=local/darkstar:/tmp/.ICE-unix/2823
nautilus: error while loading shared libraries: libcdda_paranoia.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1055:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p failed: Permission denied

what command are you trying to start kde when starting from a text terminal? Also, you should be seeing some output on the text screen. It's probably some permission problem or the kde binaries are not in your path or some such.

well you have 2 problems
1.) a libaraie is missing
nautilus: error while loading shared libraries: libcdda_paranoia.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
to find this goto where ever you got your packages from and search /slackware-9.1/FILELIST.TXT for libcdda_paranoia.so.0 get the package it is in and inasall it
2.) permissions on the file /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p is wrong use mc files menu cHmode and set it to write by others
