alright, so I can't get the mouse to work in kde....
Not cool -- so I changed it from /dev/mouse to /dev/psaux...
Then I changed the gpm(?) to use /dev/psaux instead of /dev/mouse and the mouse worked in bash....
so then I went into my .xinitrc and took out startkde....
NOW i'm getting an x error
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/colby:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
The above was the top most error....
This next error was at the very bottom, but I bet it was a direct result of the top one eh?
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!
