Auto run STARTX


When I login at the text prompt I subsequently have to type STARTX to get the gui running.

How do I automate this?? I know there's a file I need to modify somewhere, but I haven't been successful at locating it.

Could you indicate which file and what I need to edit?

Thank you,
Neb

in your home directory, edit (or create) a .bash_login file and add:

startx



Notice the period before the file name.
