I'm running a few forums on RHEL/Centos servers I was recomended to try debian, I'm going to take it for a test drive as a home OS running a webserver. I might use it for media/webbrowesing, etc if its nice.
Anyways I've used centos with xfce, Just used the simple way with yum
Now I did apt-get install xfce
I'm confused how to get XFCE to load but I think you run something in /usr/bin anyways i tryed multiple things in root and not in root I always get gtk cannot open display error. I saw via google searches thats caused by x not wanting to run the app in root, wait I also tryed running the apps with my user account.
So I'm confused what I did wrong, I also removed xfce and installed gnome to see if it was a xfce problem, I also installed xchat after and get the same error.
I believe I need to apt-get the ati driver or install the ati driver some how, also is there anyway to use a generic driver first? I don't know anything about debian atm though I did get it installed after I get display working I should be fine its just a pain in the butt switching from debian to windows just to google the problem, I find some possible fix, switch back to find out x server still gives a error.
Thx for any help
