help starting KDE 3.3.2 automatically


Hi!

I have recently upgraded to KDE 3.3.2, now kde won't start automatically when I log in. I also don't get a choice of KDE or gnome session anymore just starts gnome by default.

I have added exec startkde in my .xinitrc so when I log out I go back to the prompt and if I type startx then KDE 3.3.2 starts OK.

I have tried mv my HOME .kde and /root/.kde same result

Also why when I log out from GNOME I go back to the prompt and not to a window to choose session and user as before (KDE 3.1)?

At the prompt as root if I type kdm nothing happens.

Many thanks!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
