kde help


I am new to this forum.


I am using a XWindows utility to connect my desktop to the linux server.
we are running Linux Suse 9.

I am able to start xterm and run utilities like xclock. This verifies that the graphical xwindows is working.

Now generally if I am working on the console which is attached to my server I get access to a menu based KDE Kdesktop Environment

which utility/command do I run from an xterm window on my desktop to get the KDE ?

Thanks in advance for helping.

Edit the ~/.xinitrc file, if it doesn't exist, create it. Any regular text editor (nedit, nano, vim...) will work.

Then add this line into it:

Code:
startkde
You could as well run "startkde" on an xterm, however I am not sure if that will succeed completely, and in any case it will not be permanent.

Yup it works

method was correct

Login to server with help of XWindows utility
start Xterm
login as root
cd /opt/kde3/bin
./startkde

This shows the kde on my desktop

You really shouldn't be running kde as root, there's no need to do so, and it's dangerous. A simple miss-click can send your whole system to oblivion.
