KDE will not run as any user other then root.
On my recent install of Arch + X11 + KDE, KDE will not let me log in as an unprivileged user. When I log in as my user name with KDM, the screen goes black for a moment and then KDM reappears. As root, KDE runs normally. Any idea on how I could run as a regular user?
I'm not sure about the proper fix for this and I'll anxiously await an answer from someone who know what the heck they're doing. But, in the meantime, log into KDE as root, create a new user (adduser command) and create a password for that user's account and try logging into KDE
with the new account you created.
