ehmm.. I think I use the default window manager.. KDE or whatever it's called?! haven't made any known changes anyway!

What log file should I look for, and what text in this log file?

thanks! :-)

Do you have a FOOT as a main menu ? Something like GNOME ?

Okay have you ever started X as root to test whether the problem still exists ? I assume you don't run it as root huh?

Do the following: su - [type the passwd of root when asked]

The same as you start it as normal user. Type: startx
