I recently installed slackware 9 and since this is my first linux installation ever im kinda green on the subject
My question now is: I'm having some problems starting X as user. When I start X (i run blackbox) and rightclick on "xterm" nothing happens. Same as all the other programs in the list except for mozilla which starts fine.
Now what really boggles my mind is that it used to work real fine until i did something. I was just messing around trying to get my ntfs partitions readable to users (which btw, i didnt get to work, so if you have any tips on that id be grateful too). What I did was just changing around some mount options for my secondary drive in /etc/fstab and then it stopped working(the xterm thingy that is). I of course changed them back to what they were from the beginning so im having a hard time believing that that is the problem.
When i log in as root there are no problems at all with this so I tried to start X and then su -s user and then try to start another xterm from there and I get the reply "Xterm xt error: Cant open display:". Same thing happens when i try to start mozilla from the user xterm in x.
Oh, and when i start X from user and then quit it again the prompt reads something like
"Xterm error: couldnt find xterm:
Reason? not enough tty" or something similar.
Sooo, my question is, what's going on? Im kinda thinking it maybe has something to do with my path variables but now ive set users path to the exact same as root and still no luck
Any input on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, and just one more thing, how (as in which file) do i put the bbsetbg command to set my own background for blackbox, i tried with xinitrc but then it sets the default background over my own...
