Okay we do it the easier (not 'vi' editor) way. Be on the X window as "root" first, "startx" as you used to do.
When you are logged as root do this:
a run dialog appears. On it enter these:
kate -b /etc/inittab
When kate presents you the inittab look for these lines:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
That number " 3 " change it to " 4
" do not put quotation marks, just change the number alone. Save it and Restart. You will be taken directly to the X window login.
CAUTION: Never change anything on the inittab, only the number "3" make it "4" nothing else.
Hope that helps.
