Error running blackbox: BScreen::BScreen: an error occured while querying the X se


Dear all,

I tried to run blackbox with the command: /usr/bin/blackbox but the following output was prompted:

BScreen::BScreen: an error occured while querying the X server.
another window manager is already running on display :0.0.
Blackbox::Blackbox: no managable screens found, aborting

I don't understand what it means...can anyone help me?
thanks a lot for helping!

If your loged out of x I would remove the file,I don't know much about this switch desk,I like to keep it simple,just set up .xinitrc and then startx.But that is in runlevel 3,I don't use kdm or gdm or xdm,don't like them.
