Problems with starting a shell in KDE
I am fairly new to Linux, and I have a question about when I start a shell in KDE. I installed the distribution of Slackware 10.2, and am running Kernel version 2.4.31 with KDE 3.4. I have almost no .tcshrc file. When I start a shell with the "Konsole" button under the menu, it brings up the window, and then I get the following:
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
It then waits for about a minute, and gives me the shell. I went to the website it suggested, but didn't find much useful there. Do I have an environment variable I need to set or something? Thank you for your time.
sounds as if you would start your X session using your .tcshrc file.
If that's correct read next lines, if not, ignore me *g*
In this case, your konsole will try to start another session and that will fail.
You can remove your startx command from .tcshrc or check for the lockfile before calling it:
Worked great. Thank you very much for the info and your time. =)
