(KDE) Desktop-related question
I typically issue startx from command line mode as user root. This brings up an attractive KDE Desktop. UNIX Best Practices say to typically NOT to run as root unless you have to, so I'd rather run as as myself, another user (also connected to root group, as it happens, but I guess I can remove that association).
In any case, when I issue startx as myself (not root user), I get 2 or 3 crummy looking xterm consoles, no Desktop, a different command prompt (PS1), etc. Clearly some desktop configuration file(s) is not set up for this user. Alternatively, what is set up is in 2nd class, so to speak.
What must I do to get a handsome KDE Desktop for this user?
