Fail to start X


Hi folks,


Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64

After login
$ startx
Code:
xauth: creating new authority file /home/satimis/.serverauth.4535

X: cannot stat /etc/X11/X (No such file or directory), aborting.
giving up.
xinit:  Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.
$ ls /etc/X11/
Code:
rgb.txt  
xinit
xkb
Xresources
Xsession
Xsession.d
Xsession.options
Xwrapper.config
Whether I need to create xorg.conf manually? Is there a sample for this server?


TIA


B.R.

No X by default. Pretty sure you have to install it.

apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

or

apt-get install gnome-desktop

I have read many posts that advise against this. I personally use Pioneer. KDE is already installed.

Hi DrEwMoNeY,


Tks for your advice.

I'll install gnome-desktop but don't want it starts at boot. What is the trick, removing "gdm"?

What did you meant "Pioneer"? Linux Pioneer?

Tks.
