Typed startx - startx not installed.
So ask if I wanted to install, yes I do.
Typed startx - directory not there - aborted install
created directory - another not there.
So I'm guessing I need to create all the directories not showing up.
Plus it says error in locking Authority file.
I will try to work my way through this install, but sure I'll be back with more issues.
I just want to add that this site is a great forum for newcomers.
Or should I just buy Linux for Dummies, because that's how I feel, real dumb.
I'm getting the same error with "apt" command as I was with startx.
X: cannot read /etc/X11/X symbolic link invalid argument, aborting.
Anyone have any clues to what I shoudl do next.
I thought maybe changing permission to file, but how do I give permission to the system? This all happens before I logon, shouldn't the system have the permission already, if that is the issue.
I will continue to look for similar problems on forum, but if anyone may know something right off hand I would appreciated your help.
Thanks in advance
