It's probably not in your path ...
try to use the fully qualified path.


locate startkde



Cheers,

Solved??

I did nothing.

I took a break from Linux and booted into Windows to do some work. After I was done, rebooted my system to give Linux another hack, and voila! That's poi-fect.

Explanation please?

You screwed up the PATH variable in the last
session? :)

how?

I didn't modify anything. To narrow down my story, I simply rebooted my computer and it worked?

Well, all it takes is a typo ...

One could try to set a path temporarily and
do
export PATH=PATH:~/bin
instead of
export PATH=$PATH:~/bin


And all your commands are gone (for this
one session/terminal). A reboot will fix that.
As will logging out and back in.


Cheers,
Tink
