FreeSBIE question.


Well, first of all: Hello and greetings!

I was wondering how you start gnome or KDE with FreeSBIE, and I know this is a very n00b question, so please contain yourselves and answer.

Thank you all!

Tavy

It seemed more of a newb question then a true post worthy of the *BSD forum, that's why I put it here.

Cheers!

Do you have KDE installed?
If so, try xwmconfig, select KDE, and try it then.
If that doesn't work, there is another (albeit improper) way I know of, and that includes puttting a file called .xinitrc in ~ and putting in it a line that says startkde
this is easily accomplished by entering this command (if the file's not there):
Code:
$ echo startkde >> ~/.xinitrc

freesbie

I've used freesbie 1.1 and I've noticed that the live cd does not come with gnome or KDE. It does let you boot into either fluxbox, which is a stripped down desktop environment, or xfce, which more fully featured, like kde and gnome. If you installed freesbie on your hard drive, then you could run kde and/or gnome with it.
