startx "command not found"
x is all there in the X11R6 folder but startx doesn't work. I can't actually find any file called startx either.

Any ideas? I'v etried "startx2 while in /usr/X11R6/bin but still no luck

From my machine:

[baldrick@localhost baldrick]$ whereis startx
startx: /usr/X11R6/bin/startx /usr/bin/X11/startx
[baldrick@localhost baldrick]$

Has it possibly been deleted?

Thanks so much for the quick reply. I guess ur right. Weird thing is that this is a brand new install of srage and I just did apt-get "install xserver-xfree86". All I have in hte two folders you've mentioned are to files; X and XFree86.

May be there's something I need to do after apt had finished to "initialise"?

i'll try to re-install.

Many thyanks
