startx "command not found"


I am assuming that is not installed, where or how can I get it? I am using Kali Linux and I found other threads with similar issue, but the links included there, are not working anymore. THANKS

It's part of the xinit package. "apt-cache show xinit" should tell you about it.

startx "command not found" = install xinit (package)
