Sorry, KDE not found


When I try to log in through kdm, as anyone but root, I get a small X-style box saying "Sorry, KDE not found". I tried replacing kde with startkde in ~/.wmrc, but this did not work. Has anyone got any suggestions?
Thanks
Guy

OK, in case anyone's interested...
The problem was that /dev/null was not writable by anyone other than root. So if you've searched some archives looking for a solution to this problem, then check that.
