startkde Problems in Slackware


I have installed all the packages in the KDE section using installpkg but when I run xwmconfig, select KDE, and then run startx, I get the message that the command startkde can not be found. What else do I need to install to get this to work? Thanks.

'locate startkde'

And put it in your path, it appears it isn't there.

you need to logoff and logon to get kde into your path after you upgrade

But I never upgraded. It was a fresh install of KDE. Would that make a difference?

*** EDIT ***
And what do you mean "And put it in your path?" What path?

sorry, i didn't mean upgrading. you need to do that only after a fresh install. to be sure that it installed properly see that 'startkde' is present at '/opt/kde/bin/startkde'. I don't know whether this will work or not, but whenever I had this problem after installing kde, I just used to logoff and logon once and everything used to be fine

i have the same problem now. i tried to build kde according to this manual:
http://cvsview.tldp.org/index.cgi/LD..._with_tag=MAIN

but when i run startkde, i get 'command not found'. the only file 'startkde' is in directory, where i have been compiling source. why is it so and how could i fix it ?

slack 9.1 on 2.4

Do this to locate the file -->#whereis startkde [this should give you the directory in which it's there]

or) #updatedb
#locate startkde | less

to run startkde change into the directory outputted in the above commands or give the fullpath and the file name ..
