alrighty... possibly another silly question...but...

I followed the desktop install instructions, and have now set up KDE..

it seems to boot okay, but all i'm presented with is a desktop with a terminal and xsm...

shouldnt i have a launch bar somewhere??

Try this ...

echo startkde > ~/.xinitrc

It will create a file called .xinitrc in your home folder and put startkde on a single line in it. Then try startx again.

Alternatively, try typing simply kdm at the command prompt and taking it from there.
