Hello All,

I've just installed LXDE and can't get it to start via .xinitrc with "exec startlxde" or startlxde right at the CLI.

I followed this wiki -- but I used emerge versus paludis

http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Gentoo

Tips and assistance greatly appreciated.

You will have to provide additional information. What messages do you get in your logs?

Hi nichocouk,

I tailed

/var/log/messages

&

/var/log/Xorg.0.log

while at init-3

did not see anything at all enter into the logs. There's no interaction/response or error.

Even when I modify my .xinitrc file and startx I get nothing.

Not a show-stopper per se, I use XFCE and it works I'm just interested to see LXDE working.

The wiki looks weird to me I must say!
I followed The LXDE Configuration HOWTO and this works fine for me.
I'm using slim as displaymanager.
Cheers,
