Hi all,

I am new to this forum and ubuntu. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I figure I'd try.

I recently installed the KDE environment on my acer c720 and everything was working great until I updated and then exited out. I cannot use the same command to launch ubuntu again using sudo startkde. I have posted the output below.

I originally followed the guide at

I updated it by installing the update-manager-core.

Please let me know if you have any ideas how I can get into KDE/Ubuntu again. Thanks!

In gentoo:

Run "startx" or "exec startkde" how user.

or/and add "exec startkde" in the file ".xinitrc".
