Hello everyone!
Having had problems to install enlightment I have now a new problem.

Indeed when I do startx I am entitled to this message.

Yes I see that just before your reply but the problem still persists after this correction.

I add that I have black screen for one second between the startx and messages. My system also turns for information in a virtual machine (vmware).

WhitakerF,

Did you test with no ~/.xinitrc and with twm, xterm and xclock. Thats worth doing, so we can tell if its Xorg or enlightenment that is causing the problem.

How do I run Enlightement otherwise? I can not find the net in other ways on internet (I'm still a big novice I apologize).

WhitakerF,

We can come that that later. We don't even know if Xorg works.
As you are using a virtual machine, it has challenges of its own.

There is no need to apologise for being a novice. We all remember getting started in Linux.

You will find this Gentoo Wiki page useful.
It shows both how to start Enlightenment from the console and using a graphical log in manager.

With these two commands can I check this ?

Quote:
echo "enlightenment_start" >> /etc/X11/Sessions/Enlightenment
chmod +x /etc/X11/Sessions/Enlightenment


When I first I have the following message :

Quote:
bash: /etc/x11/Sessions/Enlightenment: No such file or directory

I guess this is not normal?

Also having problems using exec enlightenment_start in .xinitrc...
Xorg itselfs works fine. Tested it with TWM+xterm and also awesome. Both work fine, but with enlightenment I get only no such file or directory
