For many years I used to log in my linux boxes in text mode, and to start kde (if needed) using startx (no display manager). To this end, in /etc/env.d/90xsession I had the line
Code:
XSESSION=KDE-4

Now I'm in process of upgrading to kde-5. Is it possible to start it via startx? What should I write in /etc/env.d/90xsession?

I don't see a session in my system, but you can do:

Code:
echo "exec /usr/bin/startkde" > ~/.xinitrc


to use startx, provided dbus and consolekit services are up.
