I am using sddm to start kde and it works fine. Now I am interested in fvwm and want to try fvwm by "startx". But it doesn't work. I make .xinitc like

Code:
 1 #!/bin/sh
 2
 3 exec fvwm


Then I tried to run fvwm. it says can't open display. Running startkde returns $DISPLAY is not set or can not connect to X server. What reason could it be?
Thanks

I did so. That's why I am confused.
