Hello,

Last week I've installed kde.
I see now very strange behaviour with kde.
It started when I try to load kde automatically , (instead of writing "startx" every time in terminal).

I don't use display manager, just terminal on display.
on boot it gets to prompt of user and password.
When I want to manually start kde I just enter in terminal:
"startx", and this seems to work fine.

Now I added in user's .bashrc a call
...
startx
...
1. But surprisingly even though it starts KDE display when entering password, when I try to start konsole, I get blank screen and logo of KDE.
2. Even more surprising, I once just entered in terminal (before kde starts) "vi /home/user/.bashrc" and pressed enter, and then I see kde logo in the center and blank screen !!!!! What's is this ? Is it a virus ???

Thanks for any idea, I start to lose my mind on this behaviour,

That's definitely the wrong place!

Look at the man page of bash:
bash man page wrote:
When an interactive shell that is not a login shell is started, bash reads and executes commands from ~/.bashrc

So when you start konsole, a new instance of bash will be started (for the terminal window) - and it will read/execute .bashrc, which will start another X session. This will give you exactly the result you described...

Right!
Thanks very much, I was sure there is some mystery here, now I see the logic.
