PostPosted: Thu Aug 07, 2003 4:34 pm    Post subject: no keyboard and mouse after startx Reply with quote

after I emerged kde, i did xf86config. But the keyboard and mouse are lost after startx. And my startx didn't start kde. What could be the cause? or is there something else I have to do before getting kde up and running?

PS. I think I have the right config, coz I used the same setting with slackware.

Thanks.

What kind of keyboard and mouse? Also, can you post the relevant parts of your XF86Config?

I now use the Knoppix' auto-detected config. And the keyboard works, but still no mouse. (Both work in knoppix).

And when I startkde, it complains can't open screen, but I have screen for startx, though startx didn't start kde. Also, it repeats saying "can't connect to kpersonalizer". So I can't start kde.

Problem solved by modprobe-ing hid, i didn't need this module before. Maybe I compiled it into my old kernel.

However, when I startx, I only get a Twm (a plain WM with 3 consoles open), but not kde. Why?

And when I do startkde, I get

xsetroot: unable to open display '' (note: I have display in startx)
xset: unable to open display ""
startkde: Starting up...
startkde: Running kpersonalizer...
kwin: cannot connect to X server
kpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server
kpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server
kpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server
kpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server
kpersonalizer: cannot connect to X server
(and goes on and on)

Read the man page for startx to find out about what programs it'll run by default. Also, I think startkde is supposed to be run not from the console, but after an X server has been started, e.g. from a .xsession

Thanks, Carlos.

I finally got my way from your hints. I copied the working knoppix .xinitrc and .Xsession. Then startx does start kde perfectly.

I'm just wondering how to setup the correct configuration in gentoo, like manually or is there a script for that. Is the /etc/X11/Sessions/kde-3.1.2 doing just that?

Thanks again. My second trial succeeded. Will play with it and hope I love it.

xinitrc/xsession are something one usually makes on one's own, I think. I don't have KDE installed, but I think the file you mentioned probably would work fine as an xsession file.
