trouble installing kde
I'm sure that I'm just suffering from newbitis and I apologize. I'm
trying to install kde on sarge. I have done apt-get kde. I have the
first 4 cds and everything installed with no problem and only a few
items required to download. When I tried startkde I got something
xset: unable to open display
xsetwin[??]: unable to open display
kwin: unable to connect X server
kpersonalize[??]: unable to connect to X server
(Sorry that I don't have the exact error messages, just the notes that
I scrawled down.)
After some googling I found that xserver-xfree86 was not installed. I
put that in and did a apt-get dist-upgrade just to be sure.
Everything was fine but no kde and same errors. I did a
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 which gave me a lot of dialogs that I
hadn't seen before, but I still cannot start kde.
Can anyone give me any ideas what to pursue here? It's a bit
difficult because I'm dual-booting, so without kde or any other gui, I
can't get online to browse for answers (except for lynx, which I can
use for a bit, but I'm pretty spoiled on having firefox open with a
dozen tabs with different solutions...). Again, my apologies if I
just need to RTFM. If someone could point me to the correct FM I'd
really appreciate it!
