Re: kde error

Well, yes  i was using startkde. So I guess I have to install kdm or gdm before running startkde, if I understood correct? And the way to install either one of them is by using aptitude install kdm for example?
I tried aptitude installl kdat and it gave me a message nothing is available to install. Any other suggestions? I search google and I found something named  kdat_3.5.7-1_i386.deb. What type of file is it and how can I install it?
Thank you all!

1) Can you be more specific?  How are you trying to start KDE? The script
startkde does not replace startx, but rather is run from within a
.xinitrc.  Most people run some kind of display manager like kdm or
gdm, which starts kde for you.


   aptitude install kdat

should work.
