I had the same problem with kdm, but no problem with gdm.
Hi. Installing gdm did not do the trick :(You must uninstall the kdm service first and select in the session selector of gdm "kde". If you don't select the session type, get some errors.
I uninstalled kdm and selected kde as a session but I got the same message telling me that my session lasted lower than 10s and bla bla..When doing startx as a normal user from console I get some errors like "xkb could not initialize" and "Xinit: no such file or directory" and "Xinit: Could not connect to xserver"....
Have you stopped the kdm first?
Yes I did stop kdm when I tried that. The strange thing is that if I login as root from console and do a startx then a kde session starts normally. If I do that as a normal user I get the errors..
Can you paste the errors?
When trying to login with gdm it has an option to view the .xsession-errors file. The error is mkdtmp: private folder browsing (something like that :P): Permission denied.
When I was using kdm and did a cat on the same file the second line just showed: Permission denied.
I checked the .Xauthority file and did chown to my user.
I remember that first time I try to execute the startx with my user I get some errors but not with root. The problem was that the /tmp directory doesn't have permissions to write with my user.
The correct permissions are:
drwxrwxrwt 8 root root 12288 2010-04-07 13:12 .
Could you check it?
Some friend told me to purge kde and reinstall it. I don't think this will help. Do you think I should give it a try?
I tried that with no success :-(
If that didn't help you I will not bother..
Check the sticky bit.. is the important think.
I think is:
chmod 01777 /tmp
chmod 01777 /var/tmp
