This bug may be #446970 "kdeinit not found", but I don't see how the suggestion given there (make sure that ksmserver is update to 3.5.8) can help, since 3.5.8 is not in testing.

I normally start a KDE desktop session from the console, using startx.  After a recent update startx only flashes the nVidia logo, shows the "x" cursor, then goes blank.

However, starting a desktop session through kdm brings up the login prompt and KDE desktop successfully.

My .xsession-errors file shows the following after a failed startx attempt:

Xsession: X session started for root at Thu Nov 15 22:10:41 EST 2007
startkde: Starting up...
startkde: Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation.
Error: Can't open display: :0
Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory

And the shutdown of a (successful) kdm session writes the following to .xsession-errors (process 2302 is 'kded [kdeinit] --new-startup'):

startkde: Shutting down...
klauncher: Exiting on signal 1
process 2302: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were incorrect, asser$
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
process 2302: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were incorrect, asser$
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
startkde: Done.

As mentioned, this seems similar to #446970, but I'm confused about the suggestion to update ksmserver to 3.5.8, since the current version in testing is 3.5.7.dfsg.1-1.  /usr/bin/start_kdeinit_wrapper does exist.  Lines 347-354 of startkde look like this:

# We set LD_BIND_NOW to increase the efficiency of kdeinit.
# kdeinit unsets this variable before loading applications.
LD_BIND_NOW=true start_kdeinit --new-startup +kcminit_startup
if test $? -ne 0; then
  # Startup error
  echo 'startkde: Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation.'  1>&2
  xmessage -geometry 500x100 "Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation."

Thank you for your attention.
