Re: Only root can run X
Help with a new user account.
I've added a new user but I can't log the user in from kdm. When I try
to log the user in through the kdm the screen blanks starts to load X
and returns me back to the login.
I can log the user into the shell just fine, but when I startx the
screen flash and the X server dies saying somehting about no
.Xauthority file found. I looked in root's home dir and did not see
any .Xauthority (root works by the way, I can log in and startx and
kde just fine. But onl y as root).
What do I need to do to have the other users be able to use X?
Check /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config. If it says "allowed_users=root", change
it to "allowed_users=console".
