So I hammer "startx" into the keyboard and it gives me this:

Hm. Try apt-get install x-window-system. If not even that helps, try
apt-get --purge remove xserver-common xserver-xfree86
apt-get install xserver-common xserver-xfree86
I tried that and got the exact same error message.
I think that is where the problem lies. I just checked and I do not have
an /usr/bin/X11/X directory.
Now I hope you guys can help me. I am relatively new to Linux (used
SuSE and Debian before, but never really "got into it") and thus have
absolutely NO idea what to do. I tried checking the files he states
there for errors, but couldn't really get anywhere.
Are the files there?
Another problem is that I constantly have to boot from Debian to Win
so I can google, because I currently have only one computer here.
apt-get install links surfraw, then "sr google whatnot" (Pfeh, they
moved stuff to /usr/lib/surfraw/, so you'll have to run
surfraw-update-path -add to be able to do just "google whatnot")
Thanks, I will try that one! ;-)
P.S.: Btw, with dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86, what is the correct
mouse /dev for a usb mouse?
Ah... I _THINK_ /dev/input/mouse, or something similar.
