Re: KDE install issues

What happens is that the reconfigure will run, and then it will just stop abnormally.  It is like the program is done, but it is not because I never get to set my screen or video card etc.  This leaves my xorg.conf looking like this:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"

 Which is obviously incomplete.
Thanks for the help.

When I ran su  dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, it cuts out half way through the reconfigure, not allowing me to finish the reconfigure, and stopping me after keyboard, how can i fix that?

I'm not sure what you mean by "cuts out". Do you mean the program freezes, or terminates normally, or terminates abnormally, or what?

You may have to do something like dpkg-reconfigure -plow xserver-xorg; others might have better suggestions.

   It sounds like either you have an incomplete installation of KDE,
   or file/permissions corruption, or most-likely, video driver
   issues. I'd change my video driver to nv or to vesa, whichever
   gives the best results. You can do this in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf
