I did pacman -S kde and all is fine, go to startx, and i get
/home/username/.xinitrc: line 14: exec: kde: not found
i did notice pacman never got a file called 'kde' a bunch of files FOR kde, but it seems it never got kde itself? any input would be very helpful.
try exec startkde....
hah! thanks, i checked the wiki, problem was just ignorance. since i'm coming from fluxbox, i ASSUMED that exec kde would do it, stupidstupid.
[whisper]the stuff stuff about starting differnet window managers is also on the wiki[/whisper]
