Swithing from Xfce > KDE?[SOLVED]

I've used Xfce for a while and think it's pretty ugly and boring and would like a fresh change. So I download the KDE package. run Xorg- configure and some other programs refered to on Wiki. It doesn't launch though. Can't open display is the message I get. I use xorg (I think) and use "startxfce4" to launch X. Can anyone point me in the right direction (help me know what's wrong)?

[edit] IE is there some command or file I can post that could show the problem?

Put "exec startkde" (no quotes) in your .xinitrc file and use startx or xinit.

(As far as I can tell startx just runs a few useful apps if you happen to use TWM and wastes a megabyte of memory. Don't take my word on it though.)

And you don't get that stuff with "exec startxfce4" in your .xinitrc?

It worked now. I didn't try startx (only startkde).
