It seems that I can't run KDE 3.2 as root.
Anyone know how I can do this?
I like being able to run KDE as root, because I like the GUI environment for setting up new users etc.
I could do this in Gentoo.
Also I don't run it as root all the time, and yes I know about the security risks involved, but it's on my home PC, and it's what I want to do.
When I run startx from root it complains it can't find startkde.
Well you can run as root when you log in (KDM)
It is not a good idea to run as root all the time....but then its your system you can do what you want...
Have you got
In your .xinitrc file ?
Aro you logging in as root, or just doing an 'su'? If you're just doing an 'su', try 'su -'. That will make it a login prompt, instead of a just changing the uid.
