Hello, now as I know how to connect to the internet (although it's not a good solution) I went on to install an DE.
First I did
pacman -Sy pacman
My next step was to install xfree86 with
pacman -S xfree86
That worked well and I configured xfree with xf86config.
Now I went on with a
pacman -S kde
Now I rebooted my system and wanted to start KDE. But neither exec kdestart nor a simple startkde worked.
At first I have to startx and then in a shell of xterm I can start KDE with startkde
But I don't like it this way because the windows in KDE are still in xterm style. Is there a possibility to start xfree86 during booting and after that KDE with normal KDE style?
You want the command startkde.

Yes, of course, that was what I meant... startkde (I corrected it in my posting).
But that´s not the problem - if it make a startkde I get an error message with s.th. about X. I deleted kde, so I cannot say what exactly the error message was. I´ll post it tomorrow after a new pacman -S kde :?
I made an complete re-install of Arch Linux and instead of KDE I tried to install XFce - and everythings works fine
My next steps will be to give root a password and to add a user. Then I´ll try to install KDE again and I always wanted to take a look on fluxbox 8)
At this stage I´m now totally pleased with Arch Linux
