Ok, i started with a base install of Arch .7 (Wombat) and X.org.
Since i'm a noob I installed KDE with the command 'pacman -Sy kde'
Everything downloaded and installed properly, but I'm just wondering how to set up XDM and whatnot so that it actually runs KDE. Currently when I startX, it loads some wierd GUI with xterm.
Also, it doesn't seem that the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf exists. (which I will need to modify so that I can set up the nVidia drivers)
OK, I set everything up.... unfortunately, X is reporting errors.
Apparently it's having issues with my mouse.
"cannot open device /dev/mouse"
"(ww) no core pointer registered"
I just have a basic Logitech PS/2 wheelmouse. Is there a way to find out if I should set X to point somewhere else?
oh oh i know this one
change /dev/mouse to /dev/input/mice
[edited by Dusty: change dev/input mice to /dev/input/mice]
it's also possible to use "search" in phpbb.
welcome to arch!
Edit: You start kde from /home/Bryan/.xinitrc with this line
using $ startx
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
