    Ok got that fixed finally, my path was all messed up :confused:

    So X was working for a while and now I have a new problem :(

    When I try and start X with KDE as the window manager it freezes on startup at the "initializing peripereals" icon. I changed the default window manager to twm, i think it was, and X loads. So I am assuming something is wrong with my KDE setup now but I don't know where to begin looking.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
