Apple's X11 + KDE, using 10.3.5 - Please help!! :-(

Hi there!

System software 10.3.5

I'm a complete noob when it comes to Unix, so besided the ls, cd , rm, su commands i know nothing. Smilie

Recently, i wanted to dabble into UNIX and alternate GUI's for the Mac. From pass experience I enjoyed using KDE, so with a few questions some one directed to FINK. Well... it's doing it's job and I've since installed KDEBASE but on running i've encountered some problems. Hope someone can help me.

I use this line to start KDE,


Once everything finish loading, i can see the task bar, a small icon in the top left corner and the startup tip window. On clicking on anything, the window just flashes, it appears to be completely no response and yet according to Apple's X11 it's still running. Does anyone know what i need to do to make it work?

What you want to do is install kde in fink by the package "bundle-kde". After that is done, you can do "startx" or "startkde".
