    Default GUI issue

    After logging onto root i try running the 'startx' command and get the following error message:
    "/root/.ICEauthority KDE is unable to start."
    It's odd considering it all worked fine before and now this. I'm not too sure where to go from here some help would be great haha thanks in advance.

    I got something similar recently off a bad SD card that corrupted the filesystem on it, you might look into that (i.e. reinstall/recreate the system and see if it fixes!)
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    Huh i located the .ICEauthority file for my root user using the ls -la | less command and everything from permissions to the file modified date are in question marks. The same goes for the .Xauthority file.
