    Question Startx: user login problem

    I use backtrack 4 final
    #uname -a
    Linux bt 2.6.30.9 #1 SMP Tue Dec 1 21:51:08 EST 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

    every time i want to "startx", i need to login as root.(not in user). How can i just login into startx with user permission??also my kdm is "corrupted" by .Xauthority. It says "no permission or something like that.

    Hi zer0nymous,

    To install kdm use "apt-get install kdm-kde3". Everything should work fine after that.

    Not working/same.
    This is what on my Konsole:

    # apt-get install kdm-kde3
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    kdm-kde3 is already the newest version.

    Have you installed it before? If so, how?
    Also, have you activated kdm in the control panel of backtrack?
    If the above still doesn't work, you could try reinstalling it (apt-get remove kdm-kde3, followed by the install command).

    so i think you need to create user proper way:
    useradd -d /home/youruser -g users -m -s /bin/bash youruser
    passwd youruser

    hope this helps
