 i already had this line:

gave me a error of duplicate id field

(Note: no -nodaemon as in case of xdm)

this one did nothing for me, but that has probably to do something with the
error above

I have that line. But i'm using my own program for loading programs at boot
time, so i wanted to add those lines: (just shell script)
kdm &
startx &
it does start KDE with a login screen, but the three main KDE programs are
not starting, and that's my problem.
how can i get those starting (kwin, kicker, kdesktop) ??
do i need to add those to my script, if so, where?

Thanks in Advance
