    What does it say when you use the startx command?

    If you tried to install your graphic cards drivers before this happened (and assuming it's a nvidia like you mentioned in another thread), in sequence as root use the commands
    nvidia-xconfig

    sax2 -r
    Special effects <- KDE 4.2 Showing off
    More KDE -> PINK KDE

    The command
    Code:
    nvidia-xconfig
    is executed automatically in the nvidia installer, but the
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
    isn't. Also try out this one.
