$DISPLAY not set

Got 11.4 MS 2 working except not GUI

Was trying to start KDE root-console …

Message: $DISPLAY is not set

Where/which file do I have to edit


When starting (in console-mode) Xorg the system
is looking in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d…coming up with msg:

(EE) Failed to load module “nvidia” (module does not exist, 0)

I am not sure what is missing. On my installed 11.3 is no reference re nvidia in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d everyting refers to “Default” ?!?

any idea … Thanks Otto

You probably need to install the proprietary drivers for your graphics.

I had the same problem. Booting to init 3 and reinstalling the drivers again fixed the problem.
