Running KDE with Apple's X11
Authored by: GaelicWizard on Nov 16, '03 03:59:33PM

Do NOT edit the xinitrc file in the X11R6 folder! Copy it to ~/.xinitrc and edit that one! You do NOT need to edit a system file! And you do NOT need to be root!

Also, you might find it neccessary to turn off the "show icons on desktop" in the kontrol panel, that is likely the only problem you're experiencing, as it is the only one I am having (with quartz-wm). Also, if you use kwin then it is best to run it (with icons on) in full screen mode, not in rootless as the functionality is quite diff from quartz-wm.

Running KDE with Apple's X11

I did say to use fullscreen mode. And the problem with quartz-wm was that no windows were responding to clicks. Besides, if you're using KDE you really shouldn't be using anything other than kwin.

BTW, the reason I said to edit the default .xinitrc file was because I read somewhere that if you add your own .xinitrc file the default one isn't run, and it has some other stuff in it (the .Xmodmap stuff) that you need.

Which is exactly why you need to *copy* the original. :-)

The windows not responding to clisks is actually because of the "show icons on desktop" setting, believe it or not. It is a known bug.
