    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64

    After login
    $ startx
    Code:
    xauth: creating new authority file /home/satimis/.serverauth.4535
    
    X: cannot stat /etc/X11/X (No such file or directory), aborting.
    giving up.
    xinit:  Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
    xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.
    
    $ ls /etc/X11/
    Code:
    rgb.txt  
    xinit
    xkb
    Xresources
    Xsession
    Xsession.d
    Xsession.options
    Xwrapper.config
    
    Whether I need to create xorg.conf manually? Is there a sample for this server?


    TIA

    Type xorgconfig or xorgsetup to generate your own xorg.conf file.

    Hi folks,


    Tks for your advice.

    My problem was caused by w/o X packages installed.

    After running;

    $ sudo apt-get install xorg xterm menu fluxbox firefox
    $ sudo update-menus
    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    X starts with a light-weight desktop running.
