I just installed Arch Linux. I have set up xorg and can start the xserver with xclock and xterm.
I have also installed plasma-desktop.
As per the KDE - ArchWiki I only need to append
exec startkde to the
.xinitrc file. I did that, but upon
startx the plasma desktop doesn't run and X server terminates.
When trying to run
startkde on the tty I get
$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to X server.
Note: This is kde-plasma without a display manager. I want to run it from the console manually.
It will be difficult to add log files since they are on the other machine.
