I installed LXDE on an ACER ASPIRE netbook. First I followed the Gentoo Wiki for installing Gentoo on the Acer, including X. X started fine after this, mouse detected, screen OK.
Next I followed the LXDE Wiki page for Gentoo. Didn't get any errors. As for starting I emerged XDM. According to the Wiki it should list LXDE. When I started XDM I got a loging screen and this brought me directly to standard X, not LXDE. As it was impossible to exit (even ctrl+alt+backspace) I repowered the pc and had some problems with lock files on the /tmp. Cleared those.
Now if I start X with startx I get a black screen with the mouse cursor, nothing else. I looked for ~/.xinit.rc but this doesn't exsist (didn't find one in /etc/X11 either). Running "startlxde" from promt does nothing. I have to break it with ctrl+C.Xdm gives the standard X (grey background with "xsm" and terminal window, working mouse.
Any ideas on how to get lxde running? Is there a template .xinit.rc?
