Wa-hey! It worked!
All I had to do was replace "twm" with "startkde" in the
/.vnc/xstartup file, as you suggested.

You probably want to replace "twm" with "startkde". If you still see
problems, ensure that you're not also logged in on the console of the Linux
system with KDE - off the top of my head, I can't remember whether KDE
refuses to run two sessions on the same machine for the same user, or
whether that's only a Gnome problem.

OK, I know this issue has been raised before, and that I probably
shouldn't have to raise it again, but here goes . . .
I'm using VNC between Windows XP and Linux (Mepis). I can get the XP
desktop to appear properly on Linux, but at the XP end, all I
can get is
the Linux console with a grey background. After reading about a few
similar problems in the mailing list archives and elsewhere,
with the xstartup and .xinitrc files. Specifically, I replaced the
'twm' entry with 'kdm' in xstartup, and in .xinitrc I added
an entry for
startkde, as well as something else that I can't remember
right now (I
removed the line). Nothing so far has worked.
I really want to get this to work. Can anyone suggest some
steps that I
should try? By the way, I am a complete newbie, so please
assume that I
know next to nothing about Linux!
