Sorry I forgot to mention that this is the second thing I tried
actually. I noticed the permissions for 3 other directory and the
.ICE-unix under /'tmp as root:wheel I ran chown -R user:user on them
it got rid of most the errors but still, I was getting an error about
that .ICE-unix directory. the third thing I did is I rm -rf everything
under /tmp and started kde again. Less errors and still showing the
.ICE-unix error and my previous attachment was the least error I was
able to get.
Follow up: what about the Modes "1024x758" why the word Modes is
unknown to xorg.conf ? and if it is. What should I use instead to
increase the resolution. At least to be able to run blackbox smoothly
till I get kde errors fixed.
thanks again for your help.
