Yes, xterm works fine when I start Reflection X manually.

You must mean the "startx" script.  I had a look at it doesn't seem
that anything needs to be changed...

OK, I made the symlink to Reflection X but I still have the problem.

This is a good idea but I don't think this is the problem.  I can
see that the Reflection X server is getting started when I run startx.
This was true even before I made the symlink.

I'm curious, does startx/xinit work for you with Exceed?  One would
think that we should both be having the same problem.  Don't forget to put
a .xserverrc file in $HOME with a pointer to your Exceed server.

Thanks again,
Jim Grishaw.
