    Hi I have Emulationstation on lubuntu linux. I run this program at start up and edited /etc/profile with this and put it to the bottom and save [ -n "${SSH_CONNECTION}" ] || emulationstation
    I have startx as a menu item and i press that and when i do the screen turns black with an X as a cursor. It comes back into emulationstation a few seconds. When i exit emulationstation the desktop shows. How can i fix the problem of the menu item? I want when i press the item which has startx as a batch script to start the desktop. I was told to a file called .xinitrc in my home directory i put that file in with exec lxde and i still got a black screen.
