I have installed KDE and qt for Cygwin, but do not know how to start it.

I tried those commands such as "startx", "xinit" or "X", it only gives me the
cygwin default X environment.

Any expert please tell me how to start KDE ?

thx!

Problem is that the XWin server either isn't running, isn't allowing the client(s) (if you just start "XWin&" followed by "startkde"), or is already running a windowmanager (default is twm:-).
Simplest is probably to make a copy of the startxwin.sh script and edit that (replace the call to twm with startkde)... There is a startxwin.bat also that is similar but with ... cmd32/dos syntax/semantics.
