I have now added /usr/local/bin to the PATH of /etc/profile.  Typing startx 
still gives the same error message: afterstep: no such file or directory.  
Changing the .xinitrc file as well didn't help either.

While there are only executable files in /usr/local/bin, none of them is 
named "afterstep."  Could this be the problem?  Startx is trying to execute 
a file that doesn't exist by that name?  Or is there something else that is 
wrong?  I am grateful for all help.
