Default User startx error .

Code:
waiting for X server to shut down .FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.

How does your .xinitrc script looks like? What about ~/.Xdefaults. Do you actually run current?

If you find ~/.serverauth.n files after having exited X, this is an indication of previous crashes or abnormal terminations which will confuse the X server at the next invocation.

Simply delete these files.

I found the problem. I created the .xinitrc file with empty setup and startx so the problem exists then i delete the .xinitrc file and it works again.
