Not able to run startx --logverbose 6 with error "xinit: Unable to run program xterm"


I was trying to report a problem and running “startx --logverbose 6” based on the instructions in “If you have a problem, PLEASE read this first”, but that failed to run, with the following message:

xinit : Unable to run program “xterm”: No such file or directory
Specify a program on the commandline or make sure that /user/bin is in your path.

I verified that the /user/bin is in the path environment variable.

I am running Fedora 23, nvidia driver version 361.42


I was able to fix the problem by installing xterm:

dnf install xterm
