Flickering Screen in X

Wed Jul 01, 2015 8:23 pm

My Pi works just fine on the command line, however if I startx I get this flickering screen with the trash can but no other icons to work with.

Same issue even if I remote into it with VNC which surprised me a bit.

Anyone have any ideas?

Any chance you are running as root or a user other than pi? Don't run startx or VNC as root. If it is a new user make sure that you have added your user to the correct groups.
