I dont understand why the xterm window wont open, the server dosent seem to recongnize the command for some reason.

"/usr/bin/X11/xterm: Command not found."

From this, I guess xterm is located in a different place. Try to run it without the full path:

xterm -ls -display $DISPLAY

If this fails, you need to find the full path of xterm and add it into the Xstart execution command.
