This time I noted the error messages on a piece of paper, and this is what
was displayed:
*error: Unable to lock /home/(User Name)/.hplip/hp-systray.lock. Is
hp-systray already running ?**
*(Repeated thrice in red font)*
*kdeinit: sending SIGTERM to children*
*(Repeated thrice - plain font)*
*.   (some other messages)*
*Original exception was: hp-systray: cannot connect to X server :0.0*

Also the location of .xsession-errors is /home(User Name)/

(The command syntax mentioned above by David Mohr did not work)

The .xsession-errors file had this (current date & time):
