Just a quicky:
First, the tilde (~ ) character is Unix/Linux shorthand for home directory.
The command should be:
less .xession-errors

The ~/.xsession-errors is created when you start the X Window system,
and is cumulative. It can contain a lot of data. Most likely it will
contain a clue that can help you solve your problem.

I don't know what you mean about the "x" file.
