View Full Version : [xfce] Xfce back to login

Xfce Version: 4.4
Your Distribution and Version: Ubuntu 10.04 (Alpha3)

After an update to Ubuntu 10.04, I _WAS_ able to start xfce, however, after a bit I was unable to. Everytime I start either XFCE Session or Xubuntu, the screen goes black for about 3-4 seconds, and goes straight back to GDM.

Whilst in Ubuntu, the command "startxfce" runs XFCE along with GNOME (It's rather interesting I'll admit).
Whilst in Xterm, the same occurs.

I deleted the xfce folder in .config in hopes to reset the lot, however nothing has come of it. I also tried to remove, and re-install the xubuntu-desktop package, but only about 4 packages totaling 40KB were removed.

I've created a new user and was able to start xfce that way, thinking this was the remedy, I deleted the xfce folders from .config and .cache, yet, the same error still occurs.

Why does Ubuntu 10.04 still include Xfce 4.4? 4.6 was released in February.

It did not come with it, or at least not to my knowledge. I had it installed previously.

UPDATE:I just realized I have version 4.6
