View Full Version : [xfce] xfce bringing blank screes

June 6th, 2008, 12:44 PM
I am running Ubuntu, but I installed xfce. Every time I log into an xfce session, it just brings a black screen, but the mouse works. I then hit <Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> and login again and this time it works fine. This is repeatable every time.

I re-installed xfce, but it didn't change anything.

Any ideas?

"That error you got states that dbus is not running. XFCE needs dbus to communicate between the various components and applications. Run /etc/init.d/dbus and see if that helps. After running dbus run xfce4-session to start your session." ---quote

Good luck.
