Repair XFCE installation with '--reinstall' ??

Hallo !

I have a XFCE installation with many difficulties. Will preserve a
'apt-get install --reinstall xfce4'
everything else intact?

Thanks anyway,
Manfred

All this will do is re-install the Xfce system files. It might fix the problem if the problem is a result of corrupted system files.

You have another post here about an xfsettingsd crash through vnc. I just posted a reply to it. If that is what you are trying to fix, then no, this command won't help you.

also a better way would be to remove xfce first:

eg:

aptitude purge  '~n^libxfce4.*' '~n^libexo.*' '~n^libgarcon.*'

and to reinstall it by installing the meta package "xfce4" or the xfce task "task-xfce-desktop"
