I installed XFCE4 from the Ubuntu reps. I'm running Kubuntu 7.04. After I login to the XFCE GUI, it immediately hangs and all I have is the wallpaper and mouse. I can still move the mouse around and switch to different tty's.
Switching to tty1 and killing KDM and then running command - startxfce4, does log me into the GUI but I am just met with a checkered black&white background which looks like X failed to start. I can then switch back to tty and run the command as root and it works.
I have no idea what the issue is here and any help would be greatly appreciated.
I fixed it by install xfdesktop4.
