Hi everyone, this is my first message on the forum
I'm trying XFCE (xfce4-session 4.8.2) on a Mandriva 2011 (kernel 3.0.3) and I noticed the absence of icons on the desktop ; Also a right-click on it will produce no effect, is this normal ?
No Alt-Tab to switch between open windows too, now I'm pretty sure *that* is not normal...
Apart from that everything is OK, windows have title bars, my panel stays in place, and everything is fast (and I mean wow) as a firefly.
I'm I right assuming that Thunar is responsible for the displaying of icons on the desktop ? Then what process is in charge of the Alt-tab ?
How can I restore those two features, especially alt-tab (I can live without icons on the desktop) ? Please help, I really like/need XFCE, KDE/QT has gone mad, it's ridiculous

It sounds like xfdesktop isn't running. Try Alt+F2 and starting it by running:
Wow, guess what, it wasn't even installed. And the keyboard shortcuts were not configured either (I guess when Mandriva say they don't support other desktops than KDE they mean it ) ; Thank you very much, now everything is dandy
