SOLVED: XFWM4 doesn't start - XFEC 4.4, OpenSuse 10.2

Hi all,

I have just installed XFCE 4.4 on OpenSuse 10.2.

All works fine apart from the fact that xfwm4 does not start automatically when I log in.

I have to open a terminal and type xfwm4, after which everything works properly.

Any ideas what might be going wrong or how I can fix it?

Many thanks

Tom

Start Xfce using Run Program (Alt + F2) -> xfwm4 and exit Xfce with saving you're session afterwards. If this doesn't work: run xfwm4 inside a terminal and see is there are some weird warnings/errors.

Hi - I solved this by adding xfwm4 into autostarted applications.

I think I have bigger issues though - when I initially did the installation using the GUI Installer, it failed half way through. So I decided instead to install the OpenSuse 10.2 rpms. Which seemed to work, but I now realise I have some missing components (I only have 12 options in the Settings Manager window, I believe I should have more than that...)

So I think I have a kind of half installed system!

Might uninstall and try again....

Thanks for your help though...

Tom
