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?
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...
Here is a list of all the buttons in the mcs manager, provided by which package:
xfce-mcs-plugins: Display, File manager, Keyboard, Mouse, Screen saver (is you have one), User Interface
xfwm4: Window Manager, Window Manager Tweaks, Workspaces and Margins
notification-daemon-xfce: Notification Settings
xfce4-session: Splash Screen, Sessions and Startup
exo: Preferred Applications
I only have the following buttons in the mcs manager:
Sessions and Statup
I have all of those packages installed:
tubby:/home/tome/Downloads # rpm -qa | grep xf
tubby:/home/tome/Downloads # rpm -qa | grep exo
Any ideas why the plugins aren't showing up even though they are seemingly installed?
