I'm using Xfce 4.6 on ubuntu 8.04.
There is only a arrow on the desktop every time when I login by gdm. It seems that nothing starts but the xfce-session, but when I login again, everything is OK!
If I logout or reboot, such strange events repeat. I have tried to delete the directory .cache before gdm runs the xfce-session. It doesn't work.
How to fix it? Thanks for concerning.
It's easy. In your home creates a file named. / Session as follows:
and inside it put this:
exec /bin/sh /usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc
And close the sesion..
Thank you, but it doesn't work either.
I set "Display chooser on login" in "Session Manager settings" and set up a new session, then if I choose the new session, I can log in successfully.
Now,I have to choose a session every time, how to remove the default session?
If you use Xfce, do not use GDM in the end you install many packages that will not use Gnome. Slim and used as you see it works. If you do not work so hixiste only deletes the file. Xsession point and ...
