I have installed XFCE but I cannot run it in normal user. I have both dbus and hal up and running, but when I try to fire XFCE I come to this error:
Unable to load a failsafe session Unable to determine failsafe session name. Possible causes: xfconfd isn't running (D-Bus setup problem); environment variable $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is set incorrectly (must include "/etc"), or xfce4-session is installed incorrectly.
I am running Gentoo Linux 10.0/desktop for AMD64 on a 2.6.31 Kernel
DBUS and HAL are both up and running, and my user is on both groups.$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS points to /etc/xdg
I have tried to find a solution googling and on some Linux forums, but most of the issues are referred to people not having either hal or dbus enabled, which is not my case.
If I run XFCE as root, I have no problems and the WM loads fine.
I try to start XFCE with XDM login manager and a .xsession file
Can anyone help me with that please?
Thanks in advance!
