Re: how to install xfce on blfs-svn

This file is installed when gtk is compiled with gobject-introspection enabled.

Re: how to install xfce on blfs-svn

means shall i add below things to xinitrc to start xfce desktop environment:
echo startxfce4 > ~/.xinitrc
echo xfce4-session > ~/.xinitrc         note: we installed   from here  http://www.xfce.org/download/building

and i will reboot
then at
root[~]#startxfce4              note:previously i used to type 'startx' at root[~]#

is it fine???
