Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

Hi everybody,
As you can read from the title, the title bars are missing and there are no desktop icons. Also I can't activate the windows that I would like to use. If I launch a terminal window I can't write into it because the windows seems to be not active.
All this mess doesn't occour when I run X using

startx

.

What can I do to restore the order on my desktop?

Thanks in advance,
Andrea

Re: Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

How do you start your system normally? Are you using a display manager and of so, which one?

The usual method of clearing up this situation is to delete the contents of ~/.cache/sessions while not logged into Xfce.

Re: Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

Hi ToZ, I usually start it by lightdm. I tried with

rm -r ~/.cache/sessions

in the tty but without success, there are no files or directories to be removed.

Re: Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

Can you post back the contents of your ~/.xsession-errors file on a fresh login when the title bars and icons are missing?

Which distro and version of Xfce are you running?

Re: Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

The window manager (xfwm4) is not starting up, but there are no error messages about it. Have you disabled it in some way?

- What is the content of your ~/.xinitrc file?

- Do you have an ~/.xsession file? If so, what is its content?

Can you also create a second (test) account on your computer and log in through the display manager (lightdm) to see if it works?

EDIT: Can you also post back the contents of ~/.xfce4-session.verbose-log?

Yes, I'm using Compton and with a new user there are no problems at all.

Re: Missing title bars and desktop icons (no problems with startx)

I don't have any experience with compton, but it might be the culprit. Does it replace xfwm4 or just the compositor aspect of xfwm4?

Double-check the process you used to set up compton on your main account. Maybe try reverting back to xfwm4 to see if it at least starts up.

Edit: Also check your lightdm logs in /var/log/lightdm to see if there are any errors.
