XFCE4 needs to run a series of apps, in sequence. The way it _currently_ does this is to modify the user's .xsession file through script designed for that purpose. The way it *should* do it is with, say, a "start-xfce4" script, which contains the contents currently created by "xfce_setup", and which could be invoked either by a DM or as the last line of an .xsession file. Should I file a bug? Peace. -- Karsten M. Self <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://kmself.home.netcom.com/ What Part of "Gestalt" don't you understand? Look before you leap.
