why not? doesn't 'xfce4' appear in the list of sessions?
No, I'm afraid not.
I've got default, default gnome, and a couple of fail safe options.
I've established that they are installed through the packet manager, and
also by mouse clicking almost off screen, I manage to get an openbox sub
menu up which gives me a browser, a terminal, and a couple of other options.
It looks, from the tint of the screen, as though I have the background
of a GUI present, but nothing to go with it. Perhaps I need to install
gnome-sessions? that will give me that.
There have been another couple of posts, and one has suggested an
install of 'xfce-sessions' which I didn't know about, so I'll try that.
Being very much a newby doesn't help either.
