Re: Xfce question

Hi Simon,
You were right, the xfwm4 wasn't running. As soon as, I started xfwm4 from the xterm the buttons reappeared on  my windows like magic.
I've learnt something again.
Thanks a lot.

Well that looks like you're just not running xfwm4. Are you sure it is

What does ps aux|grep xfwm4 say when you run it?

Does /var/log/XFree86.0.log list any errors running xfwm4? What happens
if you try to run xfwm4 manually from an xterm?
