I went through a guide to enable the right click menu, and a couple days ago I disabled the simplified desktop so I could use a regular desktop. I rebooted a couple times and the regular desktop showed up along with a few icons (home, filesystem, trash). \n\nI added my own shortcuts onto the desktop and rebooted again to make sure they stayed, and the desktop came up and the shortcuts appeared so that was fine.\nNow I reboot and I get a blue background that says "XFCE" in the middle, plus there are no icons at all on the desktop.\n\nThe only thing that changed was that I installed Pidgin IM, and that included uninstalling the lilpurple library and replacing it with a newer one. \nWould this cause the problem I am having or is it unrelated?\n\nI am still able to go into the terminal and type "xfdesktop-xfce" and my normal desktop and icons show up just like I had them before. Why can't I get this to come up automatically. \n\nI edited my /etc/xdg/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc like so:\n[code]#Client0_Command=xfdesktopnew\nClient0_Command=xfdesktop-xfce\nClient0_PerScreen=False\nClient1_Command=xfwm4\nClient1_PerScreen=False\nClient2_Command=xfce4-panel\nClient2_PerScreen=False\n#Client3_Command=/usr/share/search-bar/start-search_bar.sh\nClient3_Command=xfce-mcs-manager.new\nClient3_PerScreen=False\nClient4_Command=xfcepost\nClient4_PerScreen=False[/code]\n\nI've checked over that code a couple times and can find nothing wrong, and it was working a few time before so I am baffled. Anyone have an idea?\nIt's not that big of a deal to have to open the terminal and just type xfdesktop-xfce, but I'd like it if it was just automatic.
