(Solved): Xfce4 install corrupted

I just installed CrunchBang #! with the intention of upgrading it to a Wheezy version.
However for now I will stay with Squeeze version as my Xfce4 installed failed..
Currently, although the Openbox works fine I am using Lxde and have installed and purged  Xfce4 3 times.
I have installed with Synaptic as well as from the commandline with apt-get.. I edited Slim.conf to allow the choice of OpenBox, Xfce4 and Lxde.
Booting into OpenBox or Lxde gives me a perfect working DE but no matter how many times I install Xfce4 the Desktop works erratically once booted into. Xfce does not even show a Desktop Mouse symbol..
I am all but ready to give up on Xfce4 on this thinkpad install...
However I also installed #! on another computer and then installed Xfce4 on the 2nd computer's XFCE4  worked perfectly...
  Both times on both computers the Xfce4 was first done via apt-get...
The failed Xfce4 Thinkpad install has had Xfce4 installed and purged several times by both the command line as well as Synaptic..

Any Ideas?

Hi sqlpython

I went through something very similar to this and got the help I needed on this thread

I would recommend following it to see if it resolves your issues with Xfce

Re: (Solved): Xfce4 install corrupted

What's the command you start xfce4 with (slim/xinitrc)?

Re: (Solved): Xfce4 install corrupted

THank You all for the Help.... much appreciated!

VastOne..

This did the trick!   smile

Try deleting these two folders entirely:
~/.cache/sessions/
~/.config/xfce4/

In fact, to be safe I renamed the Directories to OrigSessions and Origxfce4 to be safe.
...but I guess I will now delete them..

I must confess.. I am not a long time regular Xfce user.. I have been using KDE or Gnome since 1999 before that FVWM..
I used Xfce and Lxde off and on but now I am beginning to really like them as with OpenBox which perhaps I will end up with after I carry this install to a Wheezy upgrade..

Thanks to all for the suggestions.. much appreciated..
