Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just switched over to Xfce4 (/usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4) yesterday and everything worked fine, i customized the desktop etc
Today i decided just to test out nautilus as a file manager and portinstalled it
After it installed it took control of my desktop etc, but I decided I did not like it and uninstalled it. I then restarted my computer and whenever I load XFCE now I have a gray gridline sort of background (kind of like what X server looks like after you test it for first time). So i ran:
and everythign returned to normal my desktop picture returned etc. I assumed that it was because when I installed nautilus it killed xfdesktop and when i logged out it saved the session w/o xfcd-desktop running. So i rebooted computer again after saving session, figuring that my desktop would be back to normal. However, this is not the case and the gray background is still there, and I have to run xfdesktop. In setting> display, any change such as wallpaper, that I make does not go into effect, and if i right click on my desktop, the regular menu does not appear :\. I see no errors when i close the session. I just finished entirely rebuilding xfce:
i did pkg_cutleaves -RF removed XFCE4 and then did portinstall x11-wm/xfce4, I restarted X and I still got the gray background ! I did xfdesktop and my background picture returned.... This is rather strange, and I really dont know what to do. I thought for sure that a complete rebuild would fix the problem. Is there anything else I should do, how would i completely wipe out XFCE and all configs/dirs, etc? I removed the XFCE configs but that didnt do anything.
