Having problems with installing xfce4 with apt-get
Did you check if this package is available in the version of Debian you are using? There is no information in the post as to what version you're using.
Did you perform an apt-get update/upgrade before attempting to install?
IIRC, XFCE4 is only available in Sarge (Testing) and Sid (Unstable)
You can look in:
debian.org>Packages>your version>X Window System Software
in the terminal:
apt-cache search <name of package>
apt-cache show <name of package>
IOW, if you are using Woody, you are not going to get it, unless there is a backport for it. Check apt-get.org or backports.org .
apt-cache search xfce4 gave me a lot of hits. Among them was the xfce4 package.
I'm really stuck...
How about you run something like:
apt-get install xfce4 xfwm4 xfdesktop4
apt-get install xfce4*
and keep adding to that list until it installs?
Sometimes all the dependencies aren't installed automagically, and you need to specify some yourself.
If you are in Sid do a:
apt-get -f dist-upgrade
see if that helps you. :)
