Starting new X session in xfce4
 
Hi all! I just switched to the XFCE window manager, and I have to say I really love it :) But one thing is missing from KDE: the "start new session" choice in the K menu, that makes X start a new session you can switch from/to using F8/F7 keys. Is there a way to have this button in the XFCE menu too? (or a script that has the same functionality). I tried looking for it, all I found was:

but none of these seems to work for me. Any other idea? ;)

I don't know if the following works in Debian, but you can give it a try:
Code:

startx -- :1
IF it works you can switch between sessions with Ctrl-F7/Ctrl-F8

I managed to make it work by installing gdm (I previously used kdm), that gives xfce this functionality. Thank you anyway :)
