Shouldn't that be:

I re-installed GTK+-2.20.1 with the optional dependency called gobject-introspection-0.6.14, as I was told to do at this site: xfce forums.

Please provide complete and correct information so others can benefit when they stumble upon this thread.

hi druuna
why xfwm4-4.8.0 giving error even when i installed all its dependencies

NOTE:the xfconf package provides libxfconf, xfconf-query and xfconfd.

so xfwm4 one of dependency is :libxfconf
so i reinstalled xfconf[third package] again ,still xfwm4 giving errors xfwm4-4.8.0 errors
can you help me plz


i think xfwm/xfwm4 is window manager[note:if xfwm/xfwm4 is same like fluxbox-i can skip this xfwm installation part right??.]
i have already installed Fluxbox-1.1.1 as window manager
i think almost i done xfce desktop environment
to start xfce i need to change/add some thing to .xinitrc file right?
my xinitrc file:
root [ ~ ]# cat .xinitrc
startfluxbox

shall i add below things to xinitrc to start xfce desktop environment:

echo startxfce4 > ~/.xinitrc
echo xfce4-session > ~/.xinitrc
is this fine???
