xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons
 
Basically what it says, xfdesktop does not show any disk icons except home,trash file system, I have recompiled xfce 4.10 but no go I have tried all the obvious configuration stuff- turning desk icon on/off, installed icon sets, removed session etc, it doesn't matter if I use thunar or spacefm ( my preferred FM ), I assume that this is either a config problem or a service that xfdesktop relies on but I just can't track it, I have googled 'till I'm blue in the face!

These are my installed packages ( all compiled from source with no errors )

Kernel is 3.4.7
AMD Athlon 2

Mounting disks either internal or external is not a problem they just don't show up on my desktop.
Any help would be appreciated, I like my desktop icons!

Is there anybody out there?

This is a polkit/dbus/consolekit config problem downgraded dbus to 1.4.20 installed consolekit and recompiled all and it seems to be working so solved ( sort of )
