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.

From the subforum here, you can figure I'm a newb. I think this is easy for you:
I just installed xfce4. At first i worked well. I really like the desktop menu. Now its gone and clicking on the dekstop takes no effect at all. I think some application like nautilus is hiding the usual desktop, since the background image has gone also. I thought i'd drop my pstree pullout here, as I'm not able to figure out which task is the thief.
my guess is that xfdesktop isn't getting started so you could try running it from a terminal then save your session when you log out so it gets started again on log in. Or you could clear out your session info which i think is in ~/.config/xfce4.
