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.

Distribution: Slackware & Slamd64. What else is there?
Hey CW, at the risk of belaboring the obvious, is your xfce directory writeable from your userid? Can you check and see if any of the settings you are making get saved properly?
I don't want to mess up my existing xfce (which I actually don't use very much) but if you don't get fixed up soon let me know and I'll get xfce from current (hopefully it doesn't need anything else in the way of packages) and see if it happens here.
Actually this has always happened to me .. I found it usually happens if I start xfce, start some other application and *then* try to change the background. If I start xfce and immediatly try to change the desktop background, it works. It's not too big of a deal since I know how to fix it easily.. but like I said .. this has always happened to me (too).
