Problems with XFCE-4.8
 
I'm using Robbie's XFCE-4.8 packages on both my laptop & desktop. Both machines are kept up to date with -current. All works well on the laptop, which I am using now. But on the desktop none of the windows have a title bar or the associated control buttons (minimize, maximize/restore, close). Also, Applications Menu->Settings->Window Manager/Window Manager Tweaks menus are grayed out/inaccessible. This is bound to be something simple I have just missed, but I can't figure it out. Can someone help?
Regards,
Bill

That sounds like something besides xfwm4 is running as the window manager...

You're right, Robby, xfwm4 is not running. If I run
Code:

xfwm4 --daemon
after XFCE starts, all is well. I haven't figured (yet) why it isn't starting, but will continue to probe.

Start it and then save your session, and all should be fine after that.
