Slack 9.1 XFce Error


I`ve just completed the install of Slack 9.1 and I`ve set it to make XFce the default X window manager, but every time I launch X XFce gives the error
Code:
There was an error starting the panel, please contact [adress].
Clicking OK yields the error over and over. Have I goofed something?

Thanks

Ok here`s the actual error:
Code:
A Crash occurred in the panel
Please report this to the xfce4-dev@moongroup.com list
I managed to find the problem, however:
Code:
 /usr/bin/xfce4-panel : error while loading shared libraries : libstart-notifications-1.so.0  No such file or directory
Probably need to reinstall :/

All you have to do is get the startup-notification
package from the gnome directory and install it.

XFce is awesome... It's been my full time DE since I first started playing with it about 6 months ago. I never looked back to Gnome nor KDE

I'm using it too. My only complaint is that I still have to figure out how to create a button to give me the options for reboot, poweroff, and logout(only have the default logout option). I'm using KDM, if that helps...

speaking of KDM...

When I set my install to go straight into runlevel 4, it seems that initrc is not being processed. If i tell it to boot to runlevel 3, then startx, initrc IS processed. Anyone know a way around this?
