slackware current - xfce 4.10 shows completely blank black screen


xfce 4.10 is running though as I can hit Alt-F4 and the exit menu appears and then click on LOGOUT.

But nothing else shows on the screen.

Here is the .xsession-errors file for a user:

Off hand it looks like libexo-1.so.0 and libgarcon-1.so.0 are missing from the xfce4 packages....

Good suggestion.

I install all packages that start with "lib*"

libexo-1.so.0 and libgarcon-1.so.0 are now where to be found...

fvwm2 works with no problems.

following which criteria?
if you want to select what to install and what not, it's assumed that you know what you're doing...
otherwise a full install is advised.

Thanks Willy!

That fixed the problem.

These packages are misnamed as they actually do include shared runtme libraries:

libexo-1.so.0.0.0
libgarcon-1.so.0.0.0

And the packages should be called

libexo-0.8.0-i486-1.txz and
libgarcon-0.2.0-i486-1.txz

I don't load all packages.

Fvwm2 and xdm work fine for me, but sometimes I use xfce.

That isn't how packages are named. Generally Slackware just favours upstream naming conventions -- other distros sometimes split packages into lib versions but that isn't the case with Slackware. For example, atk is not named libatk and gmp is not named libgmp. Both the exo and garcon packages exist in the newly created xfce/ directory, so if you want XFCE to work...then obviously you will need to install everything in that directory (unless you want to troubleshoot). They should not be moved to l/ since they are XFCE-specific and they should not be renamed since they are named according to upstream. I don't see a problem here.

Thanks for your post.

I found several more packages missing from my xfce installation.

Most of the time I use fvwm2 to avoid complex window managers with lots of pieces.
