Talking xfce4.6.2 desktop without icons and background


Hello, I've installed slack 13.37 with xfce 4.6.2 desktop, after to install netbeans, when I rebooted, icons and background has missing, also no right-click on desktop. The screen is black,only when I run "xfdesktop &" it loads images and icons on desktop.
Thanks

Well, that's strange... Check the file ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml, it should have a section that loads xfdesktop:

Code:
<property name="Client3_Command" type="array">
  <value type="string" value="xfdesktop"/>
</property>
Alternatively, you can copy the file /etc/xfce/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml to your local directory (mentioned above). Make a backup of the file if you need to.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,Diantre, I did the following steps:

-Wrote "xfdesktop &" from terminal, that load the icons and background of desktop.
-Then "Menu---Settings---Desktop" and configured "icon type:File/launcher icons", after reboot a few times, today,the desktop goes fine.
