well thanks for that but it didn't work for some reason. i installed as the doc said, made an start-xfce script as recommended and put an xfce.desktop file in /etc/opt/gnome/dm/Sessions/

i'm sorry that i didn't make more clear on my thread. but there must be something else i have missed...

theres a problem with suse's kdm or whatever u use, even gdm... if u wanna start xfce4, just login to a shell terminal or virtual console to be priecise and type:

Code:
startxfce4

I have xfce4 on SuSE 9.1 Personal and it appears in GDM along with KDE, GNOME, Openbox, etc. To make it work I edited the xfce.desktop file in /opt/gnome/share/xsessions and in the lines beginning with "Exec" and "TryExec" I replaced "xfce" with "startxfce4". I don't know if this is the correct way to add xfce to GDM, but it worked for me...
