GUI issue

Hi guys, I have a little problem which I have partly solved. I am running Linux Mint Debian Edition. I installed it with XFCE. Everything has been running great until I decided I wanted to play around with Gnome a little bit. Well after getting everything running, I logged out of my gnome session and tried logging back into the XFCE session. I was able to log in without a problem but the title bars were not there on any windows. I was able to get them back by running the command "sudo xfwm4 --daemon". The part I don't know how to do though is have this command automagically run when I login. Is there a file that I can modify to run this command when I login to my XFCE session? Thank you in advanced for your time.

It's been a few years since I've used XFCE (now I use Xsesson + xdm + Xmonad) but I think this is what you are looking for:
