They did...............

While at the GUI logon screen press the three key combo of Ctrl+Alt+F1
Log on as yourself (supply the password when asked)
Type; switchdesk xfce
Type; logout
Press the three key combo of Ctrl+Alt+F7
Log in as you normally do.

See 'man switchdesk' minus the single quote marks for the details.

Or you can click the 'session' (or whatever it's called) button on GDM/KDM choose xfce4 and login, works for me...
