    Xfce session error on Linux

    Hi,

    I'm using Ubuntu Linux 5.04; first I went to the Synaptic Package Manager, and "marked" xfce4, but that also included loads of other packages. I downloaded them all, but the xfce-panel had an md5sum mismatch, so Synaptic didn't download it or any other packages. So, I just went into terminal because I got slightly annoyed with Synaptic (lol). In terminal, I did:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4
    That installed quite a lot of stuff, but not everything (check out this for the result of "...--fix-missing"). Then, I logged out and logged back into my user using Xfce. All of a sudden, I got a warning saying that my account was trying to logout in less than 10 seconds of loading Xfce, which meant that there was an error. I managed to save the error - here it is:
    Code:
    /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
    /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w /var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/lib/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "jk9"
    /etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
    /usr/bin/startxfce4: X server already running on display :0
    Agent pid 20138
    Agent pid 20143
    Agent pid 20143 killed
    The results of "ps 20138" and "ps 20143":
    Code:
    jk9@ubuntu:~$ ps 20138
      PID TTY      STAT   TIME COMMAND
    20138 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent
    jk9@ubuntu:~$ ps 20143
      PID TTY      STAT   TIME COMMAND
    The process 20143 doesn't exist, because, as you can see, it has been killed.

    Can someone please tell me how I can get Xfce working on Ubuntu? From the screenshots I've seen of it, I'll like it quite a lot, and it's also not as power-hungry as WMs like GNOME and KDE. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,

    Lol my dear friend Egaladeist...I finally gave up on Xfce and installed Fluxbox (which is actually very nice indeed)! Well....I didn't exactly give up on Xfce...in fact I'm following the second link right now! Too many dependancies (which are pretty large) to download tonight, and I'm very tired, so I'll carry on with it tomorrow and post up to tell you guys if it worked. Once again Eg, thank you very much!
