As root? No good idea. You should run from a !root user account.

No, it works when you startx from after a "normal" login, too.
I do know that, it's my setting at the moment. :-)

So if you would create a normal user account and add these files:

1. ~/.xsession

        source ~/.cshrc
        exec ~/.xinitrc

2. ~/.xinitc

        exec xfwm

Give them +x permissions. The first file allows you to inherit your
settings from the C shell (~/.cshrc) into your X session when started
from XDM or another display manager.

After login, you can use the

        % startx

command to run your XFCE session.

But in fact, running as root can't be the reason why console
switching doesn't seem to work correctly, I believe...
