Try creating a file in /usr/X11R6/etc/gdm/Sessions ( or maybe /usr/X11R6/etc/dm/Sessions ) called xfce.desktop with these lines in it: [Desktop Entry] Name=Xfce4 Exec=custom That "Exec=custom" tells gdm to use your regular .xinitrc file to set up the session, just like it would if you used 'startx' So you would want something like this in ~/.xinitrc: exec xfce4 I hope this helps -Adam _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
