How do you launch your session ? With xinitrc file provides by

My own .xinitrc, which is just

  /usr/local/bin/startxfce4


What's your login manager ? You must use login manager which supports
sysutils/consolekit. Like x11/slim, x11/gdm (there's an issue with
x11/xdm).


None, just startx.  Aha, that is why people are using ck-launch-session.
Using that to run startxfce4, it works, and without sudo.

Ok, you must add in your xinitrc file `ck-launch-session' before
xfce4-session (don't use startxfce4).
You can look at /usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc file. It provides
this case (line 84 to 107).

You can test with xinitrc file provided by x11-wm/xfce4-session, and
then adjust your own.

Why should startxfce4 not be used?
