Hi folks, I have been beavering away trying to get XFCE working just right on my C3200, but have been having major troubles from the outset.
It all started after installing using Chero's guide on his site (very nice, thank you chero), started the gui and all looked fine until I noticed the lack of the xfce panel - the blank task bar at the top was the only thing on the screen. Not a very nice greeting!
I then removed all xfce packages and reinstalled just the base xfce package but this time to the root ( / ) instead of my internal disk. This time the panel appeared and all was good.... until I went ahead and installed chero's recommended packages - nothing fancy - and next time I started X the panel was gone again.
At this point, running xfce4-panel from the terminal gave errors about missing libxfcegui4.so.4 - so I installed the libxfcegui4 package and then it complained of libxfce4util - which I duly installed. Next error was something about icons so I installed xfce4-icon-theme which then allowed me to start the panel.
Now I have a panel, it seems not to be the original one I had, as I have no way of adding the xfce menu icon, and the add item menu just looks totally different. Also in the xfce panel settings page, none of the options have any effect!! So it looks like this panel is disconnected from the usual xfce one.
Also I can't add the disk mounter, or the pdaxrom menu etc etc. and it's just not working as it should - any ideas folks?
