Rhythmbox under Xfce in Breezy.

Thanks to all who responded to my post about Rhythmbox giving errors
rather than sound under Xfce installed as a session option on Breezy.
(Not the Xubuntu version with Xfce by default.)
The Linux sound swamp is still a confusing place; two approaches seemed
to give results: manually starting ESD from the terminal or selecting
'Launch Gnome Services' on Xfce session startup.
As the latter is the easiest to do, it is the route I am taking for now.
For any others with similar problems; go to the Xfce panel, open the
settings manager, then the Sessions and Startup item and finally check
Launch Gnome services on the advanced tab. (I seemed to need a reboot
before it worked, which I wouldn't have expected.)
Your Mileage May Vary...
