I do not think a new subject needs to be started concerning this
issue. I'm not sure if this on my end or yours but I'm seeing 3
separate threads (Subjects: Display problem, Log In Failure, and LogIn
failure) started concerning this problem. I'm using the
unsophisticated web based gmail, but for all other mailing lists I'm
subscribed to it handles threaded conversations fine.

T H,

Please, stop creating new subjects. I think the list has been informed
of your problem under the 3 separate threads (except perhaps Charlie).

I've never heard of such a problem (except maybe your monitor can't
handle the lower resolution).

Try this though: when you get to the log in screen, Select your user,
then on the bottom, there should be a 'Session' field, click the
drop-down menu and select 'xterm', then type in your password, and
login, you should be presented with a terminal.

Once, there enter the following commands into the terminal:

$ mv .config/xfce4 DOTconfig_xfce4
$ mv .cache/xfce4 DOTcache_xfce4
$ exit

That should log you out, then log back in, remembering to change the
Session field to 'Xfce4 Session' after you select your user but before
you enter your password.

Those two commands should give you a stock xfce4 session back.

Love in Jesus Christ, John Alfred Nathanael Chee
