I cannot change windoow, I have to go to file, exit to close the window so I can view any other open window....why is this so? Another thing is to change my desktop from 1 to 2 or 3 or 4...this does not work.
You are running xfce without a window manager.
instead of typing "startx", try typing "startxfce"
Or in .xinitrc, try changeing "exec xfce" to "exec startxfce"
When you exec xfce you are not running everything you need.
