G'day there Jasper,

> What you're seeing happens when xfdesktop is not running.

    Of course!!!

       It's obvious now that you've pointed it out to me =)

          Thanks for that.

    Yup. I got error messages. Thousands of them. Actually, it was the 
same one over and over. It said:

"*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice"

    It said it lots & lots of times. Over & over again.

    It certainly did. I thought I had everything working & recently 
(yesterday) set xfce to save the session automatically on closing, so 
there was no option given. Of course I was in a hurry to do everything 
at once (wives just have no patience when it comes to husbands on the 
computer) so I didn't even notice that there was no background piccy 
until later.

    I've now got the background picture again, but no rightclick menu. 
I'm off to have a play with it again, but if you have any ideas I'm only 
too happy to hear them.

Thanks once again
