Sorry newbie here, you'll have to excuse my plain english vocabulary.
I'm using xfce4. As for starting, it is definitely not a command line: when I switch on I have this xunbuntu splash (pitch black with dard blue xubuntu) that indicates what's loading, then an unbuntu pinkish screen asking for username, then password, with an option for which session I want.
As for .xsession-errors, I've no idea what you're talking about. Sorry I'm a newbie. On my way to look for it, though.

PS I'm top posting because we started that way. Sorry.
