I'm sorry for forgetting that. But here's the output.


jannis at nebelsee ~ 533 $ xfdesktop

** (xfdesktop:14927): CRITICAL **: XfceDesktopMenu init failed (The 
XfceDesktopM enu module could not be loaded: libxfcegui4.so.3: cannot 
open shared object file : Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden)

** (xfdesktop:14927): WARNING **: xfdesktop: Unable to initialise menu 
module. R ight-click menu will be unavailable.


libxfcegui4.so.3 doesn't exist in /usr/local/lib (where I installed the 
Xfce libraries to). However, libxfcegui4.so.4 exists. Although I'm a 
developer (not of Xfce) by myself I didn't read so much about library 
naming in Linux. Is anybody able to explain the problem?
