Checking for pyxfce is as simple as trying to import the library. Try the

$ python
Python 2.3.5 (#2, Jun 13 2006, 23:12:55) 
[GCC 4.1.2 20060613 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pygtk
>>> pygtk.require("2.0")
>>> import gtk
>>> import xfce4

If the above fails for you, so you probably miss one of the required
libraries. Otherwise, it's probably the plugin's fault, but I'm not yet sure
about what could be causing it. If this is the case, I'd like you to describe it
better. Please remember that you also need pyexo, and this is not included in
pyxfce neither enabled by default on libexo's build.
