Yeah, I think you need an active=True session, and maybe only one
session at all.

I don't think so, but starting CK unconditionally while there might be
another session running may lead to troubles.

Which is doomed to fail, because startxfce4 has no way (and shouldn't,
anyway) to know everything to start. In Debian, we
use /etc/X11/Xsession.d for that, where the stuff you install put
scripts to be run when the session is run.

Ok, noted. Though the information there might still help.

Sorry, I was wrong, it's not .xsessionrc (which is only sourced,
by /etc/X11/Xsession.d/40x11-common_xsessionrc and is useful to export
some envvar), it's .xsession:
corsac at hidalgo: cat .xsession
