today I reinstalled arch and kept my old home/usr, on my old install I started Xfce with
# # ~/.bash_profile # [[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc if [[ -z $DISPLAY ]] && [[ $(tty) = /dev/tty1 ]]; then exec startxfce4 --with-ck-launch #could use xinit instead of startx #exec xinit -- /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp vt7 fi
When I want to login now, I'm getting some error messages I can't read because it's going to fast.
How can I read/ find the logs that I'm able to find what's wrong?

Desktop environment stuff should go into .xinitrc.
With following in my .bash_profile X output is redirected to .xlog.
[[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR == 1 ]] && startx &> ~/.xlog -- vt$XDG_VTNR
Thank you Šaran, that helped!
