Hi, I did recently install Xfce4-svn from the unstable repos, and it worked, initially. The second time i tried to log in to the Xfce-session, it instantly kicked me out to the GDM, and it has done this ever since. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling Xfce, and searching the forum, but haven't succeded on getting rid of this.
Any tips on how i might solve this?
EDIT: If someone knows the locations of any logfiles that might connected to this, that might help as well.
Check this log file: /var/log/Xorg.0.log, post it if you need further help. You are using unstable so it could be anything.

Thanks a lot for your reply, and sorry for this being so late.
I finally found the problem by entering tty (ctrl+alt+f1) logging in as user and typing startxfce4. Apparently, there were a problem with a cursor theme I'd installed. Removing the theme made xfce work again.
I had a similar problem a few weeks back. Since I installed my own cursor theme, I altered the default index.theme file and stopped it from being upgraded in <code>/etc/pacman.conf</code>:
NoUpgrade = usr/X11R6/lib/X11/icons/default/index.theme
I ran across the problem of Xfce instantly kicking me out when I tried to change the icon theme to default and it obviously didn't find what it was expecting. From then on, I couldn't log into X at all...it would kick me out as soon as Xfce had loaded. To solve the problem, I had to edit <code>~/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/gtk.xml</code> and change the <code>Net/IconThemeName</code> back to a different icon theme. Hopefully that helps if someone else runs across the same thing. :oops:
