[SOLVED] PCManFM file manager not working for me

Hi, i'm having some troubles with PCManFM. Every time i want to open the file manager it just doesn't do anything, no errors and no feedback if i run it from a console. If i create a folder on my desktop and double click on it, file manager will pop up and i'm able to use it as it were no problems, but still when i close that window it won't open otherwise than clicking on the folder on the desktop. Any ideas?. It's a clean install, followed the wiki for lxde and i've been using linux for 10 years now, tried to figure it out but i couldn't. It's not my first time with arch but i took a break for the last 6 months, thanks in advance.

ibfm 0.1.14-2 (lxde)
pcmanfm 0.9.8-2 (lxde)

cat /etc/rc.conf | grep DAEMONS
# DAEMONS
DAEMONS=(syslog-ng dbus hal !network networkmanager dnsmasqd !netfs crond alsa)

cat .xinitrc | grep exec
exec ck-launch-session startlxde

As i said before, there are no error messages.

Update:
I've just found a lead (l think), if i kill pcmanfm process and rerun it the file manager works fine, the way it should, but desktop won't get managed.
