Of course. ..-)

What is startxfce4? Do you call it from text mode? Or is it
a command in .xinitrc or .xsession?

Because my primary dialog shell is csh, I have these:


	source ~/.cshrc
	exec ~/.xinitrc

It incorporates the settings from .cshrc and then continues
as .xinitrc.

	[ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
	xrandr --fb 1400x1050
	xrandr --size 1400x1050
	exec startxfce4

(The last line is assumed; I have "start wmaker" there.)

Make sure both files are +x.
