That's not likely to accomplish anything. You say that you can't "quit
back to the console," which in my mind could mean two different
things. First, try adding the lines Warren mentioned to the
/boot/loader.conf file. Some graphics adapters, like the newer Intel i*
series, require the new vt(8) console in order to work properly.

Second, if you're saying you can't actually quit from the desktop--as
in, you can't click the "Logoff" button in the session menu--it's likely
because you haven't started XFCE with ConsoleKit. You need to start XFCE
from your ~/.xinitrc file (or session file, if you're using a display
manager) with the line:

    exec ck-launch-session startxfce4
That will enable the log-out, shutdown and reboot functions.
