When installing Xfce to a nonstandard prefix such as ~/coding/testing_root, the path doesn't include the Xfce executables by default, and startxfce4 fails.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install to prefix not in path
2. run startxfce4
Created attachment 927
Set paths in startxfce4
patch attached to make "startxfce4" script set paths before running any apps, so that they're all found properly
Created attachment 928
Changes to makefile
The needed changes to Makefile.am in order to generate xfce.desktop from xfce.desktop.in (to be attached).
Created attachment 929
New file to replace xfce.desktop.in
The replacement for xfce.desktop. When this gets applied, please "svn move xfce.desktop xfce.desktop.in" and save this file over xfce.desktop.in.
Combined with the Makefile.am changes, this puts the full path to startxfce4 in the .desktop file for GDM, so that it will be found, even in a nonstandard prefix.
Sorry about the 3 part patch, but "svn diff" gave no obvious way to make an appliable patch in one go.
Doesn't make any sense, startxfce4 is also in the non-existing $PATH, so how can this help?
