I am using Xfce 4.8 on Ubuntu 12.04. Any choice of Desktop Environment starts Xfce. I don't get any Splash Screen nor Xfce session selector nor WiFi icon, neither the option to restart/shutdown.
Last night I closed the session normally and today I found many problems:
No matter whether I try to start session on Unity, GNOME, Gnome-Classic, MATE, etc, it always start Xfce. It doesn't even show the Xfce session selector nor the splash screen.
It doesn't start the
Oragestarts up automatically.
WiFi icon is missing (but I'm connected to the net).
On the user menu, "Suspend" and "Shut Down" are greyed out.
"Logout" is enabled, but when I click on it, it gives me the following error:
The name org.xfce.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files
EDIT: The last package I had installed before this started was
xfce4-utils. I can't open Synaptic Package Manager to uninstall it or to find broken packages. Synaptic doesn't start.
I don't know what to do. I'm still new to Xfce. Any ideas?
