I have ubuntu 13.10 and I've installed xfce4. After reboot and login with xfce session everything works great but desktop is from unity not xfce.

If i go to Applications Menu-> Settings -> Desktop and change desktop background nothing happens. Also if I press mid-button mouse on desktop the popup menu that appears is from unity and not from xfce

Could you provide a screenshot ? I was not aware of there being a middle-mouse-button menu on the unity desktop (I have just checked and don't get one on my machine). –  NGRhodes Jan 3 at 13:11
