Hallo people.
I'm a beginner with Gentoo (less than a week). I have achieved to install Gentoo on a laptop.
Due to the slow performance first I only installed the [25] default/linux/amd64/17.0/systemd (stable) * profile.
Now I wanted to install the XFCE4 desktop.
For this I installed
Code:
xfce-base/xfce4-meta,
x11-terms/xfce4-terminal
and more,
following this url:https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xfce

Now, after installing, I login as root in a tty terminal and then enter
Code:
startx xfce

I just receive a black screen, then I receive some messages of Xorg and Xserver shut down successfully,
but no XFCE desktop appears. Instead I'm back on text terminal (tty).
I should mention (again), that I do not use openrc (xinit), my profile is selected for use with systemd.
So, simply, what is the easiest way to get XFCE run on a systemd gentoo system?

Thank you in advance.

Hello.

Your X log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) might be a good starting point to help diagnose the issue.

There is no difference, as standard user to root...

Are you using "startx xfce4" or "startxfce4" ... the latter should work. The former, I'm not quite so sure...

Tu use startx you may need to set XSESSION=xfce4 or something like that ...

I tried the this:
Code:
startx
and when this did not work, I tried:
Code:
startx xfce
and after that I also tried
Code:
startx xfce4

In no case I saw the known XFCE Desktop. Sometimes I see a split screen with 3 gui terminals. So strange!

You should be running

"startxfce4"

(One word, NO spaces, ONE x)

I believe running

"XSESSION=xfce4 startx"

should also work -- but I did not try it and not sure.

And in any case you should absolutely NOT be doing it as root.

Running X as root is very dangerous as GUI apps are not secured so the entire system is vulnerable. Besides that, all the GUI tools are designed to be run as a user and expect it. This means that they will fail in unexpected ways when run as root.

The 3 screens you got are the default X environment, twm I believe, that gets bundled with xorg.

Now, after installing, I login as root in a tty terminal and then enter
Code:
startx xfce

I just receive a black screen, then I receive some messages of Xorg and Xserver shut down successfully,
but no XFCE desktop appears. Instead I'm back on text terminal (tty).

The Gentoo Wiki article you referenced does not tell you to use the command you quoted. It states the following:

Xfce - Gentoo Wiki wrote:
startx
When using startx, create a ~/.xinitrc file with the following contents:
Code:
exec startxfce4

startxfce4
To launch the Xfce4 desktop simply type startxfce4 at the command-line and press enter:
Code:
user $ startxfce4



Did you create the file ~/.xinitrc with the contents stated in the Wiki article? The Wiki article is giving you two alternatives: either a) create the file ~/.xinitrc containing 'exec startxfce4' and use the command 'startx' from your user account, or b) use the command 'startxfce4' from your user account.

Maybe I mistake / misunderstand because I think of a login manager like xdm, sddm or lightdm, which I assume, are not installed on my system. Iunderstand, that after a login as a normal user then the desktop environment will be run as normal user also.

Thanks for clearing.

@ "The doctor" and Fitzcarraldo also: I'll need to test the suggested commands as soon I'll be back on my Gentoo system.

Not sure when the devs will chime in but they'll suggest not to hack your .xinitrc unless you really know what you're doing - as it will muck up with the Gentoo scripting, mainly to set up XDG stuff.

Do so at your own risk (though startxfce4 will also set up XDG stuff for you.)

I'm at home now and I'm very sorry to say: there is no startxfce4 file on my Gentoo system,the only sequence found on my system is startx . So where is this mysterious file startxfce4? Of course I created a ~/.xinitrc file (as user) with the described content.

Did you install xfce4-meta or how did you install xfce4?

/usr/bin/startxfce4 is part of xfce-base/xfce4-session which should have been picked up by xfce4-meta . You can try

equery list xfce4-session

to see if you have it installed. equery is part of app-portage/gentoolkit if you don't have it installed.

I wonder, I wonder, I thought, I've installed xfce4-meta. But a check with:
Code:
emerge -p xfce4-meta
replied: N for not installed.
Ok, so I will install this package with distributed computing = distcc because there are about 300 sub packages belonging to [xfce4-meta[/i]. But I have many problems distcc. For these problems, I have opened a new thread.
Because without distributed computing, my 2009 year old x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5870 @ 2.00GHz with 4 GBytes Ram is compiling very, very slow.
When I have received a suitable answer to my distcc topic I will go on then with installing big packages.
Else, I will think about to use Gentoo on such a slow system.

Well, need to expect compilation time!

I still run Gentoo-xfce4 on an Atom box (with 2GB RAM) so I feel your pain... Trying to use my quad core machines as much as possible but the Atom is still stuck compiling on its own frequently.

Hmmm. you may be right, but what matters is processor speed. I will combine external servers to share their processor power with my client (distcc). And when I compiled my kernel-4.17.0 without distcc, I just needed 30 minutes, when I (meant , distcc works fine) used distcc, then my compilation time melted down to 10 minutes.
But emerging fce4-meta is not behaving like kernel compiling.
So, for me is essential to make distcc run smoothly as it is proposed for.

Hallo friends.
After I was busy to learn about distcc usage in combination with emerge / compiling / make, I tried to install
Code:
emerge --ask --autounmask-write xfce-base/xfce4-meta
which seems to work (install) several (sub) packages fine.
Until there was a package named snappy which could not be installed, because there is a missing part or object or so with name window.h.
So here installation of xfce-base/xfce4-meta stops, because I cannot find any package or else, which could satisfy this window.h file.

I'm not sure, I will go on trying to install xfce4-meta on this at several locations changed Gentoo system (my first at all).
I wonder, why it is not possible to install the XFCE desktop as simple as it is told this desktop is simple, lean and tiny for less strong hardware.

I rather think about to start at the beginning again:
-boot with live Gentoo USB-stick
-completely delete the root partition
-unpack stage3 to the empty partition again
-chroot to the new partition with the unpacked skeleton
-selecting another profile
...

So, here are some questions, which should show me the way how I will have to go on next:
- If I'd choose the default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop profile, do I already have systemd included?
- if not, can I easily activate systemd.

My intention is such to prepare this slow laptop for a usable desktop, and, if XFCE doesn't work, then I will have to choose Plasma later,
when I will have understood more of generell Gentoo.

Thank you for joining again.

As systemd is an explicit choice for Gentoo, if you did not install systemd, likely you do not have it. Most Gentooers are systemd refugees by choice as they want to stay far away from this contraption. That is not to say there are a good number of them using it as well (me included, I have a mixture of systemd and openrc boxes.)

I think a quick way to tell: Run
Code:
$ systemctl

If it pulls up a list of targets, you're running systemd.

If it gives you an error indicating some dbus problem or if the command isn't found, then you are not.

On my 'strong' computer, I have a Sabayon OS, a Gentoo based binary operating system.
It is using systemd. That is the reason, why I chose systemd for Gentoo installation profile.
But it made problems then to install a simple desktop, XFCE

Because Plasma contains many (sub) packages, I will not install it before I will have made more experiences with Gentoo.

Ok, it's a good idea to check an installation with the systemctl -a command.
I also know, that there is a systemd component, which can be installed with emerge

I'm more worried about people who run

# emerge systemd

and then they say they're running systemd... no they are not. A kernel command line needs to be changed to specify systemd as init.

Honestly I've found xfce runs perfectly fine under systemd. Haven't noticed any glitches whatsoever. Granted most of my systemd boxes have gnome3 installed as well, perhaps having gnome3 gets more of the dep issues cleared away.
