I doesn't work because the command:
Code:
qlist -I

only make a list of installed packages.
to install xfce follow the guide https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xfce/Guide

I'm aware this post is from 2014, but the original thread was from 2011. That there was no response until 2018 is a good reason why posting unrelated questions to solved threads is not the best choice.

Since it wasn't related to the other thread, I'm not leaving a link reference.

While you are correct regarding qlist -I, the guide does not describe how to install all xfce4 packages as the original user requested.

In general, it is best to not revive very old topics.
