Mint 13 xcfe ... I've lost my window manager?

Postby Hoser Rob on Sun Dec 16, 2012 2:31 pm

I think. ... the programs (not software manager) have worked, but there are no windows. They can't be moved. And there only seems to be one workspace. Plus in settings the window manager windows don't come when they're called.

It was working fine since I installed the cedarview packages in synaptic, not now.

This morning I installed Xfce4-notifyd and xfce4-goodies. But after I got a "broken pipe" message on logout like before I installed the cedarview stuff.

So I uninstalled xfce4-goodies with sudo. And got this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
xfce4-genmon-plugin python-webob python-cherrypy3 calibre-bin
python-dnspython libqt4-test xfce4-verve-plugin xfce4-cpufreq-plugin
python-routes xfce4-mailwatch-plugin libchm1 python-lxml xfce4-notes-plugin

xfce4-cpugraph-plugin xfce4-artwork xfce4-smartbookmark-plugin
python-pyparsing xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin libpodofo0.9.0
xfce4-mount-plugin xfburn xfce4-sensors-plugin libqt4-scripttools
xfce4-clipman xfce4-clipman-plugin
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 21 not upgraded.
After this operation, 27.6 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

And then, I suspect stupidly, autoremoved them. And unfortunately I didn't record that list as nicely, and I don't know where to find the log either if it's there.

So how do I find out what packages to install to make this normal?

Or should I just install xfce4 from the repos?
