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
Reading state information... Done
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
python-mechanize xfce4-timer-plugin xfce4-battery-plugin libqt4-help
python-qt4 xfce4-netload-plugin ristretto python-sip libqtassistantclient4
xfce4-wavelan-plugin xfce4-notes libunique-1.0-0 xfce4-systemload-plugin
mousepad xfce4-diskperf-plugin python-cssutils xfce4-fsguard-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
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?
