error message is that there is no starxfce4 command.
Check the spelling. If it is ok then it means startxfce4 is not in your path, or not installed.

When using startx please direct output to a file to investigate why it failed.
startx 2>/mnt/debug

You can also get useful info from /var/log/Xorg.log

If it sticks on a black screen after startx try this as a start script:

Code: Select all

startx 2>/tmp/debug &
sleep 10
pkill startxfce4
killall X
BTW, I recommend using a desktop manager such as lightdm (ssdm pulls in +120M) or you may have permissions errors.

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
