Default Upgraded to 8.04 and now can't log in to xfce4

Just get a beige coloured screen and a mouse pointer. I wait patiently
but nothing happens until I get fed up and log into Gnome. I've tried
re-installing xfce4 but it makes no difference. Wouldn't have upgraded
had I known this was going to happen. I want my favourite desktop
manager back! Now!!!

Cheers,

At ease men! I tried it again after leaving the computer off for several
hours and it works fine now. I have no idea why.

Do you see a little graphic in the lower lefthand corner? Clicking on this
should allow you to change sessions if you upgraded an existing install.
Default is Gnome unless you change it here. I normally use KDE so I set that
as the default instead of Gnome although other users of this laptop can sign
on as default to whatever they like to use. I've always been a little
more "hands on" than Gnome is, ... which is also one of the reasons Mac has
never appealed to me!
