Package: xfce4
Version: 4.0.5-1
Severity: normal


just upgraded from woody to sarge.  Previously, I did not yet have XFCE 
on this machine so the configuration is pretty OOTB.

When I click on the icon for the terminal in the XFCE panel it appears 
as if the computer is trying to start the application but in the end 
nothing really happens.  I thought that maybe there is some issue with 
the path environment and that the executable cannot be found.  So I 
looked up the location with 'which xfterm4' and changed the properties 
for the panel entry to /usr/bin/xfterm4.  This did not change anything.  
Currently I am without shell access under XFCE.

The fact you didn't have a working x-terminal-emulator isn't xfce4's

I'm closing this bug given you've not reassigned it elsewhere.
