Without any log it's quite hard to tell what happens. Do you have
a .xinitrc ? How do you chose that xfce, fluxbox or kde should start,
when using startx ? Can you attach any log (output from
startx, .xsession-errors etc.) to your bug report, so one can tell
what's happening ?

If you try by using startxfce4, does it work ? If not, can you attach
(if different from startx) the logs ?
