    XFCE window manager forgets my settings


    I've installed xfce an my LFS build. and it works for the most part. The only problem is that the window manager settings are forgotten when i start up xfce. It remembers my sessions alright and all the other settings load correctly but, for example, it forgets that i want the workspaces to wrap when the mouse reaches the end of the screen.

    anyone else have this problem and/or know how to fix it?
    thanks

    my guess is that where ever these config files are, user does not have read write access to them

    so, i'm clueless as to why this is happening. quite annoying.
