    I had the same problem. What i did was this:

    apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-goodies.

    After that i had the startx command.

    After typing the startx command it boots into the gui and stop at the welcome to panel screen. the mouse and keyboard are frozen and i have to reboot the raspberry pi.

    any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Did you try running startxfce4 instead of startx? Does /var/log/Xorg.0.log report any errors?

    It is just the keyboard and mouse that are frozen. I can ssh into the machine and kill xfce and then everything returns to normal.

    here are some lines from /var/log/Xorg.log.0

    [ 328.840] (II) SELinux: Disabled on system
    [ 328.942] (II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI2 capable

    There seems to be a few things missing from this 1.0.4 build. Do you have xserver-xorg-input-evdev installed?

    If evdev exists try
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.log.0 |grep modules
    and look for errors. The only difference I can think of between my install and yours is I am currently running the newest 3.6+ kernel and modules.

    here are my results:

    root@kali:~# dpkg --get-selections | grep evdev
    xserver-xorg-input-evdev install

    root@kali:~# more /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep modules

    [ 328.801] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libshadow.so

    it seems that edev is installed and that there are no errors with the modules. I think i am running 3.6.11

    Linux version 3.6.11-cutdown (steev@oswin) (gcc version 4.6.2 20111004 (prerelease) (Linaro GCC 4.6-2011.10) ) #1 PREEMPT S
    at Jun 1 22:10:48 CDT 2013

    is there anything else i should look for?

    Thanks for your help.

    sorry it took me so long to reply. evdev does seem to be installed but not loading for you. The last line should show evdev module being loaded.

    From what it looks like is that the 3.6.11-cutdown kernel in this 1.0.4 build may not have evdev support builtin. I have a feeling that this most recent build was built maybe in qemu and not on a raspberry pi. I would recommend updating your kernel and modules to 3.6.11+ Detailed instructions can be found here: http://nethack.ch/2013/01/16/update-...-raspberry-pi/

    Thanks for your help.

    I updated the kernel and that did not fix the problem. I am beginning to think that the keyboard and mouse not working are side effects and not the real problem.

    I have attached the output of running the command startx and startxfce4 and the Xorg.0.log for each of those commands.

    from the startxfce4.log.txt file:

    (xfce4-settings-helper:2664): xfce4-settings-helper-WARNING **: Failed to get the _NET_NUMBER_OF_DESKTOPS property.
    xinit: connection to X server lost

    (xfwm4:2642): libxfce4ui-WARNING **: ICE I/O Error

    (xfwm4:2642): libxfce4ui-WARNING **: Disconnected from session manager.

    waiting for X server to shut down xfdesktop: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.

    it seems that there is somekind of I/O error.

    Thanks for any additional help you can offer.
