After console login I also typed "startx",but only can get xterm windows.

exec startxfce4 just works! thanks aragats. You are Demon master.

create/edit right type is "vi /.xinitrc" or "vi .xinitrc" ? the "/" should be included ?

If you are within users' home directory vi .xinitrc will work, otherwise vi ~mas/.xinitrc.

Stick to one subject in a thread. Different question, different thread.
