Is xfdesktop(1) any help? What does running 'xfdesktop' in terminal yield?

"sbbuilder" means "SlackBuild builder". So one would run QupZilla.SlackBuild as root to do the fetching and the building.

Sbbuilder does a great job of turning out a properly formatted VL-style SlackBuild. In the case of a browser or such, an actually useful build is usually several edits on down the line yet.

Here's another link. It's still Ubuntu-specific, but it cuts out a lot of the extra wordiness of the "official" page, and I think that makes it easier to follow. With isight-firmware-tools in VL repo, shouldn't be hard to adapt.

A wild idea: @ The Headacher - if you create another user and do a diff -r between the one who lost the desktop and the one who still has it, does anything show up that could be XFCE-related? Or even X-related, considering that neither awesome nor want to work? Ok, first you need to verify that at least awesome works with a fresh user, then install fluxbox and verify that. Btw... after you have installed fluxbox, pls check if it suddenly/magically works for an old user who lost his desktop.

I think in the direction that somehow during usage a configuration file gets corrupted in such a way that either the desktop / window manager refuses to start... Hmmm... there could be something unusual in your ~/.xsession-errors, do you see something. Maybe something that isn't there with a fresh user?
