I used the exit button to logout of xfce. I got a black screen and my comp froze. I tried ssh'ing in from another comp and couldn't connect. Reboot the machine and when I logged in my tool bar was different. Some of the icons were showing a generic icon and weren't setup. Plus my 'menu' button now says "xfce menu" and it doesn't have the vector logo now.
At the time I needed to logout a lot because I needed to restart the window manager to test some settings. I tried exit 3 times with the same results. Froze with black screen. I CAN use ctl-alt-backspace to return to the login prompt and choose session, etc. Which is what I am now using. Not a big deal really I can keep doing it the way I have been but I'd like to know why this happens.
I am using 5.9 Standard GOLD and my kernel is :
126.96.36.199 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Nov 25 19:27:11 MST 2007 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
Right before this happened I had just downloaded and installed SUN's virtualbox software. Not sure if that was a coincidence or not but thought I'd mention it.
I'd like to get my 'Menu' button(start_button) back with the old Vector linux logo and text
