Thanks for your reply. I have the xfce4 mint meta package installed, but I saw a standalone xfce4 meta that I think you were referring to, and I have installed it. I don’t know if there could be a conflict with having both. Unfortunately, neither the ways I was trying or the Xsession way worked with the new package installed. It still dumps me right into Gnome.
I looked in the error log and it said it was looking for Node.cfg and not node.cfg on several lines. I made a copy of it, and changed the owner to nx like the other one with the N capitalized. It got rid of the errors, but I’m still getting Gnome.
Is there another location where it looks for this? Could it be the NoMachine client on my Mac computer?
