I have had some help in private exchanges and have done the following:
yum install avahi gnome-backgrounds
systemctl enable avahi-daemon
systemctl start avahi-daemon
this took care of a number of errors, but why gnome-backgrounds for Xfce
to deal with the message:
Oct 17 20:17:39 ct-c7 journal: Failed to load background
'file:///usr/share/backgrounds/gnome/adwaita-lock.jpg': Error opening
file /usr/share/backgrounds/gnome/adwaita-lock.jpg: No such file or
But still a couple of unresolved errors that are stopping the login:

gnome-shell --- a nasty piece of work, and one the Gnome Mafia
want to cram down our throats
Fedora next ship was blocked by this for a while ....
definitely file a bug and carp publicly
=============end private exchange=====================
So to publicly carp...
I even tried installing gnome-shell:
# yum install gnome-shell
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.siena.edu
* centos-kernel: mirror.siena.edu
* extras: mirror.siena.edu
* updates: mirror.siena.edu
Package gnome-shell-3.26.2-5.el7.armv7hl already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
So what does it want? This is a bug...
And along with the above message is:
Oct 18 10:45:36 ct-c7 org.gnome.Shell.desktop: Window manager warning: "XF86RFKill" is not a valid accelerator
This is also a bug to file with a need for that the accelerator not be called when the modules is absent, as on arm?
So I think I am getting closer to running Xfce, but stumbling along the way.
All help on the above greatly appreciated.
