I am now connected via vnc.  I am using the following for my ~/.vnc/xstartup

#!/bin/sh

unset SESSION_MANAGER
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
exec  /bin/sh /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc
xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
startxfce4 &

No avahi-daemon

But is it really needed on a server?

No cups installed.  That would be a separate step, I assume.

No auto media mount.  I insert a usb drive. I see it in /dev as sdb, but 
it is not showing on the desktop to mount.  Seems I had this when I 
first installed gnome DE and then installed Xfce DE, and selected Xfce DE.

Only ~/Desktop directory created.  None of the other directories you 
tend to see for a user account.

I am going to put this drive to the side and work on other stuff for now.

Unless someone recommends testing some addition.  Meanwhile the install 
of the Xfce group needs to install Base and "X Windows System" it would 
seem.

thanks
