Hey guys,

I think maybe there is an unnecessary step in xfce-config.xml.

It is: "First, make sure you've setup Xorg as shown in the X Server
Configuration Howto."

If user strictly follow X Server Configuration Howto ( ), he would install the whole
xorg-x11 meta package, which is not necessary.

Since xfce4-settings already depends on xorg-server, so just emerge xfce4 would
be enough.

AFAIK, xfce guide is the only guide which mentions xorg guide among our four
DE/WM guides:

Or, instead of removing this step, how about we change it to "First, please
setup VIDEO_CARDS and INPUT_DEVICES variable correctly as described in X Server
Configuration Howto"?
