    Have you tried to rename the XFCE's configuration directory in ~/.configure/?

    i don't have xfce-session in .config
    maybe the installation is wrong ?

    Did you install the xfce pattern or just bits and pieces of it manually?

    For reference; zypper in -t pattern xfce

    Code:

    Sorry, I have no idea. You have some completely messed up configuration files. Check the settings in /etc/gdm or try to update gdm unconditionally in YaST.
