Configure to run GNOME services - how?

Configure to run GNOME services - how?

Parent article: A look at Xfce 4.2

"For users that depend on applications that require GNOME or KDE services, Xfce can be configured to run GNOME or KDE services when it starts."

How do you do this?
I just came across this problem today, as I run XFCE and galeon. I want galeon to use xpdf when it encounters a PDF file, but apparently making this association requires GNOME.

Configure to run GNOME services - how?

Go to the Settings Manager, click the "Sessions and Startup" icon, click the "Advanced" tab and select "Launch GNOME services on startup." You'll have to restart Xfce, of course.

I try to avoid GNOME apps, as I found that running Totem encouraged GNOME to try to take over my Xfce session... had to delete the .cache file under my home directory to restore things to normal...
