XFCE shouldn't care a bit about which video driver you use; it's just
using X. I've used XFCE on closed NVidia drivers (not the version you're
talking about) without any problems. Installed them using Synaptic with
Can't answer for Ubuntu 13, though. Ubuntu's Unity interface tries to do
what I consider fancy stuff for the desktop UI, so it might be more
sensitive to drivers. (Like KDE4 in that area, I think.)
But I think if you can't even get X to run the driver in the first place
(boot to a text login, login and run "startx"), you haven't even gotten
to the point where XFCE or the Ubuntu UI is trying to use it.
