Definitely. When you use startx with an .xinitrc, you won't use the
debian X startup stuff (/etc/X11/Xsession.d) and thus you don't have the
authorizations. So you need to wipe out your .xinitrc and replace it by
an .xsession file. I think you should be able to put there:

xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
exec startxfce4

Maybe tune that a little, then start using startx only, and it ~should~
work fine.
