I created this package to fix the following issues with Compiz as Xfce upstream is so far unresponsive:
* https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Compiz#Xfce_panel_window_buttons_are_not_refreshed_when_a_window_changes_viewport
* https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Compiz#Xfce_workspace_switcher_has_wrong_aspect_ratio
The Compiz fixes should not have any effect for non-Compiz users.

If anyone has any other Compiz specific fixes for Xfce panel and wants them included in this package, please don't hesitate to let me know. But, please don't ask me to include non-Compiz specific fixes.

Still haven't run onto situation like that (didn't use my pc a lot these days) but these are some error messages when i start xfce-panel:

@maxkaspar: I couldn't catch it so far. Would be great to get some console output from such a "broken" run (you can restart the panel with "xfce4-panel -r" till you reproduce the problem).

maxkaspar commented on 2021-02-07 13:07

@PhotonX: it's not consistent. Not every time i start an app, but if an icon is hidden, it is for all the apps i start until i click show desktop.

PhotonX commented on 2021-02-07 03:32

@maxkaspar: Does it happen every time you start an application or only sporadically? It seems to work for me, I cannot catch the bug.

maxkaspar commented on 2021-02-06 22:31

The bug with window buttons not being refreshed is still present. When i start an apllication its icon on the Window Buttons plugin is not shown until i click Show Desktop on the panel.

PhotonX commented on 2021-02-06 10:39

Updated to 4.16.1, sorry for the delay!

PhotonX commented on 2021-01-28 12:26

The new patches fail to apply to 4.16.1. So we are stuck at 4.16.0 again.

PhotonX commented on 2020-12-25 12:13

I am aware that Xfce 4.16 is out. Unfortunately, I cannot just bump the package version because two of the patches (two hunks each) don't apply to Xfce 4.16 any more. I will have a look asap, if anything can be done. In the mean time version 4.14.4 can be used alongside Xfce 4.16 without problems, as far as I can tell.

Alternatively, I can comment out the problematic patches for now and update it as is. Then the pager geometry is still correct, but scrolling with the mouse wheel and wrapping around (jumping from last to first viewport) would be broken.

Update: I could adjust the broken patches partially, currently the functionality is back but the properties dialogue is broken (didn't manage to fix the hunks related to the .glade file).

PhotonX commented on 2020-11-26 08:17

Then please report it against the official package or upstream. Though I suspect, it is rather a Compiz bug, the panel being handled wrongly, or a VLC bug (not proper fullscreen). Maybe try with a different player with fullscreen mode and/or with Xfwm instead of Compiz?

@PhotonX Yes, it does.
