I created this package to fix the following issues with Compiz as Xfce upstream is so far unresponsive: * * 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.

That's weird, it works for me: Could you please rebuild the package and check if the patch gets correctly applied?

edit: Sorry, actually, the patch only affects the scrolling, not the preview geometry, as this has been fixed upstream already. But possibly not completely fixed... At least, it is not surprising that the problem occurs with both this package and the unpatched one.

This (xfce4-panel-compiz 4.18.4-1) doesn't seem to actually work?

I tried with Xfce 4.18.0-1 and both Compiz and Compiz 0.8.18, and the workspaces still gets distorted in Compiz.

The following screnshots are in sequence; xfwm4 -> Compiz -> xfwm4

The behaviour is exactly as with xfce4-panel 4.18.4-1 (I posted an issue at

I apologize for the delay but I have to setup compiz again to show you. Will get back with more details in a few days.

@Tio: Not really, to be honest. :) Would you mind posting a screenshot of the problem?

This works well but it seems it cannot sync the workspaces between xfce and compiz. So you end up with windows/app launchers unable to hide/show based on the workspace you are on. You know what I mean?

Weird, I copied the deps and makedeps from the official xfce4-panel package, but you are right, it doesn't build without xfce4-dev-tools... Added, thanks for the hint!

Please add xfce4-dev-tools to makedepends, build fails without

@maxkaspar: Thanks, should be fixed now! I didn't update the dependencies since I took over the package, looks like they changed a lot in the mean time...
