After commit e07574d6 the default vblank method is GLX again. To use the XPresent method, run

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/vblank_mode -s xpresent

and restart the window manager.

xpresent method is crazy fast for gaming and no screen tearing!!! i wonder why it isnt the default method?to enable it globally add "XFWM4_USE_PRESENT=1" in /etc/enviroment

This package currently doesn't build after the xorgproto switch. Follow https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105031 for updates.

UPDATE: Fixed in xorgproto 2018.2-1.

@liviucmg Latest Xfwm4 added an option to select the compositing method:

--vblank=off|present|glx Set the vblank mode

Thanks for the heads up, will update shortly.

From git, now builds against gtk3. Please update libwnck dependency to libwnck3.

Indeed, the old method uses XRender, which is different from the new XPresent method.

@andreyv Ah that makes sense, thank you. I thought XPresent was the old buggy method. Indeed I am using an Nvidia GT 710 and only the OpenGL method is working for me.

XPresent is also a new compositing method that fixes vsync issues, and is arguably better than the OpenGL method. If XPresent doesn't work for you, you should open an upstream bug: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/ (for proprietary NVIDIA driver the problem may already be known). xfwm4 used to have a variable to override the default method, but now doesn't seem to — I suggest reporting this too. For now you can locally edit the PKGBUILD to enable OpenGL.
