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 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: (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.

liviucmg commented on 2017-10-16 16:32

Small suggestion: Perhaps you can replace the "--enable-xpresent" line with "--disable-xpresent"? Xfwm4 features a new OpenGL compositor that fixes long-standing VSYNC issues, but Xpresent needs to be disabled for it to work.

Relevant line from the docs: "If both VSYNC methods are available, xfwm4 will prefer Present over OpenGL."

Really nice work, good to see xfce4 still in development.
