- This package now enables OpenGL and X Present tear-free compositing methods in addition to the old X Render method.
- OpenGL is used by default if it is available and compositing is turned on.
- To use Present instead of OpenGL, set XFWM4_USE_PRESENT=1 in the environment.
- Upstream commit "Add PointerMotionHintMask" is reverted, see below for details.

@eworm: Maybe you can add me as a co-maintainer so that I can fix the aforementioned issues?

The .install file should be removed in favor of Pacman hooks.

Hi, is it possible to add "git revert --no-edit 0dfb55407a830572f03297b3c118fac1f3c5b80d"? This patch causes that "Ctrl+F1" shortcut locks moving/resizing windows (

Hi, is there any chance of you adding the install file that's part of the stable package? It's just to ensure the menu icons get updated on installation.

Fixed the dependencies, I will have to take a look at hte libraries.

andreyv commented on 2015-07-01 18:48


Please consider adding libepoxy and libxpresent (the latter one I just committed to AUR) as depencencies. This will allow Xfwm4 to select either of these libraries for tear-free compositing.


P.S. This package should also makedepend on xfce4-dev-tools.

Might to change libxfce4ui-git to libxfce4ui?

@Jristz: This has provides=('xfwm4') since I can remember...

Jristz commented on 2014-06-09 21:46

you can add a provide = xfwm4, so programs needing xfwm4 will be happy

It requires exo
failed with
exo-csource: command not found
build fine after exo installed

Ah, good to know, that the -git package is required now

kode54 commented on 2013-01-17 23:31

Actually, libxfce4ui-git is necessary now, or else you get:

xfwm4-settings.c:46:54: fatal error: libxfce4kbd-private/xfce-shortcuts-xfwm4.h: No such file or directory

TrialnError commented on 2012-12-06 11:34

PKGBuild does work again.

Note, that it's not necessary to use libxfce4ui-git. It also works with the regular release

exo is a build dependency. I had to install it to be able to build.
