madpilot added a comment to D21278: Update XFCE to 4.14.

I made some tests (on 12.0-STABLE):
Libepoxy and XPresent are required for support of vblank (Vertical blanking interval). Currently only GL backend (via libepoxy) is used. I get these warnings (.xession-errors)

(xfwm4:1092): xfwm4-WARNING **: 16:28:42.750: Unsupported GL renderer (llvmpipe (LLVM 8.0, 128 bits)).
(xfwm4:1092): xfwm4-WARNING **: 16:28:42.751: Screen is missing required GL renderer, GL support disabled.

This property (vblank) is by default on 'auto' xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/vblank_mode

Another thing to try iis disabling the compositing functionality in xfwm. I found this:
https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensiveLinux/comments/6b3cs5/is_it_possible_to_disable_compositing_in_xfce_for/
Could you try this and see if the problem goes away?

I have disabled compositing, it doesn't make a difference at all. Used the "Window manager tweaks" panel to do so.

This is an hard issue to fix. I really don't have a solution right away. And I can't if it's a specific xfwm problem, a driver problem, a compositing problem. I'd like someone experiencing this to try another compositing window manager, so we can understand if it's specific to xfwm or a general compositing problem. I'm at odds with this. Keeping xfce at 4.12 isn't acceptable though.
In general newer hardware (especially laptop hardware) s more problematic.
Could you post a screenshot of the problem? So I get a better idea what we're against?
I'm not sure if disabling compositing from the config (or command line) actually disables the usage of hardware acceleration and is able to mitigate the problem, looks like it's not enough. It was worth a try.

Also, I'm on head, which has newer in kernel drivers. Which FreeBSD version are you using?

I'm using 12-STABLE.

This could also be a relevant difference. The drivers on 13 are newer and could not have this problem.
There are too many factors, and we need to exclude at least some. If I was experiencing the bug I'd try myself, but I cant reproduce it.

I found this further guidance. trying the "off" option described here could be worth it:

Can you specify exactly which driver is creating problems?

It is AMD Radeon R2.

vgapci0@pci0:0:1:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x108a1025 chip=0x98531002 rev=0x40 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]'
    device     = 'Mullins [Radeon R2 Graphics]'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

Xorg loads the Vesa driver (amdgpu is also installed, but not loaded).
If I follow this documentation, I have same problem as Eirik.

Has the new xfwm4 been tested with the modesetting X driver? When I do, all window decorations are black. That is - buttons and title shows up, also the corner pieces of windows, but the rest is just black. Switching to intel driver does not show this problem. Other window managers (windowmaker tested so far) do not seem to exhibit any such issues.
I haven't had a chance to test with the previous xfce version yet, sorry.
And yes, I prefer modesetting - it's much faster than Intel, especially with compositing turned on. :) Also, the intel driver cannot resume from suspend after more than ~30 minutes.
ThinkPad X1, 6th gen, last years model - so pretty recent.

I have same issue with the latest stable release 4.14 (and before, with 4.13.x development releases). I use X11 drivers and everything works fine.
I think problem comes from xfwm4, by default we use the GL backend (libepoxy), because XPresent was removed in our ports tree (merged into x11 library). Sometimes if fails (xfwm4 is rather complex). Some linux distribution still provide this library that's why there are 2 backends.

Your log is related to ibus, not xfce4-conf. Xfconf does not depend of dbus-glib anymore, only of gdbus through gio.

I'm very sorry - managed to pick the wrong address from all the open tabs. Here is the log in question:
https://pkg.osl3.modirum.com/data/120amd64-default-wmaker/2019-08-24_21h36m29s/logs/errors/xfce4-conf-4.14.1.log
I'm builng ibus because it's pulled in by gnome3(-lite), so that's unrelated to xfce. It did give me a nasty dependency loop though, but that's unrelated.

Your problem comes from PERL option. You should disable this option. Perl bindings has not been tested by upstream since the 4.13.0 release (port to gdbus).
In the past there was soname change, but upstream decided to keep this field untouched for backwards-compatibility. Personally I wish this option to be removed.

x11/xfce4-conf fails to build because it need dbus, but this has been removed from the Makefile.
The following needs adding back before it will build (using poudriere):
LIB_DEPENDS= libdbus-1.so:devel/dbus \

libdbus-glib-1.so:devel/dbus-glib

[...]

Could you provide a full build log for the failure so this can be investigated?

Can you access this?

Strange, I generated it using arc from command line.
You can grab a ports overlay here:
https://github.com/madpilot78/FreeBSD-xfce4.13
it's the same as the patch.
I also uploaded the result of svn diff here:
https://people.freebsd.org/~madpilot/xfce414.diff

Can you regenerate the svn diff with "--show-copies-as-adds"? The xfce4-places-plugin directory is very confused in the diff. It shows that it was copied from somewhere, but its not clear where it was copied from.
