Guess that I ll wait to update xfce, looks a little buggy as stated above.

Hi,on archlinux xfce everything ok for me.
Cheers

You’re not alone. The reboot and power off options are greyed out on the session exit dialog on my end. Lots of comments on the Arch forum.

good to know.

Im not sure if I should invest my time de bugging this version, or invest it learning a tiling wm. Or even returning to ob. Dont need these headaches right now. I fix one issue and another pops up…

Yep OB mate.

But might be worth it when time permits to learn tilling @philT , I have a hard time with those ! lol

Not for me I guess.

Is anybody else seeing screen corruption and artefacts if the Xfce compositor is enabled?

They’ve improved the tearing prevention (apparently) but it doesn’t work with xf86-video-amdgpu.

Fantastic, thanks ector!

I’ve already tried the xpresent backend, it stops the corruption but it also stops the tearing prevention. Using the amdgpu driver’s inbuilt tearfree option removes the problem entirely though.
