Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

In case anyone is wondering if the problem still exists with the latest mesa update ( 19.0.8 ), the answer is yes.

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

Again the same thing happens with Linux Mint 19.2 Tina in xfce. :wink: No, it doesn't, Linux Mint 19.2 Tina ships with xfwm4 4.12.5 and has no upgrade to 4.13. xfwm4 4.12.5 plays nicely with all mesa versions. That said, I have got Linux Mint 19.2 Tina working fine with xfwm4 4.13.4 (from https://l...

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

Hi pcspecialistpdx. Would you mind posting the output from running inxi -G in the terminal? I'm suspecting the PPA gave you LLVM9 and I'd just like to see if that's the case.

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

I finally got around to trying mesa 19.2 from https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers?field.series_filter=bionic xfwm 4.13.4 works fine with it (compositing on) and I suspect 4.13.0 would too. (as with xfwm 4.13.0, xfwm 4.13.4 does not work with mesa 19.0.2) Just to be clear, m...

I had never mentioned any Launchpad PPA in this context, but the official mesa 19.0.2 -1ubuntu1.1~18.04.2, available through the official Ubuntu "bionic" repositories.
mesa 19.0.2 -1ubuntu1.1~18.04.2 doesn't fix anything

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

mesa 19.0.2 did not fix the issue. I've been tempted to try mesa 19.2 but have not got around to it yet.

I have got the vague feeling that some of you guys are making things more complicated than they are by blacklisting available software updates, although there is no good reason to do so.
There is very good reason to do so, we need xfwm 4.13 to prevent screen tearing.

I know it's an upstream problem and not directly under the control of the Mint team. But what's the latest news (or the forecast timescale) for a full solution to the current problem?
That's a question for the Xfce team and there doesn't seem to be any urgency to fix it.

Xfce comes from upstream (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS), so I don't think it's likely to become available for Mint 19.x. My guess is Mint 20 (will be based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS).
Pretty sure the 18.04 LTS base has Xfce 4.12, not the 4.13 we have with Mint 19.1 Xfce

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

It's a temporary "fix" until there's an updated 4.13 that plays nicely with the latest mesa or a mesa update that plays nicely with 4.13. I personally would have preferred a mesa rollback but that wouldn't have been as easy or quick a temporary fix. Why do they downgrading to 4.12? This version have...

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

But (as a relatively inexpert user...) I am still slightly uncertain what to do. I'll do a Timeshift snapshot first anyway. But should I a) sit on my hands for another few days before I run the latest batch of updates..... just to be on the safe side? b) uncheck the "mesa" and "xfwm4" updates for t...

Re: Window manager broken after last update

Re: Hardware Problems with Kernel 4.15.0-20 and -21

If you think 4.15.0-20 is problematic, give 4.15.0-24 a try. :P I have no graphics at all with 0-24 and discovered I couldn't get the grub menu to unhide with the shift key to add to my frustration. Really beginning to hate the 4.15.x kernel, 4.4.x never gave me this many problems. I wish I could ro...

Strangely enough, the volume control icon got back to its normal size "all by itself". Go figure how. But what I am having "trouble" with now is the over-sized power-manager icon. I tried to adapt your solution, replacing pulseaudio-button with power-manager-button (icon/plugin) but that doesn't se...
