I created this package to fix the following issues with Compiz as Xfce upstream is so far unresponsive:
The Compiz fixes should not have any effect for non-Compiz users.

If anyone has any other Compiz specific fixes for Xfce panel and wants them included in this package, please don't hesitate to let me know. But, please don't ask me to include non-Compiz specific fixes.

The new patches fail to apply to 4.16.1. So we are stuck at 4.16.0 again.

PhotonX commented on 2020-12-25 12:13

I am aware that Xfce 4.16 is out. Unfortunately, I cannot just bump the package version because two of the patches (two hunks each) don't apply to Xfce 4.16 any more. I will have a look asap, if anything can be done. In the mean time version 4.14.4 can be used alongside Xfce 4.16 without problems, as far as I can tell.

Alternatively, I can comment out the problematic patches for now and update it as is. Then the pager geometry is still correct, but scrolling with the mouse wheel and wrapping around (jumping from last to first viewport) would be broken.

Update: I could adjust the broken patches partially, currently the functionality is back but the properties dialogue is broken (didn't manage to fix the hunks related to the .glade file).

Then please report it against the official package or upstream. Though I suspect, it is rather a Compiz bug, the panel being handled wrongly, or a VLC bug (not proper fullscreen). Maybe try with a different player with fullscreen mode and/or with Xfwm instead of Compiz?

@PhotonX Yes, it does.

Does the problem appear with the standard xfce4-panel package from the repos as well?

I'm having an issue where VLC doesn't go full screen properly and instead the panel stays shown overtop of my video. This happens to any video I open (steps to reproduce: open VLC, open a video, go to full screen, and move the cursor). This does not happen with xfwm. I'd really appreciate it if you could take a look at this issue.

Thanks, I can reproduce it and will have a look at it asap!

edit: Update to 4.14.4 fixed the problem.

PedroHLC: Thanks for the hint, added!

Also updated to 4.14.3, looks like the first two patches are already implemented into this version, so I commented them out. Please test if all the functionality is still as expected.

Missing libwnck3 as dependency. After adding that it builds fine in a clean chroot.
