The issue reported by Taylan should be solved (seems very similar to the issue with my netbook).

graysky's issue sounds sufficiently different to what I was able to reproduce, so it might not be fixed by this update.

Did not help my problem... monitor still goes to sleep and doesn't wake up.  Thanks for trying.

That's an error on your end, not an issue with the packages.

The symbol exists in /usr/lib/libxfce4kbd-private-2.so.0 as provided by libxfce4ui 4.12.0-1.

You can use the following command to figure out which libxfce4kbd-private-2.so.0 is being loaded and then use 'pacman -Qo' on it to find out the package it belongs to:

LD_DEBUG=files xfwm4-settings |& grep libxfce4kbd-private-2.so.0

I installed libxfce4ui
It's okay

Had upgraded with the command
pacman -S xfce4

Hi

I also have the issue when my receiver auto powers off and I lose the HDMI signal.

I fudged a patch with the 4.12 Git and did ./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install following post 20, it then says

/usr/local/bin/xfsettings --replace ............this does not exist, and Octopi said it still was an old version after reboot.

I then updated to 4.12 via octopi and rebooted and the patch worked, not sure why, as I thought things would have been overwritten.

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

Well as I said I don't understand how I did.

I was a bit stupid and could not understand how you got the patch from post 3 (right click, save as) Doh !

Could not find a quick guide so followed this
https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=9391

Fudged it
git clone git://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings
cd xfce4-settings
Choose a patch to Apply: patch -p1 < <patch>
Pointed it to the patch that I got from post 3 as the previous person asked you...
./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install

But the line below does not work, so was kinda stuck
/usr/local/bin/xfsettings --replace

So I rebooted and all was working, but it still said ver 4.11 xx for xfce4-settings, so thought what the heck, I installed 4.12 again from Octopi, rebotted and its at 4.12 and working fine.

Wat I did notice is I have a xfsettingsd in my startup now ?

So long story short, I don't know what I am doing. smile

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

When testing an individual patch (like in this case) it's usually best to build a package based on the existing PKGBUILD but also adding the patch in question.

Feel free to test the following packages that contain the specific patch:

http://pkgbuild.com/~foutrelis/test-bui … atch-5681/

It's not advisable to run 'make install' to install anything since it bypasses the package manager and any installed files will be untracked.

That's why comment 20 on the XFce bugzilla ends with:

After playing, remember to remove the installed xfsettings:
sudo make uninstall

The reason it's working now is probably because it's running the patched xfsettingsd you installed to /usr/local/bin.

To remove the stuff you installed you should follow the same instructions but instead of 'sudo make install' you need to do 'sudo make uninstall'.

Would this still be the case now I have updated to 4.12 again via octopi ?

I believe so, because your custom installation exists under /usr/local. You need to make sure that the Git version of xfce4-settings you installed is fully removed.

The following command should return only files from /usr/bin. If you see any files from /usr/local or other location, then it's picking up custom installed files.

$ type -P $(pacman -Qlq xfce4-settings | grep bin/xf | xargs -n1 basename)
/usr/bin/xfce4-accessibility-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-appearance-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-display-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-keyboard-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-mime-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-mouse-settings
/usr/bin/xfce4-settings-editor
/usr/bin/xfce4-settings-manager
/usr/bin/xfsettingsd

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

Success with 5 tests of allowing the screen to go to sleep and then wake.  I will bang away on it over the weekend here before I am ready to call it fixed... tell me, will this patched version work with xscreensaver?  I have that uninstalled.

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

I don't see why it wouldn't work. Keep in mind that xscreensaver messes with the monitor's DPMS settings and overrides what's set by Xfce Power Manager. (At least it does that by default.)

Also another problem is that the one-line patch we're testing now hasn't been accepted upstream because it introduces other issues. I'll need to think how we can proceed with this.

Well, that didn't last... the 8th time it went to sleep it wouldn't wake up.  Even sshing into the box and restarting lxdm didn't recover it.  Hitting Ctrl+Alt+F[2-6] didn't recover it.  Had to reboot sad  Downgraded back to 4.10 until something can be done.

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

Whisker menu issue . After I dl the package from AUR or anywhere. When I go to add to panel It says something like it's been there in the last 60 seconds. Option to relaunch or terminate. relaunch doesn't do anything. message pops up again. Did a reboot. Same thing. Take note that this was installing the package after the upgrade . Chances are it works if you already had I bet.

If you enabled [testing] you also need to enable [community-testing]. Then you'll get xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin 1.5.0-2 which should work in Xfce 4.12.

Well, I don't want to jinx it, but it seems as though the problem is with hardware.  In this case, using a display cable.  I switched it out earlier today (to an HDMI) and found that not only was my 2650x1440 resolution working, but the monitor has 7 out of 7 times, consistently awakened from power savings mode!  I will keep testing before reporting this upstream.  Another side-effect of the cable swap, is my dmesg is not longer polluted with messages I detailed over 1.5 years ago: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60637

Re: Xfce4 4.12 bugs ... [main bug understood and worked-around]

Just something else Ive picked up.

I moved across to Xubuntu, it was to get away from some issues, strangley I have new ones now, one of them was HDMI no wake up when receiver went off. Due to the lowest version in the repo being 4.11 xx.

Anyway, if you are on Nvidia and have issues, and don't want to patch files, add this to your Xorg.conf, and no issues anymore, well for me anyway.

Add it under Device section

Option "UseHotplugEvents" "false"

New bug about keyboard layout: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/44113
Very annoying bug, even a ' character need some time to be found, different keyboard layout. Found a workaround: keyboard layout applet on a panel, better than nothing.
