I'm using Manjaro 32bit Xfce4. After my last
pacman -Syu(it was a big upgrade), I am stuck with what appears to be a broken window manager. All windows are borderless and I cannot switch focus anymore. It's always the topmost window that has focus and I need to close it in order to reach the underlying windows. The symptoms are exactly as described in this post, but I don't use KDE and only have one active DM (LightDM), so I'm not really sure how to fix this.
Just before the upgrade, I ran into the problem described here and had to manually execute
sudo pacman -Rdd libxpresent libxxf86dga libxxf86misc && sudo pacman -Syu
So maybe it's not the WMs fault but something went wrong with Xorg? Note that in my case, pacman didn't complain about
libxpresent, so I simply changed it. Maybe that was a mistake?
To further complicate the matter, ever since I first installed the system, I get this error message with every
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) /etc/skel/.config/autostart/ exists in both 'manjaro-hello' and 'manjaro-xfce-minimal-settings' manjaro-xfce-minimal-settings: /etc/skel/.config/autostart exists in filesystem
At the time, I simply excluded these from updating with
--ignore, but I'd appreciate any hints on how to fix this to make sure it's not causing the first problem.
I would be deeply thankful if someone can help me fix this.
