X-Air-Edit (Remote control and programm Behringer X Air Mixers) - The UI won't respond to mouse-clicks

Please, help me find what changes I have to make so this (xairedit 1.5-2) will work on my desktop.

Currently I use Manjaro XFCE, kernel 5.4 and 4.19.
I initialize the program, the UI just wont do anything. I can still open extra windows with function keys, but I can't close those extra windows with mouse-click. (They are not using the system's WM, only the main window does.) The whole thing just wont interact with my mouse-clicks. The hover-over effects are showing on Setup/Utility etc UI elements but that's it.

I get no errors when I run it from the terminal.

I've found similar question on Ubuntu Studio 19.10: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1201381/x-air-edit-app-not-working-ubuntustudio-19-10#

It does not matter if I run this AUR version, or the one I downloaded from Behringer's page.

Thanx for any help!

I just installed it on GNOME and can't reproduce your issue. My guess is the package is missing dependencies. I must have something installed that you don't. namcap reports libglvnd as a dependency. It appears that should be there instead of mesa. I suggest editing the PKGBUILD and build it again with the new dependency.

Thank you for your suggestion.

libglvnd is installed on my system. But I did the rebuild anyway, no changes.

The dependencies cover all the libraries you listed above. If you haven't, make sure you have the base-devel group and base meta package installed. They are assumed to be installed when using the AUR:

sudo pacman -Syu --needed base-devel base

It have installed: (1) base-2-2
I've rebuilt xairedit.
Sadly no changes.

Can it be something XFCE related? Can I start this program in a separate X session? (I hope I am understandable. :smiley: )

Since base is just a meta package, it probably did nothing since you already had all it's "dependencies" installed.

I have switched to another VT.
I started the program with

xinit ./X-AIR-EDIT -- :1 vt5

It started, and I was able to move faders, click mutes, etc.
I am not sure what does this prove though. :smiley: Is this something XFCE related?
I will check on the forums tomorrow.
Thank you! Good night/morning/day/whatever you all have!

I managed to kinda crash xfwm4 with
xfwm4 --replace
Now it's terrible but if I start X-AIR-EDIT, it works perfectly.
