Visualization issue

The problem is related to how xfwm is using the compositing effect.
It can be solved by running this command:

$ xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/use_compositing -s false

Then a subsequent log-out/log-in is required. Be sure to “End existing session” to fully refresh the window manager etc.

This changes a key in the configuration file.

You can check that it is “false” by running this command:
$ grep “use_compositing” .config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfwm4.xml <property name=”use_compositing” type=”bool” value=”false”/>
