The latest developments in Xfce Settings continue to make their way to both the stable and development releases. Both 4.12.4 and 4.13.4 include a number of improvements, and 4.13.4 is steadily marching toward the 4.14 future.

What’s New?

Bug Fixes (4.12 and 4.13)

  • xfsettingsd --replace does not replace old daemon (Xfce #14381)
  • Uninitialized scalar variables (CID #292062, #292063)

  • Updated laptop detection to include eDP in XfceRandr

Xfce 4.14 Progress (4.13 Only)

  • Xfce Settings has been ported from D-Bus GLib to GDBus as of 4.13.3
  • D-Bus GLib was deprecated in favor of GDBus with GLib 2.26

XRandr Display Scaling (4.13 Only)

  • This new feature is equivalent to xrandr --scale and is used to scale the entire display area
  • The scale values are stored in Xfconf under /Default/<NAME>/Scale/{X,Y}
  • For now, this setting can only be configured via Xfconf. If you’d like to submit a patch to add it to the GUI, we’d love to have it! 😉
