Im glad that I get soo much feedback from all of you :)
I hope, you read all my emails related to this problems before ... this is
the 4th one :D
on the 2nd Email I posted 2 screenshots to show how the things have changed
all of a sudden
here the Output for xdpyinfo:
if you search form the other files: (screenshots)
I just hope everything turns back normal as before ... else .. it would
prolly force me to use another
window manager :/ and tbH I liked Xfce4 very much
