Funtoo Current Xfce New Installation desktop problem

Question

I've installed Funtoo Current to try it again, because stable version is now deprecated.

I have some problems with Xfce desktop:

1) The desktop icons appears with an horrible white background text labels; the file .gtkrc-2.0 to enable transparent label text background as no effect

2) The xfce4-places-plugins crashes;

3) Lightdm don't remember last user; every time i must digit my username

 

With other my old Funtoo (stable)/Gentoo Xfce installations i don't have these problems.

 

can anyone help me?

I couldn't emerge xfce4, actually xfce4-meta package, there is some conflict, xfconfig is blocking xfce4-panel, and both are required,

that never happened before. So I restored previous installation which works good.

Maybe it was something in my configuration, I'll look more into it.

 

regards

1) I have not had this problem

2) I dont have xfce4-places-plugin installed

3) This however is something I am also having trouble with. And I have still not found any solution.

 

I am also having trouble since xfce-extra/xfce4-mixer started to fail during build. (gentoo bug #628424)

[niklas@wst5500:~] 2s 1 % sudo emerge -uDNav --tree @world

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[nomerge       ] xfce-base/xfce4-meta-4.12::gentoo  USE="mixer ristretto svg terminal thunar thunar-volman tumbler xfburn -minimal" 
[ebuild  N    #]  xfce-extra/xfce4-mixer-4.11.0::desktop-kit  USE="alsa keybinder -debug -oss" 0 KiB

Total: 1 package (1 new), Size of downloads: 0 KiB

The following mask changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.unmask" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by xfce-base/xfce4-meta-4.12::gentoo
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
# /var/git/meta-repo/kits/core-kit/profiles/package.mask/00-gentoo:
# Micha? G?rny <mgorny@gentoo.org> (21 Aug 2017)
# xfce4-mixer is discontinued upstream and no longer considered part
# of the DE since 4.12. It requires vulnerable gstreamer:0.10, and no
# longer builds with the development versions of core Xfce4 components.
# The suggested replacement is xfce-extra/xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin.
# Removal in 30 days. Bug #628424.
=xfce-extra/xfce4-mixer-4.11.0

NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge
      from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes.

Would you like to add these changes to your config files? [Yes/No] n


[niklas@wst5500:~] 53s 1 % sudo USE="-mixer" emerge -1av xfce4-meta

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "xfce4-meta" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- xfce-base/xfce4-meta-4.12::desktop-kit (masked by: invalid: RDEPEND: Invalid atom (xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin), token 31)

For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Is this something that's happening to you as well?
