My xfce seems unable to load the desktop background after latest slackpkg upgrade-all applied 9/8/2020.

slackware64-current kernel 5.4.58

Would it be better to use xfce from Mr. Workman?

I had that problem sometimes when using Sebastien's custom XDM (from SBo).

My problem with xfce4 not loading the desktop background was solved by removing the .cache/sessions/ directory. archlinux page

After "logging out" from xfce4 and X, in your ~ home directory, the command is: $ rm -rf .cache/sessions

then $ startx and the background is back.

Xfce timer plugin

I am trying to install the xfce timer plugin on my Slackware current
64-bit XFCE installation, but I have problem.
After compiling it using SBo script and installing, no timer plugin
appears in the launcher "new item" list to choose from.
Doing it via Ponce's script for current does not help.

How can I properly activate this plugin ?

It works for me. Just installed it from ponce's repository on Slackware64-current. My suggestion in these cases is to try with new/fresh user.

Also check is it in: /usr/share/xfce4/panel-plugins
