Default v5.3 xfce 4.10 workspace switcher issue

Hello

Just did fresh install this morning on a dell precision wrkstation
with 2 x quad core xeon & nvidia quadro fx video

No issue with bringing up xfce wm
but I opened a terminal in one workspace
Then whenever I tried to go back to it from another, its very slow .. almost hanging ..

Being noob on Xenocara, not sure where to look for troubleshooting ..

Thank you

Hello, and welcome!

Xenocara is just a packaging of X.org for OpenBSD.

Being new to OpenBSD, you might not be aware of the limited support for Nvidia products. From www.openbsd.org/amd64.html:
Quote:
... As with other free operating systems it is highly recommended that Nvidia cards are avoided since this vendor continues to show tremendous resistance towards releasing information that would allow X.Org to support their hardware properly.
Perhaps using the vesa(4) driver will solve your particular issue.

It's installed, you just need to define it in a an xorg.conf file, or in a subset of such a file in the xorg.conf.d directory. See FAQ 11 for general guidance on configuring X WIndows and the xorg.conf(5) man page on configuring an entire file or a subset.
