Notification panel icons black background issue

I noticed the past several weeks a problem where icons are black in the background in the notification area, regardless of icon theme or panel color from gtk theme. I'm running ArchLinux, not really sure what package could have caused this (the panel package itself hasn't been updated in awhile). I noticed the problem is only present on Intel and Nvidia GPU machines I have. ATI, it is not present, so perhaps newer drivers are causing it.

Thought I would see if anyone else has this problem before submitting a bug either at Arch or upstream.

A panel reset helps a a bit, but sometimes the icons get mangled later if they change. It's not really an acceptable fix.

Re: Notification panel icons black background issue

Do you have a compositor enabled? Are you using the xfwm4 compositor?

Which appearance theme are you using?

Also, are there any overrides in your ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css file? A quick way to test whether this is a system or profile issue, is to log in to your computer with a secondary test account, keep all the settings at their defaults, and check to see if the problem persists.

Which appearance theme are you using? xfce-evolution, greybird, mate-themes, adwaita - all have the same issue.

Also, are there any overrides in your ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css file? Not using

A quick way to test whether this is a system or profile issue, is to log in to your computer with a secondary test account, keep all the settings at their defaults, and check to see if the problem persists. Will try shortly. Chromebook (intel) is a fresh install this week and having this issue. Other laptop is a 1 year install (nvidia).

Also tried LTS kernel on both devices, doesn't seem to make a difference.

Does it make a difference if you enable compositing?

Thank you sir, oddly, that does work (built-in xfce4 compositing). I'll check my ATI desktop later, but it probably has compositing on. So, is it correct to assume compositing is required for the applet now? I'm guessing this is tied to one of the dependencies of the panel package changing?
