The patch by jkampe68 (#109) did it for me. Here is my flow chart:

Downloaded the xfce4-settings_4.12.0.orig.tar.bz2 (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/xfce4-settings_4.12.0.orig.tar.bz2) and unpacked it.

Saved the Patch by jkampe68 (http://bug-attachment.xfce.org/attachment.cgi?id=6590) as .patch file.

Navigated to xfce4-settings-4.12.0-orig/xfsettingsd/ and used the patch command to patch the displays.c file.

Now "./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc" until all dependencies were fulfilled.
Garcon can be found here: https://mirror.netcologne.de/xfce/src/xfce/garcon/0.5/garcon-0.5.0.tar.bz2

"make"

"sudo make install"

Now the /usr/bin/xfsettingsd was replaced and everything worked well after reboot.
