x11/zenity doesn't create any visible window when run in x11-wm/dwm, no errors reported. I tried both package and ports installation.
When I run another instance of plain X (without any WM), it's perfectly working with --display :1.

Running with --gtk-debug=all doesn't help much: a GTK debug window appears, I can change some parameters, it also suggests selecting an object, which is, obviously, not possible since the main windows is not visible.

Thanks for directions and ideas!

Have you tried changing the mode of x11-wm/dwm to floating? This should work using the modifier-key and the f-key. There are additional commands to toggle through the windows. It is likely that the screen you expect is just hidden somewhere.

Yes, I tried that, I have a workspace with permanent floating layout, also I created a rule for zenity's window class to make it floating, but it didn't help.
