this package is not compatible with libmutter-2 please update the package please

Just FYI: This package currently also depends on libibus to build successfully (which is not listed as a dependency at the moment).

Fantastic, but there is still a little bug... when I press the Win key for selecting menu an then i press it another time for closing it there is a little dotted area which surround my menu icon. I know that it's a very little and stupid bug but it's a bit a punch in an eye. The rest is fantastic, the best DE I've ever tried, not a sign of screen tearing, flickering or others. You're doing an excellent job, but please could you fix this. Bye (sorry for my bad english).

At this point the build is working again with the current version of meson (0.43.0-1), no downgrade needed anymore. There was an update on the gnome/mutter side which also fixed the crash of the DE when you closed maximized windows.

A rebuild is required to support the most recent gnome/mutter update (even though no upstream change was made -- important because tools like yaourt will skip a rebuild when no upstream change is detected).

Without a rebuild budgie-wm will fail attempting to locate/link to the 'old' (now However, the build will currently fail with the most recent version of meson, a downgrade was required (at least for me) to complete the build (as mentioned in my prior comment).

Unable to build with the most recent version of meson (meson-0.43.0-1). Was able to build by downgrading to previous version (meson-0.42.1-2). The same issue occurs when building the budige-desktop community package.

When building with meson-0.43.0-1, I am receiving the build error:

# Meson encountered an error in file subprojects/gvc/, line 31, column 0:
# Sandbox violation: Tried to grab file gvc-channel-map.c from a different subproject.

Getting this error when trying to build:

Meson encountered an error in file src/theme/, line 31, column 0:
Resource "theme_hc_3.20.css" listed in "src/theme/budgie-theme.gresource.xml" was not found. If this is a generated file, pass the target that generates it to gnome.compile_resources() using the "dependencies" keyword argument.

I restore all packages to date 2017-10-05. After that I manage to install budgie-desktop-git.

FAILED: meson-install
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed
Downgrading meson/ninja didn't solve the problem. Upgrading to meson-git and ninja-git din't solve it too.
