@vs220: Sorry, a very stupid mistake I made: While I clean built libcompizconfig I forgot to clean build compizconfig-python for some reason, which is why it hasn't been rebuilt against python 3.8.

Thanks for your support!

@PhotonX python version and PYTHONPATH for root and user



you need to deal with python why 3.7 is used instead of 3.8 when building the package.

@vs220: I rebuilt both compizconfig-python and libcompizconfig multiple times without any effect. Which settings do you refer to?

vs220 commented on 2019-12-17 08:07 (UTC)

@PhotonX rebuilding compizconfig-python should install in a folder python3.8

if this does not happen, you need to look at the settings

The output is empty, so there are indeed no Compiz related libraries in the python3.8 site-packages folder. But in python3.7 there are:

$ ls /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/ |grep compiz

The Python version is 3.8.0, however.

what do you get

ls /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ |grep compiz

Confirming @vs220's findings. The pkgdesc is confusing though. Nothing indicates the use of Python2 anymore. "Compizconfig Settings Manager - GTK2" might be better suited.

@PhotonX Ccsm-gtk3 and ccsm work for me. ccsm (gtk2) displays a warning to RuntimeVarning, but this does not affect the work. After update protobuf it is necessary to rebuild libcompizconfig. Perhaps instead of rebuilding, you have reinstalled the version from the cache

@vs220: Not really, I just had this package installed for many years. :)

But now I tried switching to ccsm-gtk3 and get the same error which leads me to the conclusion that the root of the problem is somewhere else!

vs220 commented on 2019-12-16 18:54 (UTC)

@PhotonX there are reasons not to use ccsm-gtk3 ?
