@lectrode - thanks for your answer. The problem did not apply to me, compiz never compiled. (Not after restarting either).

It seems to be a manjaro specific problem and can be solved by downloading and unpacking the package and using sudo chrootbuild -p compiz-easy-patch (from outside the folder).

@kanehekili both compiz and compiz-easy-patch packages have a strange issue where if you compile either of these, you cannot compile either of them again until after you restart your computer (there are some workarounds, but nothing consistent as of posting)

(If u compile compiz, you can't build that or easy-patch until restarting, and vice-versa)

With current manjaro (5.4.169-1-MANJARO) compiz can't be build. Same error as mentioned below.

[ 16%] Linking CXX static library libcompiz_string.a
make: *** [Makefile:166: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

The "other" compiz package 0.9.14 builds without errors

After installing & rebooting the latest manjaro release (21.1.5) compilation works. Before updating or after updating and before reboot the same error occurred. I'd be glad if someone could give a hint why the compile broke at:

[ 16%] Built target nls

I get a segmentation fault when trying to change the viewports with the cube plugin deformation is set to cylinder or sphere:

/usr/include/c++/10.2.0/bits/stl_vector.h:1045: std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::reference std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::operator[](std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::size_type) [with _Tp = float; _Alloc = std::allocator<float>; std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::reference = float&; std::vector<_Tp, _Alloc>::size_type = long unsigned int]: Assertion '__builtin_expect(__n < this->size(), true)' failed.

I get

failed to parse compiz-easy-patch: Line 84: key "pkgbase" can not occur after pkgbase or pkgname: pkgbase = compiz-easy-patch

when building with yay (building with pamac works).

Can't compile as of today: (Manjaro latest)

The install script runs this to enable compiz on startup:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /sessions/Failsafe/Client0_Command -a -s compiz

The uninstall script runs this to revert to xfwm4:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /sessions/Failsafe/Client0_Command -a -s xfwm4

AFAIK, and from my own testing, this works the way it needs to, but I have not tested it on a fresh install recently.

My Client1_Command is set to xfsettingsd. That might also be needed for the revert
