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).

Two more things on the way -which I can't interpret:

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

Your PKGBUILD compiz unnecessarily overwrites /home/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml, because when we want to switch to xfwm4 it simply can't be done. And after uninstalling compiz the xfce4 session will not start properly.
