Great, thanks!

This package is finally up-to-date. Please let me know if anything needs to be changed

Once this package is orphaned (hopefully soon), I plan to take over maintainership (since I've been keeping it updated in my repo anyway for years)...until then, anyone who needs to recompile this package can continue to get updated pkgbuild files from here:

Please add "-DCMAKE_CXX_STANDARD=17" to the cmake options as has been done in the compiz package:

Ain't compiling anymore. Had to install to Compiz (plain) - Compiz made me switch to Linux. Would be great if this package will work again

updated source files available here for testing:

@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
