It's so sad to see one of the things that made Linux so great and unique, get abandoned. I hope someone sometime will continue to develop compiz and make it as great as it used to be.

Fixed building against librsvg 2.51.0+

A commit introduced in librsvg 2.51.0+ renamed librsvg/librsvg-features.h to librsvg/rsvg-features.h .

As a result, this broke the SVG plugin compile process. The following patch includes a fix for this, which will be submitted upstream soon.

For the curious, here's the commit in librsvg that caused this.

Just inspected the directory the include flags were pulling from. Looks like the equivalent file got renamed.

╰─{($))>-< ls /usr/include/librsvg-2.0/librsvg
total 88K
 20K rsvg-cairo.h  8.0K rsvg-features.h   56K rsvg.h  4.0K rsvg-version.h

will need to fix the package to do a quick sed/patch.

@maxkaspar :: Just tested building this and the -git suffixed version today. It affects both. I'll need to inspect what's going on in the build system that's causing it to not detect librsvg .

Doesn't build:

svg.c:35:10: fatal error: librsvg/librsvg-features.h: No such file or directory 35 | #include <librsvg/librsvg-features.h>

@Techman35 I've been using the Compiz since about 2006 with Intel, AMD and NVIDIA. And I disagree that 9 is better than 8 in terms of responsiveness and rendering. 9 version often doesn't immediately draw the contents of windows on cold start.

@axtor I've using compiz for years i still see compiz 9 more responsive and smoother without tearing by default then compiz 8, i love compiz 8 cuz all plugin just works like the blur that still don't work on compiz 9, one thing i want to see in compiz 8 is the possibility to see minimize windows preview when scale plugin is active, that feature work on compiz 9, i've been jumping between 8 and 9 and i always end up using version 9, cuz definitely is more smooth and responsive then 8

Compiz 0.8 rocks! Compiz 0.9 has lags and other twitching. Many thanks to ShadowKyogre for the maintenance.

If anyone has AMD videocard (I've Vega 10) and there is a wide strip on the screen with artifacts when moving windows, then create a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier "AMD"
    Driver "amdgpu"
    Option "TearFree" "true"

Missing some deps for building in a clean chroot:

Package 'xi', required by 'virtual:world', not found
Package 'xcursor', required by 'virtual:world', not found

Please add libxi and libxcursor to dependencies.
