Thanks Techman35 :) I've tested the patch you linked to and can confirm it addresses the issue so I've added it. As for the other issues, I promise I will look into them as soon as I am able but I am rather busy at present. In any case, upstream should be made aware of these issues if there aren't already existing bug reports.

@Chanzza i can tell you more if you want :)
in screenshot plugin the launch_app is not working, id fix it patching the source code with this screenshotfix.patch that i found on launchpad forum as far as i remember this is the patch link: and now it works

Another plugin is the blur plugin, is not working and if i enable it and select Blur Filter Gaussian compiz crash, and if i select other Filter option nothing happens

theres a feature i would like to have in this version of compiz, and is to be able to use dockbarx compiz scale option, it works with version 0.8

@ector thanks, but wrt protobuf, please do NOT symlink new library names to old. This will create a mess. Instead, rebuild compiz. I'll bump the pkgrel in just a moment.

@Techman35 thanks for the info. I wasn't aware there was an issue there as I don't use the widget layer. I'll look into this as soon as I can.

To those who no longer work with ccsm and fusion, they must reinstall, fusion with these modifiers at PKGBUILD:
Build () {
COMPIZ_INFO = $ (pacman -Q compiz)
If ["$ COMPIZ_NAME_VERSION" == "compiz 0.9"]; then
PYTHON = "python2"
PYTHON = "python"

Cd "$ {srcdir} / $ {pkgname} - $ {pkgver}"
$ PYTHON build

Package () {
COMPIZ_INFO = $ (pacman -Q compiz)
If ["$ COMPIZ_NAME_VERSION" == "compiz 0.9"]; then
PYTHON = "python2"

PYTHON = "python"

Cd "$ {srcdir} / $ {pkgname} - $ {pkgver}"
$ PYTHON install --root = "$ pkgdir" --optimize = 1
  Once fusion is reinstalled, if given by the ccsm terminal as an error, give the following command:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
Reinstall compiz and everything goes back to work.

I fix compiz instead of ccsm

@Chazza any plan to fix the widget layer plugin, the end_on_click is not woking

Yep, Compiz works fine against 3.24. No need even for a rebuild. :)

LeCrayonVert commented on 2017-04-24 18:15

Does compiz still run fine with the latest metacity from gnome (3.24) ?

Sorry for the slow responses folks. I've been a little busy off late.

@oberon2007 That's not a bad idea actually. I've noticed that some other AUR maintainers are taking this approach. In future, I'll bump the pkgrel when something needs relinking. If I forget, just yell at me here ;)

Techman35 commented on 2017-01-26 08:47

Yes, rebuilding the package fix the problem too

oberon2007 commented on 2017-01-23 12:53

Maybe you can just bump pkgrel. Like that yaourt will just rebuild it for people automatically as an "update".
