Thanks again korrode :) If the past is anything to go by, the next Compiz release still might be a few months away so I think it's definitely worth adding this one.

Chazza i don't know if you'll consider it relevant for this package, and i assume upstream is going to do a release soon anyway, but for compiz-manjaro i've grabbed upstream commits 3997+4002 (4002 is the main one, but 3997 is prerequisite for it) and unified them into one "marco-in-mate.patch".

This makes Compiz use Marco's theme setting when it's in a MATE session, so MATE's integrated theme settings area works for changing GWD's theme.

Reported the bug:

xinitrc/xprofile files won't work, because I do need these variables set to non-1 value for all other gtk3 programs.

You do have a point, though. I will report this upstream.

Hi patrakov. I'm afraid I'm not so keen an adding tweaks like that to the package itself unless it's absolutely necessary. Can you not just add the two vars to your xinitrc/xprofile file or alternatively add your script to some location such as /usr/local/bin and then change the decorator start command to point to that script?

Dear Maintainer,

I have just found that gtk-window-decorator interacts badly with HiDPI support environment variables: GDK_SCALE and GDK_DPI_SCALE. If they are set to 3 and 0.33333 respectively, then it draws the decoration scaled-down so that it is only above the left third of the window being decorated. So, could you please, in your PKGBUILD, move the original binary to /usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator.orig, and place this shell script instead? This produces wull-width window decorations for me.

export GDK_SCALE=1
export GDK_DPI_SCALE=1
exec /usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator.orig "$@"

Protobuf and Mesa inter alia updated today. CCSM won't run:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 92, in <module>
import compizconfig
ImportError: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZNK6google8protobuf7Message11GetTypeNameEv

Compiz builds and runs just fine for me here. Perhaps you could elaborate?
