hello you have installed: protobuf-c

@chazza I have installed the r4100 revision and it does not work either. I have installed the and neither.

I can't configure plugins in ccsm. Options of plugins do not appear.

In the mail windows of ccsm all plugins appear in the uncategorized section. if I access a plugin, the empty window appears.

It is very extrange. I sent you a message with the screenshots.

@yoburtu Hmmm, I honestly have no idea why your CCSM is playing up like that. It works fine for me. In answer to your question, to get a previous version of the PKGBUILD (and patches) you can clone the repository and checkout a previous commit. Another, potentially easier, option might be to just take the current PKGBUILD and change the revno to r4100. That's essentially equivalent to the release tarball.

EDIT: I later realised I was mixing up your comment with fifi_fifito's comment! Really sorry about that!! I'm tired and I'm trying to juggle multiple tasks at the moment.

@chazza It's the first thing I've done before writing the post. I have deleted all configuration files in .config/compiz, temporary files in .cache/compiz*, etc. I have rebuilt compiz. I have restarted. But it's still failing.

Can I access to previous version?.

Crikey, it's all systems go for compiz issues today...

So that message you just posted isn't your actual error. It's just a CMake warning that pops up for everyone. You need to post your full build output if I'm to get any idea of what's going wrong. Please, please don't post full build output into a comment by the way. Instead, put it on pastebin and post a link. Thanks.

But before you do that, please try updating your system and rebuilding compiz. Because I can tell you that I rebuilt compiz this morning and there were no issues so I don't think there's anything wrong with the PKGBUILD right now...

Hello, I can not upgrade my compiz, it gives me a mistake Excuse me for the bad english I use a google translator

WARNING: "FindCompiz.cmake" is not found in cmake module directories. It should be installed to allow building of external compiz packages. Call "sudo make findcompiz_install" to install it

@yoburtu I can't reproduce that I'm afraid. CCSM works fine here. Please try making sure your system if fully up-to-date and rebuilding compiz.

ccsm don't works since the last update

I can't configure plugins. The options do not appear. The empty window appears.

Best regards.

Folks, as of today I've switched the Compiz sources over from the release tarballs on launchpad to the pre-release ones. I didn't want to do this but its been thirteen months since the last release tarball and I'm not sure when (if ever) the next one is coming along. I thought it wouldn't be fair to keep everybody on the November 2016 release, potentially forever. So with that in mind, I think the best way of making sure everybody has a reasonably stable and up-to-date version of Compiz is to use the pre-release snapshots that get used in Ubuntu. I'll update the snapshots used at least once a year and more frequently if it's justified. Hope this is acceptable for everybody and have a good Christmas! :)
