Yeah, Compiz needs a rebuild and then it'll be fine.

Last arch update lost compiz configuration and ccsm dont start.
downgrading protobuf fix the problem

Yes it worked without symlink. Thanks!

Chazza commented on 2016-11-22 09:45

No, there's no need to symlink and rebuild. Just rebuild the package and install it and it will be fine. Compiz just needs to be linked against the new libary basically.

Note: please don't start symlinking new library names to old. It might save you a compiz rebuild now but eventually you'll end up with a horrible mess.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
Then recompile and install compiz

Seems like latest version of protobuf names library as
A workaround is to install this AUR package
which provides the right library
