Compton currently has a bug where video players will temporarily freeze while the audio continues playing.

I'm pretty sure this has been reported on the github more than once but here is the latest open issue on the bug:

Moreover, compton is currently unmaintained so unless someone fixes it in a fork the issue is unlikely to be addressed. For now the only known fix seems to be to stop Compton while playing videos.

Ah, I thought you were getting a build failure due to the new libconfig. Yes, you will need to rebuild the package against the new library. Installing avkonarev's package is not a solution, it is a workaround.

I created a package that solves this problem. Just install it))

That's the usual problem when libraries are updated and packages depending on them are not rebuilt. The pkgrel of this package should be increased as well.

It seems it is fixed and waiting on release:

I think both @pierovera and I are seeing this message:

compton: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

WorMzy commented on 2017-11-27 20:14

It shouldn't. What error are you getting?

The newest libconfig update (1.6-2 -> 1.7.1-1) breaks this package with error looking up

Note: I've switched to git+https for the source. This may cause problems for anyone who tries to build the new PKGBUILD in a directory with the "old" source. e.g.
==> ERROR: /home/build/builds/compton-git/compton is not a clone of

An easy fix is to edit the git config for the "old" source:

vim /home/build/builds/compton-git/compton/config

Edit the url listed under [remote "origin"] to read "" instead of "git://".

Alternatively, just delete the "old" source and let makepkg checkout the repo again.

FYI for anyone using this AUR package, the compton package in the official community repo seems to keep up to date with git.
