There's little point in reporting that here. Check out the open issues at and open a new one if your symptoms aren't covered by an existing one.

Latest release


had a very deleterious effect on my Xorg usage. Made vlc full screen video almost unwatchably jerky.

I'll do you one better and add it as a dependency. :)

Hi, Could you add libxdg-basedir as makedendency please?

No worries, I've re-enabled the docs for this package by default.

If you want to be added as a co-maintainer for this package btw, just let me know.

WorMzy, sorry, I could've made it more clear in the commit. But my intention of setting build_doc to false by default is so that users who build compton themselves does not have to install asciidoc. For packaging, I think it is better to add asciidoc as dependency and build the man pages.

archtom, I'm guessing you are tiiiecherle@github and/or are following this issue? In which case you are building from a commit that predates (by a day) the decision by upstream to remove the asciidoc makedep by default. In that case, you can either use the PKGBUILD from before this package was updated to reflect that [1], or you can uncomment line #28 [2] to add the asciidoc makedep back in for your build. The current version of the PKGBUILD is only expected to build against origin/HEAD, not historical commits. If you run into problems building the PKGBUILD without alterations, then let me know.


EDIT: Bleh, AUR's markdown made this more difficult than it needed to be.

Thanks for the package. I think asciidoc should be added to the make dependencies. Otherwise it complains about "Program a2x found: NO" and stopts the build. Thanks

Upstream disabled manpages by default, so I updated the package to follow suit. If there's enough demand for them, they're easy enough to re-enable.

EDIT: I've added a way to easily enable manpage generation. Just uncomment the two lines indicated in the PKGBUILD.

Manpages are not available. Can this be included like previous versions?
