If you are getting errors like fatal: bad revision '73e8cf32' while building this package, refer to PKGBUILD and see which patches caused this. Then, go to the related URLs, replace the commit hashes. If there are conflicts, comment out the patches.

Please notify me in comment section if this happens.

Note that a debug option is disabled in this package.

To enable the check() process, set an env: _enable_check=y

If the building process is getting failed on check() like

gnome-shell/src/st/ ERROR: Dependency "libmutter-test-11" not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake

then you might want to do one of these:

0) Unset an env: _enable_check=y

1) Rebuild mutter-performance package with _enable_check=y env.

And try again.

The optional performance patches are by default enabled.

A package for mutter (compositor) performance patches:

yep, everything works fine.

griffi-gh commented on 2023-09-02 23:05 (UTC)

Ok, i will check again right now.

@griffi-gh I've just disabled rt-scheduler stuffs on both packages (as gnome 45 will bring real time thread by default.)

See if this fixes.

While mutter-performance works great this package causes multiple issues for me

  • Xwayland always autostarts with the system (logs say that Xwayland-on-demand is disabled??)
  • Geoclue dies during boot
  • Screencasting doesnt work )no option, screencast service unavailable)
  • Gnome-shell sometimes fails to start

(even with rt-scheduler option disabled, just with this installed)
replacing gnome-shell-performance with gnome-shell fixes all of these issues

Do you have time to update it? Thank you for your work

@glorious-yellow, I had this too. The culprit turned out "Open Weather" extension, not this package.

Anyone else getting a memory leak? On my computer, gnome-shell memory usage starts at <1GB, but after 3 days uptime it is currently at 5GB. Also, overview animation becomes laggy after a few days uptime as well (drops to 10 fps in worst case).

Updated to gnome-44.

@thebigboo I don't care about your impatience. You don't pay & owe us maintainers.

FuelFlo commented on 2023-05-07 10:01 (UTC)

@thebigboo Dude, that's not how you talk to people who maintain this stuff for free in their spare time.

thebigboo commented on 2023-05-07 09:13 (UTC)

With all due respect. Update your s**t.
