Changing this in PKGBUILD resolves the problem with dependencies:



provides=(gnome-shell gnome-shell=$pkgver)

Im getting the following error:

[dawid@dawid-pc ~]$ cd gnome-shell-performance
[dawid@dawid-pc gnome-shell-performance]$ makepkg -scCi

Any idea how to overcome that? Im trying to get smooth experience on Surface Pro 3 as it is working fine but i have repeatedly stutters with animations and sluggishness with browser scrolling and animations

Update: detect mutter-781835-workaround before applying MR276

Update: Figured out what was wrong with GDM while reviewing the MR on gitlab - it is dependent on

This package as-is will not work without this MR, which is included in mutter-781835-workaround but I was not using that package at the time (using my own since that package caused some issues for me due to MR168 on it a while back).

Still unable to load GDM or gnome-shell with these patches. Have Intel integrated video adapter.

I'm still unable to load gdm when MR 276 is included even after today's update. This is on Nvidia drivers if that is relevant.

No need to comment MR 276. Just replace 5453f3dd to d12c86cf commit.

Commenting out MR 276 does in fact fix it for me.
