With the new patches, to get realtime scheduling for gnome-shell, do the following:

sudo setcap CAP_SYS_NICE=+ep /usr/bin/gnome-shell 
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['rt-scheduler']"

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.


The optional performance patches are by default enabled.

The patch indicated by https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/merge_requests/70/commits is the one Ubuntu 18.04 currently using.

I have the same issue emaxoda. It seems like it's trying to use source from Daniel Van Vugt instead of main repo.

emaxoda commented on 2019-03-20 02:18

@rodneyck, run pacman -S gsettings-desktop-schemas and then answer yes when asked to remove conflicting packages.

With 3.32, activities overview animation is 100% smooth.

How to check that realtime is working?

Entered sudo setcap CAP_SYS_NICE=+ep /usr/bin/gnome-shell gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['rt-scheduler']"

Rebooted. chrt -p PID (gnome-shell) and see:

pid 591's current scheduling policy: SCHED_OTHER pid 591's current scheduling priority: 0

Must be SCHED_RR|SCHED_RESET_ON_FORK?

@Saren use gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock-git from aur.

Saren commented on 2019-03-16 17:03

As always, many of your favorite extension will stop working on 3.32, this includes Arc Menu, Dash to dock, Trash, No Title Bar and Volume Mixer for me. Also the shell is incredibly laggy caused by some working but problematic extensions. It is smooth with all extensions off, but who on earth uses gnome without extensions?

I recommend to stay out of gnome 3.32 for now, this includes other gnome-related packages in official repo, which means you might want to update vulnerable packages only instead of pacman -Suy.

@rodneyck make sure your pacman mirrors are up-to-date and perform a system upgrade then try again.
