Please note that a debug option is disabled in this package.

To disable building the docs package, set an env: _disable_docs=y

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

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

83/114 mutter:core+mutter/backends/native / native-unit TIMEOUT 180.01s killed by signal 15 SIGTERM

then you might want to do one of these:

0) Unset an env: _enable_check=y

1) Kill your pipewire session manager; killall $(pacman -Qq pipewire-session-manager).

2) Reboot the machine.

3) Pass a variable --nocheck to makepkg (which can be passed along with --mflags first if you are using paru) to temporarily disable a check() process.

4) Add a line options=(!check) to the package's PKGBUILD file to disable a check() process.

And try again.

@NettoHikari or anyone unable to compile with the following error:

lto1: internal compiler error: bytecode stream: expected tag identifier_node instead of LTO_UNKNOWN

You need to rebuild sysprof and then try again.

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.

I recently discovered the source of my stuttering problem when using an multibutton/MMO mouse. In short, pressing keys on two different keyboards triggers a reload, which introduces lag. The solution is proposed here:

Essentially, remove the line case XkbNewKeyboardNotify: from ./src/backends/x11/meta-backend-x11.c. I edited the PKGBUILD to contain sed -i '/case XkbNewKeyboardNotify:/d' src/backends/x11/meta-backend-x11.c at the end of the prepare phase, and it immediately removed the stuttering.

Perhaps this can be included optionally (e.g. with an environment variable)? It might be detrimental to people using multiple keyboards with different layouts, bit it is a massive improvement for people with MMO-mice.

@Eirikr No

Does this also contain x11 scaling, such as in the mutter-x11-scaling aur package?
