Kind reminder: This is a git-based package, so unless the building process fails for you, there's no need to flag it out-of-date.

Additionally, if you're using an AUR helper such as yay, you might encounter the following error when building the package:

/home/user/.cache/yay/vibrantlinux-git/vibrantlinux is not a clone of https://github.com/zee-mzha/vibrantLinux.git

That's because the URL of the repository has changed. To fix it, just delete the cache directory and re-build: ~/.cache/yay/vibrantlinux-git/vibrantlinux

gbr, thanks, I just did

jotaveh: I'm not the creator of Vibrant Linux, I just maintain this AUR package. You may want to report your issue on their bug tracker, though.

Hi! i'm using manjaro xfce Qonos 21.2.4

The vibrant is working good, and the option to personalise apps are working good too, i'm using the "partial window title match" option.

the problem is: I always need to turn on the "Set vibrance only when program is in focus" option when the app starts. I'd like to use this without always need to configure.

anyway, thanks for this app! :)

vibrantlinux is now not depending on libxnvctrl, and now needs "libvibrant" as a dependency (instead of just vibrant).

depends=('qt5-base' 'libvibrant')

is all you need

gbr commented on 2020-05-21 15:21 (UTC)

Just did it, thanks guys.

Scrumplex commented on 2020-05-21 14:40 (UTC)

Can you please add "provides=(vibrantlinux)" and "confilcts=(vibrantlinux)"?

hey! Just updated this recently, the build requirements have changed and v2 is out now with support for any gpu driver that implements the CTM proprerty.

gbr commented on 2020-02-22 14:48 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! I'll update the package soon.

zee commented on 2020-02-22 00:32 (UTC)

the program is pretty solid right now so I probably won't be updating it anytime soon but I've moved all my projects to github. https://github.com/zee2200/vibrantLinux

zee commented on 2019-11-21 19:27 (UTC)

@gbr I see I'm very sorry about that, I just realized what my mistake was. I was using the canonicalPath function instead of canonicalFilePath, thank you very much for pointing this out, and finding the error yourself, this has been fixed and pushed as v1.2.4

gbr commented on 2019-11-21 17:45 (UTC)

@zee: I believe I found out what the problem is, I've sent a pull request on your repository, please check once you got time. Basically, the algorithm to detect if the program was already running, compares the directory path of each running process, whilst it should be comparing the executable path. That's why this error message will not show up as easily if you run Vibrant Linux from the build directory, for example. But once you move the binary to /usr/bin (where other multiple binaries are also running from), the error message pops up.

zee commented on 2019-11-20 17:05 (UTC)

@gbr that's strange, I'm not using the package but on my end if I follow the arch install instructions (git clone, cd, ./update.sh) then I can run it with no problem (v1.2.3). Are you sure it's up to date? That issue was there for like a second before I realized what I did wrong and fixed it. If your version is up to date and the problem persists please open an issue so I can try to sort it out, I imagine that would fit more than the package comments.

gbr commented on 2019-11-20 16:13 (UTC)

@zee: No worries, that's what package maintainers are for. :p However, in the last update, vibrantLinux doesn't seem to start anymore. If you try to launch if from the terminal, this error will show: Vibrant Linux is already running.

zee commented on 2019-11-20 05:44 (UTC)

@gbr sorry to be dropping so many changes on you but the install path now is (or at least should be) /usr/bin :)

gbr commented on 2019-11-19 16:30 (UTC)

@zee: Thank you for the heads up! I'll update it soon

Just so you know I recently made changes to the repo, the 512, 256, 128, 64, 32, 16 icons are now all in the assets folder, so imagemagick should no longer be a dependency, and you don't have to resize the icon png anymore. Both icon.png, and icon512.png are the exact same.

zee commented on 2019-10-26 18:10 (UTC)

@gbr thank you for responding, I was wondering what the (make) thing was, should've been obvious now that I think about it. I might go ahead and shrink the image in that case to 512x512 for the next update I push, I didn't know there was a max, and I didn't even think about the icon dimensions. Also yeah you're right about the xcb libs, I didn't even consider that.

gbr commented on 2019-10-26 02:24 (UTC) (edited on 2019-10-26 02:42 (UTC) by gbr)

@zee: imagemagick is only a "make dependency", i.e., only used in the build process. The reason I'm using it though, is to downsize vibrantLinux's logo, because the dimensions of it (1024x1024) exceed the maximum icon resolution of the standard hicolor theme (512x512). Though I should probably generate 32x32, 64x64 and 128x128 icons as well, just in case...

Regarding libxcb and xcb-util-wm, adding them is a bit redundant, since xcb-util-wm is dependent of libxcb, which is dependent of qt5-base. But adding xcb-util-wm won't hurt, I guess. Anyway, thanks for developing vibrantLinux! :)

zee commented on 2019-10-25 17:06 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for packaging this since I have no idea how to actually package things for Arch. I do have a question though, why is imagemagick a dependency for this program? Also just to let you know as of version 1.1.0 the program depends on libxcb, and xcb-util-wm
