@darcn I found a workaround for now. Change the _use_marco flag in PKGBUILD to 1. I'm not sure if you need marco installed for it to work, but my metacity theme works fine with this change.

Would it be acceptable to add "compiz" to provides()?

@ShadowKyogre We might need to update the PKGBUILD to betterfit the current situation of Mate/Marco

Right now, it seems like that the GTK3 version of MATE is the one in the upstream repo, and marco-gtk2 is right now in AUR.

Just a little heads up :)

ShadowKyogre, please add libprotobuf2 as dependency (or make dependency?).

Fastor install libprotobuf2

I have a problem. Can't understand why.

Thanks for the addition of the gtk3 option :)

Thanks to omnibus on #compiz-reloaded for spotting the core part of the PKGBUILD didn't fail gracefully if gtk-window-decorator wasn't built. The update in the PKGBUILD simply fixes those build problems. The release #'s bumped anyway in case anyone was affected by the non-graceful fallback.

Updated w/workaround for mksrcinfo.

ShadowKyogre commented on 2016-04-12 01:45

Updated. For those of you using .SRCINFO parsing only AUR clients, I'll need to do an additional fix for toggling marco. mksrcinfo didn't take the disabled by default like I thought it would when pushing this S:.

ShadowKyogre commented on 2016-04-10 19:21

@twa022: Yeah, that was disabled earlier due to not wanting to build something that was limited to cairo only. On top of getting the error hardyh noticed fixed upstream, I'll be including the decorator again. Enabling Marco theme support will be supported through a variable in the PKGBUILD when this is updated too.

The other small change that will come is that this'll be a split PKGBUILD for the decorator that comes bundled with the core. While this seems rather small, it's just in case this gets pulled into the repositories again (( if it's popular enough )).


@hardyh: I'm currently in the progress of migrating the tarballs to the ones on github. Furthermore, the errors you're running into are caused by glib 2.48. See for more info.

Hold on for a day or two while we get this sorted upstream (( PKGBUILDs for the tarballs on github are ready, I'm just waiting for this )).

twa022 commented on 2016-04-09 19:14

No window decorators are built by the PKGBUILD as is. I think you need --enable-gtk (defaults to 2.0, can override with --with-gtk=3.0).
Also should probably add a --disable-schemas-compile flag to ./configure and add an install file to recompile the schema database (

Hurp, meant to link to that too

ShadowKyogre commented on 2016-03-27 17:20

Sorry for the huge delay everyone. I was waiting for this to appear:

Why? It also has details on where the official git repos are now.

Boy this is going to be a loooong Sunday.
