I'm trying to build compiz-core on a system with the MATE desktop. I set _use_marco=1 and the build just fails with "Can not find package name : [==> Marco theme support enabled with GTK+3]" without any other output.

If I remove the line "msg "Using GTK+3 for gtk-window-decorator"" (on line 57), the build starts, but fails while building gtk-window-decorator.

@JPB_9876 compiz-core isn't dependant on protobuf, but libcompizconfig is. You'll need to rebuild that against the updated protobuf to get compiz going again.

The update of protobuf to 3.7.0-1 seems to have broken compiz:

[user@brix ~]$ compiz --replace compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin '/usr/lib/compiz/' : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'ccp'

Reinstalling compiz-core ( makes no difference. Rolling back to protobuf- fixes the problem.

Any ideas what needs to be done to fix this permanently?

Thank you!

@ShadowKyogre: Thanks for the speedy fix. Your fix is definately the smarter one.

@glitsj16:: After looking at the output of the packaging functions carefully, removing the line deleting "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/compiz.desktop" resulted it in only being made in the compiz-core package.

So I updated the PKGBUILD now to remove it from the REMOVE_THESE arrays altogether.

The PKGBUILD for errors out while building compiz-gtk. "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/compiz.desktop" should be added to the REMOVE_THESE array in package_compiz-core() and removed from that same array in package_compiz-gtk().

Should compiz-core provide compiz ?, only looks for 'compiz>=0.8.0' unfortunately.

@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 :)
