@Techman35, in the comments for compiz (stable version) user @ector has reported an error very similar to yours. I have suggested he report it upstream and mentioned you have a similar issue.

Chazza commented on 2019-02-06 20:25

@Techman35 I tried out your config but CCSM works fine :/ I notice that upstream have pushed a few commits to trunk recently - try updating to 4202 and see if that fixes it. If it still doesn't work then you need to raise this with upstream because it's a bug, not a packaging problem. In the meantime, if you want to stick with the working version of compiz, you can add #revision=4188 onto the end of the source line in the PKGBUILD and it will fetch that particular revision of the source instead of the latest revision.

@chazza I'd upgrade from the preview version compiz-bzr-4188-1 (which was working fine with my config) to the new one compiz-bzr-4191-2, my config works but ccsm don't launch, so, what did was to backup my actual compiz-1 folder so the new version can create a new compiz-1 folder(config), but still ccsm don't launch so i cant set any configuration with new compiz-bzr, what why the Default.ini i'd send you was empty. I will send you my actual config that is working with the previews version compiz-bzr-4188-1 in which ccsm works, only this version compiz-bzr-4191-2 don't launch ccsm but my previews config do work. in other words, i'd upgrade to the new compiz-bzr, ccsm is not launching, but all my config still works.

Well that's odd. The only reasons that file would empty is if: a) You're not storing Compiz configuration in the default profile but in a different profile that you created. b) You're storing your Compiz configuration in GSettings instead of a flat file. c) You have not made a single change to the configuration - you're using all the stock settings. Can you create a tarball with ~/.config/compiz-1 and send me that instead?

@Chazza i'd email you the file... but i saw that is file is empty

Chazza commented on 2019-02-03 15:28

Email me your ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/Default.ini (don't put it on pastebin because that changes the text encoding in my experience) and I'll see if I can reproduce this on my end. If not, there's nothing I can do and you'll have to raise this upstream on

@Chazza still same bug

Chazza commented on 2019-02-02 18:32

@Techman35 I've removed the lines in the PKGBUILD setting the shebangs and such like to python2. I should have done this on the previous update as everything is python3 now but I must have missed it. Hopefully this fixes the issue for you.

@Chazza by the way... is there a way to make the flyin plugin to work with the flyin_direction option? options are not working but in the version 8 it works

Chazza commented on 2019-01-30 20:06

@Techman35 Hmm, seems to be working just fine here. What precisely is the issue? What's the terminal output of ccsm?
