Missing some deps for building in a clean chroot:

Package 'xi', required by 'virtual:world', not found
Package 'xcursor', required by 'virtual:world', not found

Please add libxi and libxcursor to dependencies.

@slut, @Qubezo - Hey guys. Sorry for the delay. Checked out what was going on and did the following.

  • set _use_marco=2 in the PKGBUILD
  • Installed marco-gtk2 from the AUR since it got moved there
  • Test compiled the window decorator
  • Checked binary links, links to marco-gtk2 installed prior to build

_use_marco=2 uses marco-gtk2 (<- basically for people who have trouble theming w/GTK3 stuff) _use_marco=1 uses marco (<- for people chill with GTK3 theming)

Which package do you guys have? (marco or marco-gtk2)

I can't use gtk themes window decorator anymore. Is there a fix for this?

_use_marco=2 does not seem to be building gtk-window-decorator anymore since the last update, thus breaking the ability to use gtk themes in compiz.

@spawn Have a look at the 2 messages below yours, they should be informative. Bottomline: download the PKGBUILD to a temporary dir, cd into that and run 'makepkg -rs'. After the build finishes, use 'pacman -U foo bar' to install both packages. I think your AUR helper is either broken or misconfigured.

Compiz-Core is no longer installable, now. Anyone got a fix for this? Getting this annoying error msg all the time: "Can not find package name : [==> Marco theme support enabled with GTK+3". I have tried completely removing mate, but then, same error :(

@WCBROW01 I hade the same problem and solved it by building without an aur helper (which is yay for me).

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!
