@Techman35 I've been using the Compiz since about 2006 with Intel, AMD and NVIDIA. And I disagree that 9 is better than 8 in terms of responsiveness and rendering. 9 version often doesn't immediately draw the contents of windows on cold start.

@axtor I've using compiz for years i still see compiz 9 more responsive and smoother without tearing by default then compiz 8, i love compiz 8 cuz all plugin just works like the blur that still don't work on compiz 9, one thing i want to see in compiz 8 is the possibility to see minimize windows preview when scale plugin is active, that feature work on compiz 9, i've been jumping between 8 and 9 and i always end up using version 9, cuz definitely is more smooth and responsive then 8

Compiz 0.8 rocks! Compiz 0.9 has lags and other twitching. Many thanks to ShadowKyogre for the maintenance.

If anyone has AMD videocard (I've Vega 10) and there is a wide strip on the screen with artifacts when moving windows, then create a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier "AMD"
    Driver "amdgpu"
    Option "TearFree" "true"

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?

slut commented on 2020-05-26 01:23

_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).
