Anyone here looking for compiz-bzr should install compiz-git instead. Upstream development has moved back to git, making compiz-bzr obsolete.

The compiz-git package is available here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/compiz-git/

When library names like libprotobuf.so.XX change you just need to rebuild compiz. It's not a problem with the PKGBUILD. This is normal for AUR packages. Packages in the official repos also get rebuilt when libraries are updated.

Note that you shouldn't symlink new library names to old. This will create problems for you further down the line.

Tnx. I'll try workarounds next. I noticed enabling 'Animations Plus' was causing compiz to crash completely at random times. Then I disabled all animations and I haven't had any issues so far.

edit; I have the workarounds enabled now. I was also having issues with the screenshot plugin (very important to me) in that the shots were now faded. Workaround was to disable the selection indicator. Not acceptable. So I looked at what I changed recently and one of the things I adjusted to try and get rid of rendering issues was DRI version 2 instead of 3. I think that was a bad idea. For sure that was causing the screenshot plugin to misbehave.

Have you tried this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Compiz#Video_tearing

Otherwise I'm not too sure.

I ran into rendering issues, switched back from compiz-git but didn't resolve it. I'm running Plasma now with all desktop effects on and no issues so it's got something to do with compiz. First noticed it with playing DRM video. Then gtk apps started just missing parts, and fullscreen video with mpv suddenly would flicker badly. After reboot everything fine again for some time. Any ideas where to start?

I'm good again! Tnx @ lectrode; learned something there. Rebuilding packages shown by that pacman command didn't work. I tried the command for 3.9 instead of 3.8 which gave me a huge list. Then proceeded to install rebuild-detector. It took hours and hours to rebuild everything that needed to rebuild and while I was at it installed compiz-git. I'm not sure if that fixed the issue for me or switching to compiz-git. I'll stay with compiz-git for now.

@Autodidaddy @wm8120 You can list packages that need to be rebuilt after python update with:

pacman -Qqo "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages"

There is also a rebuild-detector in the AUR that may help you out further.

If so, try building compiz-git https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/compiz-git/

Autodidaddy commented on 2021-02-02 01:34

I don't think it's nonsense @robson. I updated my system and ccsm won't start:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 98, in <module>
import compizconfig
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'compizconfig'

Rebuilding compiz didn't fix it. Did you fix the issue @wm8120?

robson commented on 2020-12-04 00:15

@wm8120 What nonsense are you talking. I just finished building a compiz, and it is building properly. Update your system before building anything.

wm8120 commented on 2020-12-03 23:37

The latest update makes the python upgrade from 3.8 to 3.9 and causes several module cannot import, e.g. compizconfig. Because no corresponding packages under /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/ directory. How to fix this issue?

@je-ve Metacity is required for metacity theme support in gtk-window-decorator. If you want to use emerald you can just install it and next time compiz starts it should automatically be used - see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Compiz#Window_decoration. Metacity will remain a hard dependency.
