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:

When library names like 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.

Switched from compiz-0.8 to compiz-0.9 today, because compiz-0.8 is now F**Ked :(

Does anyone know WHERE is the "Group and Tab" plugin in compiz-0.9? The "Group" plugin is there in the archive and on LaunchPad:

However, it doesn't seem to be installed on my system, and I can't find it in CCSM neither. Anyone got it working?

@Chazza thanks a lot for rebuilding compiz-git helped. Because I have the chaotic-aur repo added, in which there is the next compiz-git and reinstalling it did not work. Rebuilding compiz-git with PKGBUILD from AUR solved the problem with protobuf. Thanks a lot again.

@robson You don't need to rebuild protobuf, you need to rebuild compiz. There is no need to edit any PKGBUILDs. Simply re-run makepkg.

robson commented on 2019-12-18 10:40

@Chazza you write that it is enough to rebuild the protobuf, but where should you edit PKGBUILD?

Thanks for the heads up and the patch! Committed.

@Chazza I have created a patch to fix the issue that @Techman35 raised. Here are the required files:

This was happening because Python 3.8 removed a deprecated function.
