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.

@corsaw intltool depends on perl-xml-parser so this should already be installed on your system. I cannot reproduce the problem on my side so I'm pretty sure this is not an issue with the compiz PKGBUILD. I suggest you check that your system is up to date.

@corsaw For me, DE Xfce compiz builds correctly. All I can offer you is to add the chaotic-aur repo and install compiz-git.

Unable to build because of a missing perl moduel (XML::Parser). It works after installing it with cpan.

@Chazza It's OK now. Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up! This build issue is caused by the update to gcc 10.

I've created a patch for this. Can you try again?

I would like to inform you that an error occurs during the construction of gtk-window-decorator, and construction stops.

@chazza thank you for this very quick response :) …and your right it was my fault, i added -CMAKE_UNITY_BUILD=TRUE but i forgot the D before CMAKE

The message about coverage reports is not important. To see what your real problem is you need to take a look at that CMakeOutput.log. I just built Compiz on my system and there were no problems so I don't think there's anything wrong with the PKGBUILD.

brikler commented on 2020-05-01 15:29

i am not able to start the build process, it breaks with this error message:

-- No coverage report targets set, not generating coverage report
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/tmp/makepkg/compiz/src/compiz-".
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

how could i set the missing?
