I too have never had a problem with compiz working, I recently rebuilt it after updating protobuf, i.e. April 19 and everything worked very well. I think this is due to the changes made 9 days ago

I normally have to rebuild after a linux update, but apart from that I never seem to have any problems. I use compiz stand-alone.

What is going on with compiz? Because after building it often crashes, well the screen jumps. At first I thought it was the fault of the new protobuf, but this problem also occurs on the current version of protobuf.

I'm dropping compiz and compiz-git. I don't use them anymore so it makes more sense that an active user continue maintenance.

@robson @Chazza Thank you for checking. Glad to know it doesn't affect everyone. I'll keep digging. Maybe I did something weird in my bash environment

EDIT: Ended up being my version of glib2. Does not affect the version included in the arch repos.

Just rebuilt compiz and I'm unable to reproduce this one. Sorry.

I rebuilt compiz yesterday after the protobuf update, and the build went without any problems.

Still investigating, but currently I cannot compile this or compiz-git for the protobuf update. Getting this repeating error during the build:

Package >= was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `>=.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package '>=', required by 'glib-2.0', not found
Package '3.38.0', required by 'glib-2.0', not found

On first glance it seems like a build dependency update introduced a bug, as it's reading '>=' as a package name)

So far I've tried * downgrading cmake to 3.18.4 * downgrading cython to 0.29.21

Anyone else running into this issue?

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; keep having issues. 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.

edit; turns out to be the kernel!! see

Have you tried this:

Otherwise I'm not too sure.
