@longspear You can try to add the -DQT_X11_DEFINES_FOUND=1 option for cmake -B build

Holly molly, does this do wonders. I'm on no potato, yet I experience serious latency and smoothness improvements without any overhead- not even 1% CPU. Before, I had to turn off my compositor to get certain browsers to scroll smooth, despite kwin effects showing consistently good fps. But, now things are as smooth as the fps should imply. I hope wise KDE devs integrate this objectively better code into kwin someday.

Cool, it really works. That kwin stutters were really annoying. I'm testing it here

@Tromzy Oops, what a big mishap I have made! Apparently I released the 5.20 PKGBUILD on GitHub but forgot to change the version number... o-o

Anyways Plasma 5.20 is no longer in testing so I upgraded the package. Thanks for pointing out!

Sorry, here is the full one (built on another machine, and I get the same error) :

@Tromzy I do not see the error at the end of the paste?... Did you paste an incomplete build log?

Tromzy commented on 2020-10-13 20:33

@tildearrow Sure, here it is :
