Thanks for your reply @tildearrow. I'm still unable to build the package, even with a clean build.

I was able to fix that issue installing extra-cmake-modules. Now I have a different error:

/home/silencer/kwin-lowlatency/src/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeTmp/CheckSymbolExists.c:2:10: fatal error: sys/procctl.h: No such file or directory

but I'm not sure how to fix that.

Thank you @tildearrow, but this is after cloning the repo in clean folder :(

@silencer Try cleaning up the build directory. It appears that things break every time a package is updated :<

I'm getting the following error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:753 (kde_clang_format): Unknown CMake command "kde_clang_format".

I've got everything up to date. What could be happening? Thank you!

I get the following error during compilation with the newest version 5.18.5-1:

@nerolucas Thank You! I was losing my mind trying to find what I updated that was causing this.

Just a heads up, the upstream maintainer added what a think is a April Fool's joke, making kwin stutter a lot, unless you go to System Settings -> Compositor and click the "Enough of this torment already!" checkbox.

@freefreno See pinned comment.

I have released 5.18.1 way too early, to the point not even the official KDE team has rolled the 5.18.1 tar files out.

This means the po files (localization files) are out of date (since they get updated with every new release). Therefore I have temporarily removed the tag.
