This seriously needs to be in community, awesome drop-in replacement for kwin.

@keren_sky I suggest posting the output of dismanctl -i and dismanctl -o, also the names of the processes with high cpu usage

Hi, does this need some further configuration after install ? I install this package, then start Plasma + Wayland as per the archlinux wiki. The login period is extended compared w/ an x11 session and everything is slow. Mouse movements, etc. In htop there are four kwin_wayland processes with near 100% CPU usage. Thanks.

edit: I'll reinstall the package and run those commands suggested by abelian424

@abelian424, thanks for reverting back to the latest stable version.

@dementz Huge miscalculation on my part. I reverted, but it won't auto-update for those who already installed unless if I put in a goofy non-existent higher version number. Also, need to run pacman -Rdd kdecoration-git for those who already installed, and replace with stable kdecoration. If anyone wants to try the beta, you'll have to edit the PKGBUILD and also install kdecoration-git.

Is there a reason this package and its dependencies randomly began tracking beta branches? KwinFT beta is unusable, so I just had to uninstall it and use alternatives like kwin-lowlatency or kwin beta for 5.21.

It's unfortunate this will be the perception users get with kwinft for a few weeks since the latest stable for version 5.20 is excellent.

The current version shouldn't be 5.21.0-1, 5.21.0.beta-0 would work with arch's version numbers and would closely reflect the original version.

I'm unable to compile the package as well:

kwinft-kwinft@5.21.0-beta.0/decorations/decoratedclient.h:87:10: error: ‘void KWin::Decoration::DecoratedClientImpl::requestShowWindowMenu(const QRect&)’ marked ‘override’, but does not override

@abelian424 I'll try it again sometime later today since now I moved back to non-git version of plasma.

abelian424 commented on 2021-02-05 03:12

theriddick, can you post the dismanctl readout?

theriddick commented on 2021-02-04 07:13

this kwinft doesn't even work for me in X11 or Wayland. Just fails to load completely.
