I still have the dual panel problems with Compiz 0.9 under MATE.  Since a couple of days have to run a sudo killall mate-panel everytime i start up my system to make the bottom panel usable, made a little script and a starter for it in the  top panel to do that.

...about a problem I had with black screen/swithing to tty1 - it was caused by Compiz and since I removed it everything is working great. That issue wasn't connected either with systemd or any other program. Just wanted to inform you about this Rob if someone else has similar problems in the future.

I have noticed that when I change the settings in Compiz then the desktop will disappear leaving only the wallpaper and the mouse cursor.
In these cases I have to go to tty1 and reboot (or hit CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE).

What I have done to work around this is to simply switch to xfwm4 before I change the settings.
Making that button to seamlessly switch between xfwm4 and compiz (and xfwm4 with compton) is a great idea (Thanks Spatry).

To switch the "hard way" I hit ALT+F2 and enter
Code: [Select]
xfwm4 --replace to switch away from Compiz before I alter it and switch back after that with
Code: [Select]
compiz --replace

I'm about to commit to unstable branch compiz-manjaro and compiz08-xfce packages that should help the situation for Xfce users who don't clear and do save their session when they log out after uninstalling compiz.

I've also committed these fixes to compiz-manjaro and compiz-xfce on AUR4.

BTW has anybody ever seen the following feature in compiz:
While in "window switching mode" (alt-tab), bring window to front/highlight when hovering the icon/window preview with the mouse.

I know a window can be selected by clicking, but hovering gives that snappy switching feeling that other switchers often provide.

Thanks!

I have an problem with compiz-manjaro...

After I login the cursor becomes a spinner, or "loading icon", for about 10 seconds eventhough there is nothing loading. Would love a solution to this problem as it looks pretty bad visually.... :(

I've found another issue, this one regarding icons and Compiz.

Some icons does not show in the appswitchers, for instance Atom and Spotify is missing for me. This becomes a larger problem when you minimize the apps as they just become transparent/blank slots in the appswitcher.

I have icons for Spotify and Atom in my icon theme and also in pixmaps. Would love some help to get this fixed or atleast some information.

Cheers!

Please check if compiz needs a rebuild due the current C++ ABI change:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

for i in $(pacman -Qq); do
  if pacman -Qql $i | xargs readelf -d 2>/dev/null | grep -q libstdc++.so.6; then
    echo $i;
  fi;
done

compiz-manjaro has just been updated in unstable branch. (0.9.12.2-4)


This update improves and bugfixes Xfce autostart and uninstallation infrastructure to the point where it should work universally and the issue where xfwm4 doesn't get restored after uninstalling compiz-manjaro should be completely gone (it was already largely gone, but there was still some circumstances where it could occur).

For new users on Xfce everything should just work, for existing users i suggest uninstalling compiz-manjaro, logging out and back in (don't worry if xfwm4 isn't restored at this point), then re-install compiz-manjaro and log out and back in. After this the uninstall infrastructure should be up to date, and then if you uninstall and log out and back in xfwm4 should be immediately restored.


This update also brings improved MATE integration. Compiz GWD now uses Marco's dconf settings when it's in a MATE session, so MATE's native theme settings area now changes the GWD theme too.
