was protobuf updated in unstable?

I updated last night and it looks like ccsm for compiz will not load after the protobuf update
Check /var/log/pacman.log to see what was updated when.

I should have been more affirmative, I wasn't guessing that is was updated. 

It was updated last night from
[2014-10-11 01:11] [PACMAN] upgraded protobuf (2.5.0-4 -> 2.6.0-2)

Code: [Select]
[manofjello@manjaro ~]$ ccsm
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 92, in <module>
    import compizconfig
ImportError: libprotobuf.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Just downgraded for now

Can a 0.8 user let me know if 0.8 ccsm is affected also?

In Compiz 0.8 with 340.xx drivers, after some time (sometimes ~5 minutes, sometimes ~30 minutes) I can only move mouse cursor and can't do a thing until I reboot PC... With 304.xx everything works great but would really like to have newer drivers and Compiz in the same time.

considering that 0.8 is no longer supported to my knowledge, and that only the rewrite 0.9 is being updated, a fix for your issue might not be possible.

I'm on 0.9 and the newest nvidia driver with no issues, if that helps.  YMMV

I've already promised Rob that I will try Compiz 0.9 but couldn't find some time for experimenting. Would really like to try it... Guys, I would like to know how you configure effects in 0.9 - CCSM like in 0.8 or directly in a file? And would like to know which effects are available in 0.9?!?

Are you sure you're running the new protobuf package from unstable? (2.6.0-2)

It really is very easy to swap between the 2 versions.
For Xfce user:
To swap to 0.9:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S compiz-manjaro(then log out and in)

To swap back to 0.8:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S compiz-xfce(then log out and in)

Answer yes about any conflicts.
You can quickly test Compiz 0.9 in a matter of minutes, and swap back to 0.8 if you don't like it in seconds.
They keep their configuration separate so you can mess with 0.9 as much as you like and if you decide to swap back to 0.8 your configuration will be untouched.

Rather than asking for a list of what's in CCSM, etc., why don't you just quickly try it out :P

yees, solution reinstall libcompizconfig from aur
Thanks.
I'm testing it myself now directly. It seems also compizconfig-python needs rebuilding too.

Package updates will be in Unstable in a few minutes.

Hi guys, figured I'd give compiz another go, didn't like it before on XFCE and still don't really.

I have a little problem though.  After installing compiz with the above command and then uninstalling it with "sudo pacman -R" I have lost my panels in XFCE, if I press the "super" key the menu comes up but no panel is visable, I also un-installed the deps that installed with compiz through pamac, all is working fine in Mate though not in XFCE.  I had also lost my right click but after removing the compiz-***.conf file I got my right click back, still no panels though, can anyone point me in the right direction to repair this without another re-install please?  I have tried to re-install XFCE and the goodies, this did not work either.

Cheers,
darso.

Double check you've removed all compiz packages.
Code: [Select]
pacman -Qs compiz
When you removed Compiz there was instructions about clearing saved sessions, follow them.
Here they are again:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo pacman -R compiz-manjaro
[sudo] password for korrode:
