compiz fusion 0.8.8

Post#1 by linuxnoob » 14 Nov 2013, 15:01

slackware repo only has standard compiz-0.8.8 which doesnt even have the settings manager

debian repo seems to have compiz fusion but only version 0.8.4 and i'm a bit confused with the packages since dependency resolution doesnt work for me with debian repo

any help please?

hey, I had a look and according to the compiz wiki you need these packages installed in this order:

Code: Select all

compiz
bcop
libcompizconfig
compizconfig-python
ccsm
compiz-fusion-plugins-main (it must be built before plugins-extra as it contains necessary header files)
everything else...
It also depends on (most are probably already included in porteus):

Code: Select all

build-essential libxcomposite-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev libsm-dev libxrandr-dev libxdamage-dev libxinerama-dev libstartup-notification0-dev libgconf2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libmetacity-dev librsvg2-dev libdbus-1-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libgnome-window-settings-dev git autoconf automake automake1.9 libtool intltool libxslt1-dev xsltproc libwnck-dev python-dev python-pyrex 
If you're into source, its all available here

Let me know how ya go

i tried installing all the deb packages that you suggested and all their deps, but i got stuck on libcanberra-gtk as porteus says the module is corrupt even after redownloading a few times.

i'm no good at compiling from source so i'm at a bit of a loss, since i cant find any other binaries.

i need an opengl compositor as i get tearing with the nvidia driver and xfce compositor, its a known issue with 460gtx.

i might just forget about compiz and instead try compton or xcompmgr, although the effects in compiz fusion looked really nice.

no probs. Ive uploaded it all to here. Let me know if i missed something. ccm and pygtk are python modules. to install them just extract it and open up terminal in the directory then run "setup.py install". If it says permission denied you need to make setup.py executable. I think the command is "chmod +ax <filename>". maybe double check that...

compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.8.tar.gz is the source package. To compile is way easier than it sounds.
normally its like this:
-unpack the source
-open the directory in terminal
-then type:

Code: Select all

./configure
make
make install
that will build and install the package. If you want to make it into a porteus module do this:
-unpack the source
-open the directory in terminal
-then type:

Code: Select all

./configure
make
make install DESTDIR=/tmp/<filename>
in this case it would look like:

Code: Select all

./configure
make
make install DESTDIR=/tmp/compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.8
now navigate to /tmp/ directory and you will see a folder with the <filename> you specified. right click the folder and convert to xzm module or if you want to do it in terminal here is instructions to make a module. Now you got a porteus package ready to go.

Give me a shout if you get stuck and ill help as much as I can. good luck :good:

EDIT: btw you will need the devel module to compile, you can get it here
