Reviving cairo-compmgr

Hi there!

Anyone had any luck running https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cairo-compmgr/ or https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cairo-compmgr-git/ lately?
It seems that the code hasn't been updated for quite a few years now... It'd be terrible to lose such an amazing compositing manager due to obscurity.


As for the git version, there's a problem with:

ccm-mosaic.vala:422.60-422.67: error: The type name `progress' could not be found
                    x += ((win_area.x - x) * progress) - ((progress) * win_area.x);
                                                           ^^^^^^^^

An easy fix is to remove the parentheses - the package compiles afterwards. But that's just a side note, and I'm not really sure if that's a correct way to go.

The real problem is that either version crashes with:

$ cairo-compmgr -n

Thanks in advance for any tips on how to get this thing running!

@moderators: I know that AUR packages are not officially supported and, if that's a wrong forum, please move the topic to AUR Issues. Thanks in advance for being understanding.

Re: Reviving cairo-compmgr

Select a hosting service like gitlab or the like and fork the project there. Then fix the code and do a merge request or contact upstream somehow.

Re: Reviving cairo-compmgr

I'd gladly do that if I had enough knowledge and skill wink
