It is possible to use compiz ?


hi; I'm on "stable branch" using KDE & xfce4.

I'd like to use compiz with xfce4.

It is possible ? (cause i get various errors).

Thanks to All :)

Thanx: ok !

at first

# euse -E emerald unsupported -p compiz-fusion


emerge compiz-fusion fusion-icon

At this step i must unmask some ebuilds (using --autounmask-write)


So .... etc-update & -5 to accept all changes. Then I remake the emerge compiz-fusion fusion icon:



ci74771ht ~ # emerge compiz-fusion fusion-icon
Calculating dependencies... done!

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.accept_keywords" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by x11-wm/emerald-0.9.5
# required by x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.8.8[emerald]
# required by compiz-fusion (argument)
=x11-themes/emerald-themes-0.5.2 ~amd64

Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring
CONFIG_PROTECT). Carefully examine the list of proposed changes,
paying special attention to mask or keyword changes that may expose
experimental or unstable packages.

emerge: there are no ebuilds built with USE flags to satisfy ">=x11-wm/compiz-0.8.8[gconf?]".
!!! One of the following packages is required to complete your request:
- x11-wm/compiz-0.9.12::gentoo (Missing IUSE: gconf)
- x11-wm/compiz-0.9.11::gentoo (Missing IUSE: gconf)
(dependency required by "x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.8" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.8.8" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "compiz-fusion" [argument])


Then I've unmasked also emerald in packace.accept_keywords.


I obtain this:

ci74771ht ~ # emerge compiz-fusion fusion-iconCalculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds built with USE flags to satisfy ">=x11-wm/compiz-0.8.8[gconf?]".
!!! One of the following packages is required to complete your request:

(dependency required by "x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.8.8" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "compiz-fusion" [argument])
ci74771ht ~ #

Now, making :

ci74771ht ~ # USE="gconf" emerge -DNu world compiz-fusion fusion-icon -pv

i obtain :

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:

# required by x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.8.8[unsupported]
# required by compiz-fusion (argument)
=x11-libs/compiz-bcop-0.8.8 ~amd64

emerge: there are no ebuilds built with USE flags to satisfy ">=x11-wm/compiz-0.8.8[gconf?]".
!!! One of the following packages is required to complete your request:
- x11-wm/compiz-0.9.12::gentoo (Missing IUSE: gconf)

(dependency required by "x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.8.8[unsupported]" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "compiz-fusion" [argument])

It seems all related to the USE "gconf" :rolleyes:

Thanx for the interest.

I have no idea about the conflicts you may have due to running stable, but that ancient version of compiz...well, it just plain sucks.  It's mostly python, slow, whereas the newer has been rewritten in C.  And just lots of problems & bugs in general in the old one.

You should be able I think to unmask the newer version and give a try at installing it.  It doesn't require all that compiz-fusion, fusion-icon stuff, it's just one package, although I HIGHLY recommend using Emerald with it, if it doesn't pull it in automatically.  Note that only emerald-0.9.5 should be used with the newer compiz, whatever you have to do to make sure of that.

echo "=x11-wm/compiz-0.9.12 **">>/etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

Ought to do it.

xcfe integration, I don't have that info on the top of my head, but it should be easy, lots of info on the web no doubt.

It's possibe that the trouble is related to the metapackage compiz-fusion (there's in portage only one version, the 0.8.8) ?

However i know that compiz 0.9.x is more faster than 0.8.x (tested benching ubuntu ultimate edition) ;)


For me it's a shame the developmental arrest of compiz.
Was associated with KDE, xfce gnome & 2.x.
Would Associate to mate ..... which is basically the old gnome 2.x, apparently.

It's not arrested, just slowed.  The big guns are all moving on to wayland, which _someday will give us better things.  But there's plenty of compiz fans that are keeping it alive.  There's a new version every couple of days or so.

Yes, I know what you mean about that compiz-fusion and such, really it's not worth it, you will find the newer version will work great for you, much more stable.  Compiz 0.9.1x is my stand-alone desktop for a couple of years now.

0.9.12 is in portage, perhaps you have to unmask it as I suggested above?  I've never run stable, so not sure, but I think you should have access to it.  If not, you can just download the ebuild and put it in your local repository.  You'll still have to unmask it.

Hmm, I don't find it readily online either.  Well here's the ebuild anyhow, you may need patches, if you do, let me know I'll get them for you.

I humbly apologize, but I'm still not able to build an ebuild.
What steps should I do?
Forgive my ignorance.

Unfortunately i have little knowledge about the ebuilds in general; if what you posted is a patch well with some help I can groped to walk that path.

Sorry, busy afternoon here.

Yes, you must never modify anything in /usr/portage in any way.  That includes editing existing files or adding files to those directories.  Almost everybody has done that once, it's called learning  B)   Because the next time you try to use portage you find out it's broken.  Not the end of the world, you can just do rm -r /usr/portage, delete it and then do emerge --sync.  But it takes about 40 minutes here to completely rebuild (heh, I know exactly how long here, is that a clue?)

It's really easy Sandro.  Just as you have a Funtoo tree that contains ebuilds (you can LOOK in /usr/portage to get an idea), you are going to create a Sandro tree, that augments the Funtoo tree, is used in addition.  This is done for packages that can't be obtained in the normal tree for example.  The Funtoo tree remains totally unchanged, you make your changes in the Sandro tree (or whatever you want to call it).  Compartmentalization (bet it's the same word in Italian).

So, this link on Gentoo tells you how to do it, but they are a bit out of sync with what we would do in Funtoo, so I'll go through the steps here.

root # install -d /usr/local/portage/profiles
root # echo 'NameOfYourOverlay' > /usr/local/portage/profiles/repo_name
# I've never done the next step, I recommend skipping it, think it's Gentoo only
###skip this!!!###root # echo 'masters = gentoo' > /usr/local/portage/metadata/layout.conf
root # chown -R portage:portage /usr/local/portage

And there you go!  Your very own repository.

Now you have to tell portage to start using it:

root # echo 'PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage ${PORTDIR_OVERLAY}"' >> /etc/portage/make.conf

Hmm, well that's what the Gentoo wiki says, I do it differently:

# MY /etc/portage/make.conf
# ...
# ...                                                                                    

Using my method, whichever repository is listed LAST on the {PORTDIR_OVERLAY} variable takes precedence, meaning if two identical ebuilds (and version numbers) are in both repositories, the one in {LOCAL} in my case would be used.  This can be a handy feature.


Now portage will search your repository as well as Funtoo's when upgrading or installing.

Specifically in this case you'll add this folder to your repository:

root # install -d /usr/local/portage/x11-wm/compiz

Now take the ebuild above and save it as /usr/local/portage/x11-wm/compiz/compiz-0.9.12.ebuild

Now we are going to cross our fingers and hope you have the patches the ebuild needs to do it's job, else I'll have to get those to you over #funtoo or something.

So this is a handy cheat, just link the patch directory that already exists for compiz in the Funtoo tree:

root # ln -s /usr/portage/x11-wm/compiz/files /usr/local/portage/x11-wm/compiz

Any time you add an ebuild, you have to build a manifest for it.  It's easy, like this:

root # cd /usr/local/portage/x11-wm/compiz
root # ebuild compiz.0.9.12.ebuild manifest

It'll cook for a few seconds, then you will see a file called Manifest in the directory.

Finally, since stable apparently only knows about compiz-0.8.8, you have to unmask your new ebuild for portage:

root # echo "=x11-wm/compiz-0.9.12 **">>/etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

Now you're ready!  emerge -av compiz and see what pops up, it should try to install the new version.

Probably we have opened a can of worms here because you most likely don't have the newer emerald too.  We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Oh my.  I just re-read your post #10, apparently you did get it to work in stable without a local rebuild, it just had trouble downloading?  Perhaps you might hold off doing the local repository, I'll try it here and see if they are having some problem.  BRB

Yes, once again I must apologize to you for misunderstanding Sandro.  You did everything right, there is some problem, the ebuild is not downloading the file properly, I got the same thing you did.  I'll find out why and file a bug, we'll fix it soon.

The compiz team apparently is having some problem with that particular vintage.


If you are really set on doing this soon you can follow my instructions on setting up the local repository.  When you save the ebuild, change this line in it:

# change this:
SRC_URI="http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~compiz-team/compiz/0.9.12/tarball/3919 -> ${P}.tgz"

# to this:
SRC_URI="http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~compiz-team/compiz/0.9.12/tarball/3932 -> ${P}.tgz"

And you'll want to be sure and set up your make.conf my way, so that the compiz-0.9.12 in your local repository takes precedence.

Welcome to the bleeding edge, it's the very latest build  :D  I just installed it, gonna reboot after writing this.

Else you'll have to wait for Oleg to fix it.

Sorry guys, been busy, haven't been watching this.

@Sandro: Not sure what you are showing, can you give more info?  It looks like you are trying to do something with the plugins and fusion icon.  They are not applicable at all to compiz anymore, only the old 0.8.8 which isn't even in the tree anymore.  In fact, if you do eix compiz, virtually everything listed is utterly useless except for compiz itself.  The configs, plugins, fusion, no longer used, all built into the one compiz package now.  I hope that helps.  Oleg said he fixed the problem you were having, so compiz should emerge fine now.  I'll watch here now though, in case you have a problem.

@threesixes: Well, same thing, I'm not quite sure what you mean by "icon method", unless you mean the old fusion icon.  That was literally a bandaid because compiz 0.8.8 would crash, so they made that icon so that you could easily restart it.  Hey, you can't make this stuff up, I ain't kiddin'.  Compiz is my desktop manager here, two years, no crashes!  So you see, not needed.

If you mean you want to use it "occasionally" or something, easy enough.  You start compiz at the command line (well, I do it in .xinitrc):

compiz --replace

And NOTHING else, in spite of old info you may see on the web, no longer true.  So easy enough I think to make a little icon if that's what you want, maybe write the code to toggle between it and some other decorator?

I'd like that compiz may funxtion with xfce or mate ..... ut i think for now is impossible or possible with very hard difficulties.

Thank You for All Grat Funtoo users :)


For me the best thing is that lall my system runs perfectly for now.  It's cery very fast & stable cause I can use BOinc ?8with use of cuda) and contemporarily use other softwares ... like videos or other .....

E. G. I try with Arch, but with Boinc running in foreground, they makes error; with Funtoo no problem. and respect to Fedora, the Boinc bench give me in integer ~15000 MIPS in integer and > 4400 about Fpu benchs. Fedora runs about Integer 1/4 of the magic Funtoo :P


Excuse me for the off topic, ut i think that these informations may be util for developers ......


Ciao :D (sono Italiano) ..... then think for Your grat  aid :)


Funtoo never dies !!!
