updated compiz 0.6.2 uploaded…

These should fix the problem.. The new version is 0.6.2-0~emiscabpo+2.

Bye

little error in the compiz-manager startup script…

I missed changing the path variables on the compiz-manager script, copied to /usr/bin/compiz by the compiz-core_0.6.2-0~emiscabpo+1.deb.

The incriminated lines are:
COMPIZ_BIN_PATH=”/usr/local/bin/” # For window decorators and compiz
PLUGIN_PATH=”/usr/local/lib/compiz/”
GLXINFO=”/usr/bin/glxinfo”
KWIN=”/usr/bin/kwin”
METACITY=”/usr/bin/metacity”
COMPIZ_NAME=”compiz” # Final name for compiz (compiz.real)

fixed to:
COMPIZ_BIN_PATH=”/usr/bin/” # For window decorators and compiz
PLUGIN_PATH=”/usr/lib/compiz/”
GLXINFO=”/usr/bin/glxinfo”
KWIN=”/usr/bin/kwin”
METACITY=”/usr/bin/metacity”
COMPIZ_NAME=”compiz.real” # Final name for compiz (compiz.real)

Tell me if there are other issues..

kde 3.5.8 backports are online :-D

I’ve finished syncing my local repository, with the tuxfamily one. Now kde 3.5.8 is online.
The apt line is:
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/kde358-bpo ./

You can also find the dsc and the diff.gz of the packages here:
http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/kde358-bpo/sources/

The orig.tar.gz are not present due to preserve disk space. They could be find on http://packages.debian.org or http://snapshot.debian.net

I’ve added the dsc and diff.gz also for other repositories:
http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0/sources/

http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/gnome218-bpo/sources/
http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/misc-backports/sources/

repository maintenance

this evening I’m doing some maintenance on the repositories. You could have problems using them.
I’m also uploading kde 3.5.8…..

Compiz Fusion 0.6.0 + Compiz 0.6.2 for Etch

I’ve re-debianized and updated the official compiz fusion 0.6.0 release + compiz core 0.6.2. Packages are for i386 and compiled against pure Etch. ccsm may not work due to some python libs in etch, please report me if it works 😉
Be sure to uninstall and disable other compiz fusion/compiz packages and repositories before installing these packages.

BACKUP your settings using ccsm or other methods if you are interested preserving them.

The repository is this:
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0 ./
source packages are here:
deb-src http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0 ./

You can browse through source packges using this link:
http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-0.6.0/sources/

I’ve moved the older git snapshots of compiz fusion from the gnome 2.18 bpo repo to a separate dir. The apt line it’s:
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-gnome218-bpo ./

The compiz-gnome218-bpo is here only for reference, but it’s deprecated in favor of the stable release.

Thanks to:
shame (shame at tuxfamily dot org)
Michael Vogt (mvo at ubuntu dot com)
Travis Watkins (amaranth at ubuntu dot com)
Thierry Reding (thierry at gilfi dot de)

who debianized older compiz/compiz fusion sources. My work is based on their work..
Thanks to all the compiz fusion and compiz developers!

And finally, many many thanks to tuxfamily that increased my repository quota to 4gb!
(so I’ll upload kde 3.5.8 packages soon…)

kde 3.5.8 backports are done, but still not uploaded

I’ve done compiling those packages, but they are ~1.3gb, so I need to find disk space to upload them, and the upload will take some time.
I’ve asket tuxfamily folks to increase my disk quota, I’m waiting for them.

If you want to offer me some space to put packages into, please contact me..

kde 3.5.8 backports are arriving….

I’m compiling packages of the new release of kde.

compiz-fusion packages updated

I’ve updated compiz fusion packages in the gnome218-bpo repository, with sources taken from Shame’s packages (http://shame.tuxfamily.org/repo/).
If you need compiz-fusion packages compiled against pure Debian Etch, use his repository.

Packages in my repository are compiled against my gnome 2.18 backports.

If you get openoffice.org windows always in fullscreen, using this compiz fusion packages you must disable the “legacy fullscreen support” option in the workarounds plugin. Disabling it should solve the issue for the moment (thanks to http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?p=31745).

flashplayer and gtk+2.0 2.10.13

I’ve had some issues (like many others on the web) with flashplayer 9 (9.0.31 and 9.0.48) and gtk+2.0 > 2.10.11.
I’ve found that flashplayer calls some gtk function, before gtkinit() is called. This causes an error, that freezes the browser. This affects only konqueror and opera, because they are qt apps, and they don’t call gtkinit(). Firefox works well because it’s a gtk app.

When flash folks will fix it? For now I’ve patched gtk+2.0 with an ubuntu patch that disables the assertion that checks that gtk_init() is called…
Patched gtk+2.0 version in my repository is 2.10.13-1~bpo40+1. The patch included is 091_workaround_no_gtk_init_incorrect_display.patch

gtk+2.0 versions <= 2.10.11 are not affected by this problem.

Repository update, pidgin, hibernate, suspend2-ui

I’ve uploaded some new packages in the last days in the misc-backports repository.

These are:

  • pidgin 2.2.1, backported from debian/unstable
  • hibernate 0.97, I’ve updated by myself the debian unstable package, I’ll send them the sources 😉
  • suspend2-ui, backported from debian/unstable

Good download….
