new compiz-fusion backport repository

I have made another repo for compiz fusion, using the official source packages that now, thanks to Sean Finney, are in debian Sid.

This is the apt line:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/compiz-debian-backport ./

Maybe some of you have seen that this repo was here for a while, but I preferred to test a bit those packages waiting that there are in an usable state.

Note that you must completely remove the packages from my old repo before using these packages to avoid problems.

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..

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…)

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).
