Building and Installing Compiz 0.9.x

This is a preliminary 'rough' guide explaining how to compile and install 0.9.x to a non standard prefix. This assumes you are a developer, know exactly what you're doing or do not mind breaking your system. Make sure your regular user has write access to the source directory (do not build the source as root). The dependency list is as follows.

Dependencies:

git-core cmake libcairo2-dev librsvg2-dev libglib2.0-dev libpng12-dev libdbus-1-dev libboost-dev libxml2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libwnck-dev libgconf2-dev libx11-xcb-dev libxslt1-dev libmetacity-dev libgnome-window-settings-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libdecoration0-dev gnome-control-center-dev intltool cython python2.6-dev 

Building Compiz 0.9.x

The 0.9.x development series (previously known as compiz++) is a drastic rework of compiz core and plugins. It also has a much changed buildsystem and hence it must be built in a specific way. We hope to have some kind of automated tool to do this in the future.

Core:

Build core first.

1. $ git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/compiz/core compiz (checkout core into compiz directory)
2. $ cd compiz
3. $ mkdir build (Building in the source directory is not supported)
4. $ cd build
5. $ cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=[where do you want compiz installed if not /usr/lib]

This last command will configure the build. There are also other build variables that can be set with -D[variable]=[...]. You can also use ccmake to get a more interactive configuration system.

Available Compiz cmake variables:

COMPIZ_DEFAULT_PLUGINS : default active plugin list (comma separated) that is added to the core xml/gconf schema file.
COMPIZ_DISABLE_PLUGIN_[PLUGIN NAME] : set it to On to disable building of the plugin
COMPIZ_INSTALL_GCONF_SCHEMA_DIR : directory where the gconf schema files should be installed
USE_(GCONF|GNOME|GNOME_KEYBINDINGS|GTK|METACITY|KDE4) : set it to false to disable build of the specified feature

6. $ make (build)
7. $ [sudo] make install (install)
8. $ sudo make findcompiz_install

This installs the FindCompiz.cmake module into the cmake module directory. This does only to be done once, if we don't improve this module in the future

LibCompizConfig:

Libcompizconfig will provide ccp (compiz config plugin) which will ultimately allow ccsm to function properly. Libcompizconfig now uses the cmake buildsystem but first you want to make sure to set the pkgconfig path correctly.

1. $ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig (here, PREFIX is the path where we've installed core)
2. $ git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/compiz/compizconfig/libcompizconfig (checkout the source)
3. $ mkdir build (Building in the source directory is not supported)
4. $ cd build
5. $ cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PREFIX
6. $ make && [sudo] make install (build and install)
7. $ sudo make findcompizconfig_install

CompizConfig-Python:

Compizconfig-python is needed to allow ccsm to interface with libcompizconfig. Again, make sure LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set correctly.

1. $ git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/compiz/compizconfig/compizconfig-python (checkout the source)
2. $ cd compizconfig-python
3. $ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig sudo -E python ./setup.py install --prefix=$PREFIX

CCSM:

CCSM is the Compiz Config Settings Manager. It will allow configuration of compiz through use of the ccp plugin.

1. $ git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/compiz/compizconfig/ccsm (checkout the source)
2. READ the INSTALL file. (Instructions to install ccsm)
3. $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PREFIX/lib/ PYTHONPATH=$PREFIX/lib/python2.6/site-packages $PREFIX/bin/ccsm (Run ccsm)

To run ccsm, we want to make sure to set these env vars correctly and of course, PREFIX is the same place to where we've been installing everything so far.

Individual Plugins:

Currently all already ported plugins are in the compiz/plugins/* repositiores.

1.  $ git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/compiz/plugins/[plugin] (Checkout a already ported plugin)
2.  $ cd [plugin]
3.  $ mkdir build
4.  $ cd build

4.5 If you want, you can install the plugin globally. This is required for plugins that are used by other plugins:

   $ export BUILD_GLOBAL=true cmake .. or cmake .. -DCOMPIZ_PLUGIN_INSTALL_TYPE="compiz"

INSTEAD of step 5. 4.7 If you are using a prefix other than /usr/local and have another compiz installation, you will need to do

   $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=[/path/to/prefix]

INSTEAD of step 5. Just add this argument if you are doing step 5.5 as well.

5. $ cmake .. (configure the plugin)

The plugin will be installed into you home directory unless you do step 4.5.

6. $ make
7. $ [sudo] -E make install

If you want to compile more plugins at once: 1. Repeat the steps 1-3 from above for each plugin

2. $ cp [your compiz checkout]/cmake/all_plugins_in_folder_example-CMakeLists.txt CMakeLists.txt (copy our all plugin cmake build file)
3. $ mkdir build (create a build directory for all plugins)

3.5 If you want, you can install the plugin globally. This is required for plugins that are used by other plugins:

   $ export BUILD_GLOBAL=true cmake .. or cmake .. -DCOMPIZ_PLUGIN_INSTALL_TYPE="compiz"

INSTEAD of step 4. 3.7 If you are using a prefix other than /usr/local and have another compiz installation, you will need to do

   $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=[/path/to/prefix]

INSTEAD of step 4. Just add this argument if you are doing step 5.5 as well.

4. $ cmake ..
5. $ make
6. $ [sudo] make install

Plugin packs:

Most all plugins have been ported to 0.9 and added to their respective plugin-packs using git submodules.

NOTE: plugins-unsupported needs to be installed then built a second time for all elements to be built due to the nature of the elements sub-plugin build system.

1. $ git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/compiz/plugins-(main|extra|unsupported)
2. $ cd [plugin-pack]
3. $ git submodule init
4. $ git submodule update
5. $ mkdir build
6. $ cd build
7. $ cmake ..
8. $ make
9. $ [sudo] make install

Updating plugin packs:

To update all plugins for one of the packages, use submodule update from the plugin-pack directory.

1. $ git pull
2. $ git submodule update

The install of the plugin may fail, if you have another version (0.8.x/0.7.x) of compiz installed. In this case pkg-config might pick the wrong compiz.pc file. There are several ways to fix this: 1. Delete the other compiz.pc (Do this only if you don't want to build any of the old compiz plugins/packages anymore) 2. Put the new compiz prefix before the old one into you PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable 3. If the new installation prefix is not already in your PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable you can use the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX cmake variable also to build plugins.

Running compiz:

If you've installed to a nonstandard prefix, you will want to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly. If your drivers are capable of direct rendering (nvidia or drivers using DRI2), you can omit --indirect-rendering. Read more about ccp above.

1. $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PREFIX/lib $PREFIX/bin/compiz --replace --indirect-rendering ccp
