[Bug 1436553] Re: Transparent windows render black with Gtk3.16 and compiz


What is this branch doing wrong? Out of the messages I get from Compiz
in .xsession-errors, only these appear to be warnings and I don't think
they are new (I KNOW the one about decoration is not)

compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: ccp
compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: composite
compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: composite
Failure: Module initialization failed
compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: opengl
compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: opengl

compiz (decor) - Warn: No default decoration found, placement will not
be correct

I see one more commit since last night, I am going to apply that to my

I assume this branch will remain available at this repository? Ubuntu is likely to abandon compiz with their focus on GNOME, and compiz-reloaded is talking about possibly switching their fork to 0.9.13 with the Unity support stripped out.  In the 0.8 branch of compiz all attempts by multiple authors to advertise GTK_FRAME_EXTENTS support broke plugins interacting with windows.

Thus, if compiz 0.8 becomes the last version standing, I will have to
patch Gtk not to require GTK_FRAME_EXTENTS support (revert the offending
commit locally) so any version of compiz will work.
