I have a question before I do anything.
I have the previous compiz running on my debian testing. All is working except for ccsm not launching.
Do I remove everything (purge all the packages) and then install all the debs from the repository?
Thanks

Yes, remove and replace.

What error do you get with ccsm not launching if you try starting it from the terminal? Don't tell me I haven't added that rsvg package as a dependency...

I posted this in a previous post but here it is again. I appreciate the help.

That's odd...there's a Debian bug report for the same error with another application and Python 3 instead of Python 2.7:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=874202 (fixed)

Or here with python-2.7: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit- ... ssues/7542

So it seems to be a bug in Buster's python 2.7... Maybe some other repo or distro that uses compiz-reloaded has a fix for it. Let me look aroud the Net.

Here's another repo I set up with rebuilds from the tuxfamily compiz-reloaded repo. They conflict with the ones in my other repo, so hopefully apt or aptitude will replace them successfully. Most of the packages have "-reloaded" tacked onto the name. Just the compiz-reloaded package brings in all the rest, but it can't hurt to remove the other packages first.

The new ccsm-reloaded's main difference is that it's using a python-gtk3 GUI instead of python-gtk2, but I don't know if that will get rid of the error...I have some doubts.

I get the same error using the compiz-reloaded packages from the tuxfamily repo (0.8.14-0~stretch1) on debian testing. So it's not just the packages provided here. In case that somehow helps...

This is really hard to figure out when the MX 17 packages, which I also built in generic Stretch, don't throw the same error at all.

I found this thread: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47251562/how-to-fix-undefined-symbol-pyfpe-jbuf

This is usually a problem when you install a package with a Python installation that was compiled with the fpectl module (--with-fpectl compilation flag), and then switch to a Python installation that was compiled without this flag.


Further search results seem to indicate that fpectl was indeen removed in Debian a few months ago. There a a lot of bug reports about problems caused by that. My python installation doesn't have fpectl.

The Debian Python changelog (http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs/main/p/python2.7/python2.7_2.7.14-6_changelog) says "Stop building the fpectl extension" in August and "Add package breaks for extensions referencing symbols for the removed _PyFPE module." in September.

Might this be the problem?

My guess is that ccsm requires the fpectl module. Maybe the developers can fix the code so it doesn't require it...let me go look at the issues on the compiz-reloaded github.

Steve,
You mentioned in a different post that you had got compiz updated for Buster.
My system has some compiz installed but the ccsm is not working.
What would be the best way to update my system to get all the packages working?
I'll do some beta testing if you would like me to.
Thanks
Dan
