There are a few of the compiz unsupported plugins that i want. Namely screensaver, and freewins. Neither of those is included in any rpm on the repo’s i have searched on, so i decided to build them myself. I expected them to just use make, but apparently they use cmake, so i installed that and gave it a try. Simply put, it doesn’t work at all on either of them. It finds many errors. Has anybody successfully compiled either of these, or any other compiz plugins, using cmake? I am on 11.3 if it helps.
Just thought it would be a good idea to post the output from CMake here. This is the ouput when trying to run it on freewins
