Compiling Compiz-Fusion on Slack 12


I'm trying to compile fusion by following this guide:

http://forums.opencompositing.org/vi...php?f=51&t=758

I've installed everything he says it's needed except "build-essential" and python-2.5-dev witch are for Debian/Ubuntu i guess.

I cannot compile it. I got all the stuff needed from GIT but when i started to compile

Quote:
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local --enable-librsvg --disable-kde && make && make install
I get:

Quote:
aclocal:configure.ac:23: warning: macro `AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT' not found in library
aclocal:configure.ac:157: warning: macro `AM_GCONF_SOURCE_2' not found in library
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf
configure.ac:23: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.ac:157: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GCONF_SOURCE_2
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
If i try to do:

Quote:
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local --enable-librsvg && make && make install
I get:

Quote:
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader
autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
metadata/Makefile.am:49: GCONF_SCHEMAS_INSTALL does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1
Any ideas anyone?

No one is using fusion on Slackware? Can't believe it's all Ubuntu.

That's a very old version. Doesn't have much if any of the function present in fusion/beryl.

It was released Apr 6, 2007 and is the latest release of compiz. Compiz-fusion are plugins. Beryl is no more. Try going to compiz.org and installing the plug-ins you want to have. There is a Compiz-Fusion discussion board on their forums.

Yes... april. Fusion will be the new Compiz but it's in alpha state now... was released only about 1 month ago i think. It merges all of beryl's cool features into the package... they should've called it Beryl Fusion not Compiz Fusion since it's about 80% beryl.

I'm reg'ed on their forum but it's not helpful... they are all using Ubuntu over there i guess. I got it running in Ubuntu in 10 minutes or so so it's brainless.

Anyway, i can't get it to compile whatever i do. Current error is:

Quote:
tltool-update.in' for reading (No such file or directory)
awk: cmd. line:1: fatal: cannot open file `./intltool-update.in' for reading (No such file or directory)
found
./configure: line 2512: test: : integer expression expected
configure: error: Your intltool is too old. You need intltool 0.23 or later.
I installed the latest version of intltool that i could find (0.35 i think). That error is not logical. Any idea what could be wrong?

Not quite. Compiz is the engine, and it will stay. Compiz Fusion will not replace compiz, but refers to a collection of plugins.
