Hi guys, I’ve always been able to update my system, and I’ve had Compiz with Emerald Window Manager running for a while. For some reason this time there seems to be a problem with a package or two, could be libjpeg… and others…
This is the update error:
could not satisfy dependencies:
- removing compiz-fusion-plugins-main breaks dependency ‘compiz-fusion-plugins-main’ required by compiz-fusion-plugins-extra,
- if possible, remove compiz-fusion-plugins-extra and retry
Now, I don’t want to remove Compiz… I like it.
How can I keep my system (at least most of it) updated?
I’m a bit of a newby!
sudo pacman -Syu
Don’t cut/paste what you think is relevant. Post entire transaction.
Just to clarify
- compiz is the window manager
- emerald is the window decorator
Currently I am experimenting with running compiz as window manager instead of openbox - and I like it so far.
There is a package in the repo
compiz-easy-patch maintained by @lectrode (build by me when needed) recently rebuilt a few days ago and pushed to unstable.
Besides the above mentioned package I build from AUR
This works perfect for me on unstable branch.
Hi thanks for replying so soon. I am a newby, I should have posted this probably.
sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases…
core is up to date
extra is up to date

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing libjpeg-turbo (2.0.6-1) breaks dependency ‘libjpeg>=7’ required by compiz-fusion-plugins-main
It looks like this is one of the problems as mentioned before. Libjpeg to a newer version.

Correct, I shouldn’t have typed my post in 30 seconds = )
Thanks for replying, I read your reply, but I’m a bit of a noob, what do you suggest I install?
compiz-easy-patch What exactly will this package do? I like very much the way I’ve tweaked Compiz, will this mess up the settings?
Thanks very much!
It will install the 0.9.x version of compiz
I don’t think so - but you are the only one to live and tell the story
Generally speaking - updating a package usullay don’t mess with the user’s settings.
Translated it means - as the package probably is an AUR package - you will need to remove it and rebuild it with the new dependencies for the parent application to function as expected. Please note that such removal/rebuild does not touch user settings.
