[REPO] compton 0.1~beta2+82-1 available in jessie-backports

compton, the X11 compositor used by default in BL, is now available in our jessie-backports repo in version 0.1~beta2+82-1.

It is different from the compton packaged by Debian in that it is built straight from the latest development sources, git revision v0.1_beta2-82-gd7f95b5. Debian's packaged revision is from 2013 and completely obsolete.

Users who experience problems with their composited desktop (screen tearing during video playback or scrolling in applications like Iceweasel/Firefox and Chrome/Chromium, etc) are encouraged to upgrade and test this up-to-date version. General performance improvements are possible, too. This version also contains the xr_glx_hybrid backend.

To install, make sure that our backports repository is correctly configured on your system, and then just

# apt-get -t jessie-backports install compton

AWESOME!  That cleared up my 'tearing'.  I'll take that off my list of things to do.

Thank you!

Re: [REPO] compton 0.1~beta2+82-1 available in jessie-backports

I don't understand ... "cpol" tells me after doing:

sudo apt-get -t jessie-backports install compton

that I have v0.1~beta2-1 0 which is the jessie version ... but the apt-get just installed it.

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen-jessie-backports.list exists with the proper line:

deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian jessie-backports main

And it did clean up my tearing ... just tested with a flim I watched earlier today.

Confused.

Hm, no? It works correctly on my install. Install compton -> installs Debian version although backports are available -> apt-get install -t jessie-backports compton -> installs the backports version alright.

Do you have our backports repo enabled?

Update?  No one mentioned update!  And dumb-dumb here didn't think of it.  DUH!  Another S11 OOPS!

OK updated and got the backport version of compton.

Also it didn't get rid of my tearing but reduced it to the point its "hardly" noticeable ... I missed it the first time.

Thanks Guys

ALSO: I didn't add "jessie-backports" today, it was done quite some time back.

Verified that tearing is fixed on my hardware, which has a GeForce GT 610, though I should add I also installed the Gallium VDPAU driver first; I'd have to uninstall that driver to check if the Compton patch alone does the trick.

Great, this backports idea/implementation is what I see as a real "distro" now.

Just tried it..it is buggy and unsupported sad

I now have a zombie window that has disappeared off the screen and won't come back! The icon is there but unresponsive, and OB knows it is there somewhere.

Requests for backports should go in their own thread.

I'm curious what settings people are using for compton. I'll open a thread...
