Re: [opensuse-gnome] Abandoning Unity for some time...

Dear all,

Regarding Unity, I haven't reached actually satisfactory results from
most of the git snapshots I've made from Compiz. I haven't managed to
even launch it one single time (currently breaks because of missing
keys in gconf), and the only thing I'm getting from it is actually
frustration. I recon now this task requires far more than I can offer,
so I'm leaving it behind until it reaches a more mature state,
hopefully with an official release of Compiz and more documentation
from Compiz/Unity.

Hi Nelson,

I am the compiz maintainer :) Could you let me know what the problems
you are facing are? There are some stability problems at the moment,
but I am sure it is something simple that we might have overlooked
when doing this.


If anyone wants to take it, go for it, I'm not deleting any packages
and will continue updating them. If no one looks into it, I'll wait
until there's an official release from Compiz from the development
branch required for Unity and pick it up from there, hopefully by
then, things will be more mature. Right now, all I'm getting out of
this is frustration, and this is neither good for me or openSUSE, it's
supposed to be fun... Either way I have many reservations regarding if
a non-tech oriented person like me will ever be able to pull this one
out, I have this tiny feeling it's too much sand for my truck.

Regarding releases there should be one in the next coming days, before
the feature freeze. At the moment git is a little bit all over the
place since we're shuffling to try and get the feature specifications
implemented before freeze (for example I plan to dump a +3000 line
diff to the gtk decorator in the coming days and that isn't going to
be too much fun). My apologies for that.

If anybody needs any help with this, please feel free to shoot me a
note or ping me on irc (smspillaz on freenode) and I should be able to
be of assistance
