For those who are running a system which can install libmutter-3.8+, we're looking for testers for this branch https://code.launchpad.net/~gala-dev/gala/mutter38/+merge/179604
. Gala should behave the same as in luna, we're looking for any differences.
Two known things:
- Gala may not start on system startup, in that case you'll need to start it from a tty with the "-d :0" option
- there might be greyish flickering while switching workspaces
Short how-to on how to get this gala:
$ bzr branch lp:~gala-dev/gala/mutter38 gala-mutter38
$ cd gala-mutter38
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ sudo apt-get build-dep gala
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
now you can run gala with "./gala --replace", or you can install it with "sudo make install", which will make it default and can be executed with "gala --replace".
