So here's what we should probably have as required information for testing results:

  1. from lspci -nnk
    1. PCI ID of graphics card
    2. name of graphics card
    3. kernel module being used
  2. with ps -o rss -C compton | numfmt --header --field=1 --to=iec --padding=5, run under the same conditions and after the same amount of time elapsed since starting compton
    1. with old compton
    2. with new (PPA) compton
  3. The tests should be run under the following conditions
    1. with several windows open
    2. the same configuration, preferably with lots of opacity and transparency and shadows
  4. additional checks
    1. try youtube videos in full screen
    2. anything else graphic intensive: games, etc.

kc2bez added a comment to T96: investigate yshui's compton fork.

I had a good test on my Acer Laptop. Laptop is somewhat low on resources. 1st gen i5 with 4G of RAM that is shared with the onboard Intel graphics. As far as resource usage it was almost identical with the original compton. 457 M for the original and 460 M for the new one. I had around 430 M with no compton installed. I used htop for all three measurements. I notice a bit of stuttering with both versions when moving windows around. I also tested the compton-conf that is shipped in Lubuntu and that seems to manage the config file fine. I see no downside currently.

wxl added a comment to T59: fix keyboard shortcuts.

In case it wasn't obvious, I believe I have a solution that will make the lxqt-globalkeys patches work. If people could use the above PPA to test (see here for a testcase), that would be great. This is very important because if we don't have some sort of solution here, we won't be able to include our own Lubuntu-specific changes to the lxqt-globalkeys config, which means we won't really be able to do anything with the shortcuts. Raman's put a lot of hard work here that I would not like to see go to waste, nor would I like to make some rash decisions before release to deal with the fact that the Super key conflicts. So please go test!!!

Strangely xdg-desktop-menu forceupdate isn't really behaving nice, but a log out and back in does the trick. I can change various attributes but that indeed seems to have no effect.

It does it on a live iso, I wouldn't think there was any cache.
I also did try this on a different .desktop file and I tried a logout and login as well as a reboot. They all still show.

I don't know this one off the top of my head, but you should see what environment variable the menu reads from to determine whether or not to show menu items. Probably in lxqt-panel.

We should bounce this to 20.04 IMHO. There are some issues still upstream, this one impacts us. Then there is this, this and this.
To top it off, I can't see where you can remove packages, only add them, we'd have to tinker on that too. As much as I would like to see it, I don't think it is ready for us at this time.

So I took the packaging for the current compton and tweaked it for the new one. I was freaked they use meson to build but it seems dh is all good with that. They do have a test.h submodule that's part of the build process that is going to included in the next release, due no later than next week. It was serendipity that while trying to figure that out, I noticed that in that same issue, someone had mentioned all the Ubuntu depends. So I trashed the old ones and used the new ones. I also dropped all the old patches. The only patch is the one for test.h.
