PPA description

PPA for the compton compositing manager. Upstream sources are at The sources packaged here, which are identical except for packaging information, are available at

The upstream sources are on the `upstream` branch; the `master` branch adds packaging information. The source packages that I upload are built with the help of my `kk-debuilder` utility (described at
  $ kk-debuilder --all-supported --all-unreleased --source-only

The version available in this PPA will follow the upstream master branch. (This PPA originally contained a fork of the upstream project, but my pull request has since been merged.)

I have incremented the version number of the package from `0.1~beta2` to `0.1~beta3` to ensure that these packages are considered newer than the older (c. 2013) ones in the main Ubuntu package repositories.

This PPA will provide packages for all supported and future releases. Right now, those are 14.04LTS ("trusty"), 16.04LTS ("xenial"), 17.10 ("artful"), and 18.04LTS ("bionic"). Launchpad does not accept new uploads for obsolete (i.e. unsupported) releases.

This PPA provides packages for x86, amd64, armhf, arm64, and ppc64el.

Debug symbols are available! After adding the PPA however you normally do, find the corresponding entry in `/etc/apt/sources.list.d`.
It will look like the first line below (though the suite name may be different if you are not using bionic); duplicate it and change the component name ("main") to "main/debug".
  deb bionic main
  deb bionic main/debug
