Ubuntu :: Compiz Config Settings Manager In Lucid

Aug 2, 2010

So I decided a while ago to download the newest distribution release, Lucid Lynx, and try it out on a LiveCD. The first thing I installed onto the LiveCD environment was CompizConfig Settings Manager. One question I have about it is... Why are so many of the plugins missing or limited?

In 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, there are many plugin options, and to be honest, I use a large quantity of them. For example, a plugin I use on 9.04 called "Reflection." For those of you who don't know, reflection allows you to show an image in window decorations and shadows. This plugin is completely missing from CompizConfig Settings Manager in 10.04!

Another example, this time a limited one, is the Animations plugin. It's missing the option for closing animation called "Burn." This is an animation I LOVE showing off and using, yet it's... Gone.

Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong on installing it? Is there a way to get the parts that are missing?

Just in case you're wondering how I installed it, it was the popular method of using GNOME-Terminal and typing:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm Simple-greeter Config Fails, Squeeze Amd64?

Jul 1, 2010

I want to set the login to the old default of having to enter a username,password. I've tried to use the configuration editor to achieve this and have ticked the "disable-user-list" option under /apps/gdm/simple-greeter but it makes no difference, the greeter still starts with a user list. It appears that the default valuef TRUE for this function is overriding my choice, but I'm notre why. My next step appears to be to edit /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults to change the default value. I haven't actually tried that yet so not sure if it would work but, even if it does, it doesn't seem a very elegant way of setting this up. Is there some simple way of changing the behaviour back to asking for username first?

I seem to remember the whole login process as being more configurable than it is now, with options to choose backgrounds, allow root accest finystem->administration->login_screen only gives a choice between selecting a user or automatic login of a particular user, with no further options available.On a general note, would the old method not be a more secure default than presenting an unauthorised user with a list of login id's to be tried?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Config On 10.10 - Command To Log Out?

Jul 8, 2011

Since installing Compiz Config Settings Manager on my Ubuntu 10.10 the system logs out when I leave the machine idle for a while. This is very irritating and I cannot find any settings to change - the power settings are OK, set to never switch off and to activate screensaver after 30 mins and to keep screen unlocked. Where on earth does the system pick up a command to log out?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Config - Lost All Hotkey Abilities?

Jan 7, 2011

I want t desktop cube, so I followed the ..... guide here.

When I enter simple compiz config and start to change the Ultimate profile, then I lose the ability to do key commands like alt+tab and consequently I cannot use things like the switcher, or cube. The only desktop hotkeys that I can currently do (that I know of) is ctrl+alt+left/right to move to next desktop. How do I enable hotkeys to work again?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Config Trouble On 11.04 Natty Narwhal?

May 10, 2011

I am having some trouble using the compiz config settings on the new "Natty Narwhal" 11.04. On 10.4, it worked seamlessly; the 3D desktop cube worked, 3D windows worked, and rotating desktop cube also worked. On Natty Narwhal, nothing works-- at all. It may seem kind of childish for me to download compiz config just for the cube, but the fact that compiz config alone isn't even working is kind of making me nervous. Though, it would be great if someone could help me with the cube.

Software :: Compiz-config And Workspaces - NVidia Driver ?

Feb 13, 2011

A couple of issues with compiz. I'm setting up Debian Squeeze on a new-to-me laptop. Video card is nVidia Quadro FX 570M.

I installed the nVidia non-free driver, and that's working fine. Compiz starts up ok (I say "compiz --replace"). At least some of the effects are working, and the windows look normal.

First issue: as soon as I start Compiz, the number of workspaces goes from 4 to 2. And Workspace Switcher Preferences (the thing that pops up when you right-click the workspace switcher in the Gnome Panel) no longer shows the controls for changing the number of workspaces.

Is there is a way to change the no. of workspaces using gnome configuration editor? That might be a good workaround.

The second issue is, compizconfig-settings-manager will not run, whether Compiz is running or not. I don�t know if it would run before I installed the nVidia driver (Compiz wouldn't run so there was no reason to try CCSM). When I try to start it from the menu, I get the spinning cursor for several seconds, and that's all. When I say "ccsm" in a console...


I dont think the locale error is the problem. I get locale warnings all the time, like when I use apt-get, but it doesnt stop the program from running. But I could be wrong about that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Compiz - Config Not Working - Check Says No Rendering In Use

Feb 9, 2011

i have ubuntu studio 10.04 installed and this is my second installation of the system. now that i have updated the system, got the fglrx drivers for my ATI HD5750, installed compiz-config-settings and glx-dock (aka cairo-dock). the first time i started the glx-dock, half of the dock was visible and it was distorted all over. so i ran compiz-config-settings for the first time and saw that it wasn't also working. then i tried to find a solution for a few valuable hours because it was essential to customize the feel of an OS but i think i have came to a point that i should stop trying to learn things that i see for the first time but ask and hope for the best (soon). anyway i should say that compiz and cairo dock was working the first time i installed the system. now when i run compiz-check, it gives the following output:

Code: Gathering information about your system...

Graphics chip: ATI Technologies Inc Device 68be
Driver in use: fglrx
Rendering method: None

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]
Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

At least one check had to be skipped: Error: No rendering method in use (AIGLX, Xgl or Nvidia) ok AIGLX doesn't start, so i check Xorg.0.log and it says: (it has loaded and initialised AIGLX but maybe i misunderstand something, anyway you should see for yourself)

Fedora :: Installed Gnome-power-manager, And After Config It For "never Suspend"

Aug 28, 2010

I have a FC11 over AMD Sempron 2400+ 512Mb RAM and Im using it as 24 hours server, but after a few hours of work it makes something like suspend (don't response to network, clock freeze, etc. but screen works) till I touch mouse or keyboard.

I think this is a configuration item, but I'd searching about pm-utils and I found how config suspend and hibernate states, but nothing about what thing order a suspend every few hours.

I'd installed gnome-power-manager, and after config it for "never suspend", only change is, maybe, a bit more time before automatic suspend.

Networking :: Finding A Simple Web-based Group File Manager?

Jun 2, 2010

Is there a simple web-based solution for a group looking to securely share files online? The software needs to run on our own servers due to regulatory laws. I want users to be able to go to a web site, request an account (which I should be able to accept or reject), and upload/download/manage files in a web-based (preferably ajax-y) file manager. File access controls (via users/groups) is desirable.Yes, I know that SSH/SFTP is the 'proper' solution, but many of the users will be office workers and installing an SFTP client and configuring it is too advanced for them. Same goes for Samba+VPN setups...

Fedora :: Installing JWM Window Manager

Mar 17, 2010

I wanted to try the JWM window manager, which is not in the Fedora repository. The author's site gives no instructions, save for users of Irix (!), so after compiling and installing I needed to find how to have it on offer at log-in. I do not want to just have jwm launched after startx runs; I want the (Gnome) log-in where I can choose a desktop or window manager for the session.

I found that Icewm and Gnome have desktop-configuration files in /usr/share/xsessions, so I created one there for JWM using the other two as a model. What I can't find is where Gnome's session manager keeps the list of available sessions. I've searched the contents of /etc/X11/xinit/ and the configuration files in my home directory for a file containing "icewm" (which I do have available), and drawn a blank.

Fedora :: Software Manager And Installing Flash

Jul 25, 2011

I just moved to Fedora and absolutely love it so far. I have two questions... 1st, are there any other software managers available besides the default one? I could not find them. 2nd, I am having the worst time installing flash. It seems like it is not installed by default. The first time I installed fedora was about a week ago and afterwards I installed flash and it worked. Later on I erased everything from my computer and reinstalled fedora although now I cannot add flash to save my life. I've tried a bunch of different links with directions on how to do it but I cannot figure it out this time.

Fedora Installation :: Removing And Installing Different Windows Manager

Apr 13, 2011

Is it possible to install a different windows manager?Currently I am using a HP Netbook 210. The windows manager I am using is gnome-shell that comes as default with Fedora 15. However, I am wondering if I could completely remove this and install a different windows manager. For example I would like to try the xfce 4.8.

I am not talking about completely removing Fedora 15 and then installing Fedora 15 xfce spin. Just the window manager.How easy would it be to remove gnome-shell windows manager and then install xfce 4.8 windows manager?

Fedora :: Default File Manager In Gnome 3 After Installing XFCE?

Jul 22, 2011

I recently decided to install xfce-desktop as a fallback alternative whenever Gnome 3 has problems. Now I have the Thunar file manager opening up by default even when logged into Gnome (for example when using Alt-F2 and typing in a folder name, or when plugging in an iPod.) I've searched around for days but can't find any place to set a default file manager. The Default Applications dialogue doesn't include file manager, only web browser, video etc.)

Ubuntu :: Cannot See Expo In Compiz Setting Manager

I have installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 but didn't like the interface so on log in I just start in desktop mode. I am using the CompizConfig Setting Manager and want to activate Expo and other desktop extras. I have changed the System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects to extra but I still do not see Expo in ccsm. Do I need to install each plug in separately? I have included a screen shot of ccsm too.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Crashes File Manager?

Jul 31, 2011

I'm using Xubuntu Natty, and recently started using Compiz, mostly just for minimize animations and window previews. The problem is, whenever I have compiz on and try to do anything in the file manager other than opening folders or files, such as cutting and pasting a file to a different folder, the whole system crashes. I have PCmanFM as well as Thunar, and both do this. How can I fix compiz to not do this? I am tired of having to turn off my computer, and risking losing data. For now I have compiz turned off, but is there a way to fix this and still use it?
