OpenSUSE :: Compiz Non-Sliding Windows Option Nonexistent?

May 26, 2010

In the Compiz Fusion Desktop Wall plugin settings, I can normally find a "Non Sliding Windows" option (Or at least, I've been able to in recent installs of Ubuntu). However, in the default installation of Compiz that comes with OpenSUSE 11.2, I don't have that option. I double checked to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, and on my Ubuntu 10.4 laptop it IS present (In CCSM under the Desktop Wall Plugin's "Viewport Switching" tab). I even went so far as to check to see if it's in the gconf database, and it's not on Suse, but is on Ubuntu. Installing the compiz extras package did not help. I even tried putting the key into the gconf database on Suse, but of course it didn't work.

The only thing I noticed is that Suse appears to be using an older version of Compiz (Suse: compiz 0.7.8; Ubuntu: compiz 0.8.4). Being a fairly experienced linux user (however being new to Suse itself), I'd like to check if there is a simpler solution than compiling from scratch. Anyone ever run across this/solved this already? The final goal is to make my desktop wallpaper and gnome panels static when viewport sliding.

OpenSUSE Install :: Option (Installation Regarding To Opensuse And Windows Server 2008?

Mar 20, 2011

right now, my machine runs ubuntu 10.10 due to work issue, i need to use windows server 2008 R2 (its a windows exclusive company) but i never used any of the active directory or anything from the windows server (only experience with windows is visual studio and those GAMES!), so i figure i need to practice a bit on my own b4 starting the job and just at the same time I found out as a univ student i get it for free! And plus, I am finding opensuse a better option for me than ubuntu So im wondering what i should do regarding these 2 systems here s some option

1). Install openSuse 11.4, and install VirtualBox and use windows server 2008 R2 on vbox
2). Install windows server 2008 R2 and then install openSuse alongside with it
3). Install windows server 2008 R2 and install openSuse in virtualBox

I have been using linux as my primary OS for more than a year now and I rlly need it for both school and my own entertainment. So wondering which option would best work out for me

wat are your opinions? PS: my machine is about 2 years ago a Dell laptop, with core 2 duo p8700 (2.53ghz) 4GB ram, and nvidia gfx, which even tho is still fast, but isnt rlly that snappy when it comes to virtualization even running xp in a virtual machine is quite laggy at times :S

OpenSUSE :: Weird Compiz - 3D Windows Bug?

Jun 8, 2010

After having some problems with the latest Ubuntu release, I decided to give openSUSE another chance. This time I managed to get flawlessly working everything I needed, and I'm very satisfied with this distro so far.

That said, I encountered a weird glitch in Compiz, specifically with its 3D Windows plugin. It's not really a big deal, but it bugs me, so I might as well give it a shot and ask about it here. With the 3D Windows activated, this is what I get:

what causes this and how can I fix it? I'm using the latest NVIDIA propietary drivers. If you need me to post any additional info, I'll be happy to comply.

So I've been testing Gnome Do and I now want to activate docky. To do that I have to activate the desktop effects, so I installed drivers for my graphics card which work fine.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Rotate Cube Option - 360 Degrees

Feb 12, 2010

I used OpenSUSE today and in one of the options for Rotate Cube (in compiz) was something that let me adjust to what angle I could allow the cube to go up and down. If I set it to 360 degrees, I was able to rotate the cube in any which direction I pleased. Can I do this on Ubuntu?

OpenSUSE Install :: Should There Be Option To Download ISO Option For CD Installation

when I go to download 11.3 I am presented with the installation medium for a DVD installation with a button that says download DVD. Should there be an option to download an ISO option for a CD installation on this page along with the DVD version? Some of our older machines can only read CD's with a max size of 500+ megs.

SUSE :: Get The Option To Choose Windows Or The Installer At The Windows Boot Screen

Sep 16, 2010

I'm new to linux, and I'm just trying to learn OpenSUSE. I just installed it and I have a few quick questions. #1 I accidentally installed the "OpenSUSE Installer (LOCAL)" on Windows 7, so now I get the option to choose windows or the installer at the windows boot screen. I ended up just installing OpenSUSE on a completely different HD (my original intent) from a burned DVD, so this installer is useless and I don't know how to remove it.

#2 After installing opensuse on my second HD, the boot screen is now SUSE's instead of Windows, and I can choose suse's desktop, the suse failsafe, windows 1, and windows 2. Windows 1 brings me to the windows boot screen with the choice i mentioned above (windows or the local installer i accidentally installed), and windows 2 i assume is my second windows partition which is just my SWAP file, and selecting it does nothing (which would make sense if thats all it is).

My question here is how do I make it so my default boot screen is the windows one with an option between windows 7 or suse? Or would this require reinstalling the system? If it does and its simple enough to explain please do I wouldnt mind removing it and reinstalling at this point, I would just wipe my whole second HD from windows.

#3 I have a netgear adapter. unfortunitly i'm not at home right now and I don't remember the model, so I'll provide that this evening if necessary. What I do know is they do not have a driver for linux. I've found ACX100, but I didn't find my netgear adapter listed on their website. I also found NDISWrapper, but thats for XP and I still don't know if that'll work. I will of course try both unless someone here has a better solution. If anyone knows anything that will work on any netgear adapter for linux please let me know, if not then I'll provide the model later on.

Ubuntu :: Rsync Errors From Nonexistent Drive?

Feb 3, 2011

I am trying to backup my ~ directory to a portable drive. In the meantime rsync is giving me all kinds of messages like this:


This drive is neither plugged into my computer nor is it involved with my backup script:rsync $base_options -narv /home/noleks /media/Personal1/Linux_bak. I think the question is, does rsync have a queue somewhere of operations it did not complete? If so is there a way to rest this? It is possible something went awry with a previous sync on this drive but I cannot remember right now. Either way why is it trying to complete that sync when I'm asking it to do something else?

Ubuntu One :: Repeated Sync Of Nonexistent File

Sep 1, 2011

U1 is trying to sync a file which doesn't exist on any of the devices attached to the account nor in the cloud folder. I've tried using U1sdtool to stop it, including the following commands:

I've also tried actually creating a file of the same name that it keeps trying to sync in the hopes that it will latch onto that one instead, but no go. I tried deleting that file, but no go. It constantly loops through the same nonexistent file, over and over and over and over and over...

It also only does this on one device. It does not do that on the other devices.

And, yes, I've done u1sdtool --waiting, and there is the nonexistent file, on the list, with all of the real files that actually do need to be synced backed up behind it.

Fedora :: Nonexistent Drives Shown In Places Menu

Sep 16, 2010

I did some modification of fstab, and works, but for some strange reason, there are drives shown in the Places menu that shouldn't be there when the drives (they are usb drives) are unplugged. I had to put them in fstab, because they are mp3 players and I need user privelages in order to sync them. With nothing plugged in the usb ports,I checked, and they aren't shown in mtab, and only Sansa-e260 and JOSHS PHONE are shown in fstab, although as far as I know, they shouldn't appear in Places when unmounted. Is there a way to reset it?

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Menu Keeps Showing Nonexistent OS Entries / Get Rid Of These?

Jan 24, 2010

When I originally installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit, I had the following operating systems already installed:

Kubuntu 9.04
Windows 7
Windows XP

Ubuntu automagically created a GRUB2 menu that offered all of these, plus of course itself, which was fine for a while.

Later on, I deleted and reformatted the partitions that had been dedicated to Kubuntu 9.04. GRUB2 has failed to keep up. Despite running "sudo update-grub" multiple times, the GRUB2 menu continues to show entries for Kubuntu 9.04.

How do I get rid of these obsolete entries? The partitions it was on simply do not exist any longer, so I don't know how GRUB2 is picking it up.

I had already edited my fstab file to reflect the new partitioning scheme, so I don't know where GRUB2 is getting the idea that I still have Kubuntu 9.04 installed.

Ubuntu :: No "Show Desktop" Option In Compiz?

May 1, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.04, there is no "Show Desktop" option in Compiz. This option was in 9.10, and I want it back! How can I enable it again? I assume there is a way, because Compiz developers sometimes get a bit cooky and make certain options disappear or be impossible to disable (genie affect patent, animations cannot be disabled in 9.10). How can I reenable the Show Desktop option?

Ubuntu :: No Windows Borders Using Compiz

Apr 17, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 and after installing the drivers for my graphic card ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570, windows borders do not appear anymore. When I type "metacity --replace" borders come back, but I can't use compiz, also when I try to disable "Window Decoration" from the compizConfig Settings it doesn't work, it keeps always enabled. I tried this hack here [URL] but it didn't work for me (or I didn't apply it correctly, I'm new to the system).

Ubuntu :: Can't Click On Any Windows In Compiz

May 9, 2010

Just to preface this, I do have compiz running.

I'm facing a bug where any time I click anywhere inside a window, it performs the function of ALT-clicking the window -- just dragging it around the screen. The only way I can do a standard click on the window is if I hold down the ALT key.

I think this is a compiz issue, since it is fixed by killing compiz. I've had this issue before, but I can't remember how I solved it.

Ubuntu :: Boarderless Windows With Compiz

May 8, 2011

Last night I installed compiz-config and tried to activate the desktop cube and made the mistake of clicking through the alert messages without properly reading them, and then all of a sudden my window boarders disappeared. So now I have no close, minimise or maximise buttons. no file, edit, view, etc options and I cant move any windows. I completey removed compiz and the window boarders came back, but then when I re-installed it and started it with "compiz --replace" the boarders disappear again (in a side issue, now when I log in I have to manually start compiz with "compiz --replace", if anyone could help me with making compiz start by default again that would be great).

I'm currently using Natty 64-bit and the problem only seems present on Ubuntu Classic, Unity and fail safe mode both seem fine.

I'm pretty sure the issue is in a setting stored somewhere in /home as I only did a clean install last week and have /home on a separate partition so re-installing Ubuntu seemed like a quick solution but even after that the problem is still there.

Debian :: Some Windows Are Out Of Screen Using Compiz

Apr 29, 2010

I'm using debian lenny, my video card is an ATI x1300 series, I've installed compiz from the debian's repositories. All works fine except the next: Sometimes the windows appears out of screen, but this happens with windows related to the getfile function -for example: attach a file to an email, change the directory to download a file, seek some playlist file in "atun", etc.; so these windows appears in the top border of the screen, I can only watch the buttons "cancel" and "ok". I don't want to change the resolution every time this happens, so my question is: what should I change/edit to prevent this happen?

General :: How Does Compiz Decide Which Windows Should Be Sticky?

Dec 14, 2010

How does Compiz automatically decide which windows should be sticky (i.e. should be visible on all workspaces)? Windows such as gnome-panel and cairo-dock always stay on the visible workspace, without requiring additional configuration. How does Compiz figure this out?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Killed Windows Title Bar

May 3, 2011

I created a 2nd login that I set up with Gnome instead of Unity. Unity has a few things that drive me nuts like no notification area among other things. I want to still be able to access Unity to try to get used to it, but will probably use gnome mainly.Anyway, I like using the compiz desktop cube effect (also something I could not do in Unity). When I activated it, all my title bars (the top bar in most all windows) vanished. I have seen this before, but the normal fixes aren't working.

This is one thing that still bugs me about Linux/Ubuntu. A couple clicks and you just hose your desktop/ computer. It is not that easy to screw up a windows machine. It isn't even as if I clicked on something wrong.Is there a something about 11.04 that causes a bigger problem with compiz?

Ubuntu :: Ordering Of Windows For Compiz Scale?

Jun 23, 2011

I have a dual monitor setup and I've used Scale for a few days now, but I'm still confused about the expected ordering of the windows within the same workspace. For example, the last focused window isn't necessarily placed at a fixed spot, e.g., top left corner. It seems that if a window on my left monitor is last focused and I invoke it on my right screen, then it'd appear on the top left corner. However, if a window on my right monitor is last focused, it gets past just the last focused window on my left monitor. The last focused window on my left monitor eventually shifts to the bottom right corner.
