I downloaded and installed compiz, and edited settings in simple compizconfig manager. The 3D effect of desktop is assigned ' none '. But when I try to rotate the cube, it's a cylinder. I rechecked the settings, but is still set to ' none '.
i'm using a 64 bit system. i'm running cube deformation with cylinder.i am unable to make my cube caps transparent.i've deleted the original cap settings.i have also attempted to log out and in again to see if it would change.also.....my mouse is not changing to it's new pointer when i'm active in compiz.when compiz is off my mouse change is set, when it is on it stays as the white pointer unless i'm on firefox.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 and I am running it on Ubuntu classic due to not caring for Unity very much. I have an Acer Aspire 5739 and a Nvidia GEForce GT 130M graphics card. Is there any way to have a 3D desktop cube again?
I have read many posts on here and else where and still have not managed to get it working. (I am fairly new to Linux btw so just try to keep that in mind when replying)
I've recently enabled the fun stuff with compiz but I've run into a sort of problem... I want 9 desktops in a 3x3 grid (yeah, weird I know) but if I'm using the cube I can only rotate left and right... which is pretty weak sauce. Is there any way to (preferred) have desktops on the top and bottom of the cube and be able to bind a key combo to rotate up and down (ctrl-alt-up/down)? I *could* put 9 desktops in a row, but I really don't like that solution - it takes too many flips to make it from one desktop to another.
Compiz is all full of beautiful (especially burning the windows on close)
I have installed Lucid on my G4 Cube and it works fine except that I only get a video signal on the VGA connector. I would like to use my 15" Apple Studio LCD, but cannot get a signal on the ADC connector. If I boot the the original OS 9 CD, it works, so I don't think it is a hardware problem. I have tried creating an xorg.conf file with many different setting - still no signal to the LCD.
Upgraded to 10.10 yesterday, something I noticed is that I cannot enable 3D feature with cube? Loaded all of Compiz and drivers, downloaded latest nvidia, but option still "greyed" out. Worked fine with 10.04..
I use the hotkey ctrl+alt+left click in Blender to zoom object... So I didn't want Compiz to use the same key to move around the cube. I changed a setting in window move, and either the old or the new key works. New is alt+1 but it does nothing, same with ctrl+alt+left click. Also, I want the move around hotkey to be something like super+m or ctrl+m etc.
I'm trying to get desktop cube in compiz to work. I can select it and create a key combination for it, but I can't get it to work. I tried creating new workspaces and making less but the cube never shows up.
1. how I can "roll up" a program window by using the mousewheel? At work we have SLED 10/KDE (Ubuntu/Gnome is "better"), and there I can do it that way. It would be nice if I could do it here at home, in Ubuntu 10.04, too.
2. in "Gutsy Gibbon", I could turn the Compiz cube with the mousewheel. Can this be done with the mousewheel in 10.04 too, and if so, how? I don't seem to find it in the CompizConfig Settings Manager (or I'm missing it, which wouldn't be so strange, considering the countless things one can change in Ubuntu).
Im hooking up my cube (lol) i already got the image for the top using compiz, wich i dont like because the image is a see thru. but whatever...what i want now is to be able to set the same or another image for the bottom of the cube, is that possible?
I tried using ccsm to get the cube desktop working on ubuntu 10.04. After reading through many of the forums here on how to get the cube working I still could not find an answer for 10.04. Changed my settings with gconf-editor to disable Nautilus show desktop and a few other recommended setting and nothing worked. Also, for some reason, ccsm did not have the Wallpaper option (its supposed to be under utility), and I think it was necessary for the cube in some way.
I wanting to install the atlantis cube for compiz and having no luck installing it I have tried the steps of going into the terminal and obtaining the files through git but it cant find them I am a bit stuck on what to do next.
I've been playing around with the cube in CCSM and I've seen some videos on ..... that have windows XP on one side of the cube and on the other three sides, it still has Ubuntu. I was wondering how i would do that? If it makes a difference, I wanted to do that with Vista instead of XP.
I am a newbie and loving Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I have my cube working great with all the associated effects yet after about 20 minutes or so, the cube options are all unchecked and I no longer have the cube. What could be causing this? Initially I thought it was only after reboot but I left the house today for 20 minutes and when I came back I had no box and sure enough the cube options were unchecked.
Just installed 11.04 (Natty). Graphics card is Radeon 9200When I enable Cube in the compizconfig settings manager and rotate the cube, the cube goes almost black. This happens with both drag and keyboard rotate. The background is fine. Everything is defaults and no other effects are enabled.Also, the entire screen goes dark when "opacity when not rotating" is set to anything but 100%.This worked fine with with my previous version 8.04, though I think it used a proprietary driver.Questions:Should I be using a proprietary driver this card? Apparently you have to install a long list of packages first: XFree86-Mesa-libGL libstdc++ libgcc XFree86-libs fontconfig expat freetype zlib
Running Ubuntu Netbook remix on a Toshiba NB500-upgraded to 2 Gigabytes RAM. Very slow opening applications via the side icons. 8-12 seconds. Is that normal for this distro? - No 3D cube. Installed related compiz software, adjusted settings, ticked cubes etc. Not a peep. - No direct desktop access. Only via side icons. Just find it fiddly re: using desktop and changing background via side icons. Couple other items (MBB for one) but for another category.
I was just experimenting with compiz effects on Natty 11.04, and when I clicked desktop cube (which I'm assuming you're not supposed to do, haha), my compiz broke. The pop up windows are way at the top of the screen, almost out of view, and the windows lack the close, minimize, and maximize buttons. I tried reinstalling all the compiz plugins, and when I rebooted I had the same problem! I am using metacity right now, but I would be very sad if i was stuck with it.
