Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Rotate Up And Down?

Apr 16, 2010

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)

Ubuntu :: Can't Rotate Compiz Cube

Feb 23, 2011

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.

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?

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Visual Echo On Cube Rotate

May 7, 2010

Here's a strange compiz effect - odd visual echo when you rotate the cube. I kept my /home partition from the Lucid beta testing and compiz seems to have problems with it - looks like I will have to do a complete format and reinstall to solve this. I already purged and reinstalled compiz and anything I could find associated with it. Anyone else suffering from a buggy compiz? The strange thing is - this only occurs 1 out of 10 boots???

Ubuntu :: (Compiz) Middle Click On Firefox Doesn't Rotate The Cube?

Oct 13, 2010

I was just wondering about something. I have linked the middle click to initiate the cube rotation and it works perfectly except when I have the cursor on firefox. Then it just acts like I middleclicked in firefox itself. Personally I like this behaviour but was wondering why it is JUST firefox that has it. Would be great if I could achieve the same in Blender

Ubuntu :: Screen Goes Dark On Cube Rotate?

Dec 22, 2010

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

Ubuntu :: Cannot Rotate Cube With Mouse Wheel Since 9.10 Upgrade

Jan 7, 2010

Everything worked fine with Jaunty 9.04, but I haven't had any luck getting the "cube" to rotate using the mouse wheel since I upgraded to Karmic 9.10. The other ways to rotate the cube still work with karmic. Note that I upgraded from jaunty to karmic...not a clean install. Viewport switcher and rotate cube are both enabled.

Ubuntu :: Rotate Cube With Mouse Scroll (Karmic)

Mar 17, 2010

I just switched from Jaunty to Karmic, and in the process of setting up desktop effects, I'm having a hard time with configuring the rotate cube compiz effect. Before, I was able to scroll on the desktop (ie, not over a window/application) to spin the cube to the next face. Now, it seems that I either have to use keyboard shortcuts or lose the ability to scroll in applications.

I've tried enabling the mouse scrolling to button 4/button 5 a la this post, but this doesn't fix the problem. This is one of the few desktop effects that really made a difference in terms of convenience, so I'd really like to be able to fix this setting.

Ubuntu :: Radeon + Compiz + Rotate = Display Corruption

Apr 21, 2011

Installed Natty a few days ago and everything was working fine. I have a dual head setup with the left monitor rotated Clockwise 90 degrees (AKA rotate left). When I setup the the displays properly, instead of just cloning, I noticed a problem, making Unity unusable. When I apply the rotation either in the xorg.conf fle or using xrandr, the display shows a corrupt looking image. When I turn compiz off and use metacity instead it works perfectly fine.

Display Adapter:

Code:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450]

xorg.conf:

Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Desktop"
Screen "RightScreen"
Screen "LeftScreen" LeftOf "RightScreen"

[code]....

Ubuntu :: Desktop Cube Broke Compiz?

Apr 29, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube, Applications From Last Viewport On All Sides?

Apr 19, 2010

I have managed to get Compiz Desktop Cube working with 4 viewports. Everything is great but I have noticed the that cube will show the running applications in the bottom panel, from the previously active viewport, on all sides of the cube.

Anyone know how to set it so that the bottom panel on each side of the cube displays only the applications that are running in the currently visible viewport? I hope that's clear because I'm not 100% sure of the terminology.er to determine the viewport you are looking for.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Rotation Slow In 10.04 With Firefox?

May 19, 2010

I have recently done a clean install of Lucid Lynx and set everything up the way I had it in Jaunty (skipped Karmic). However, I am now having problems with the Compiz Cube and Firefox 3.6.

Whenever I rotate my workspace that contains a Firefox window that is active, the animation is very jerky and slow. It is fine if Firefox is a background window. This was never a problem in Jaunty with Firefox 3.0.

Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know how I might be able to fix it? I have tried disabling all addons in Firefox.

My PC: Core 2 Duo E7400, Geforce 7010 (onboard), 2GB RAM

UPDATE: starting Firefox in Safe Mode seems to help a little. Not sure why though...

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Disables Vertical Viewport Switching

May 13, 2010

I have sixteen workspacess arranged in a 4x4 square. When the Compiz desktop cube is enabled, I can only switch between four of them on a row. All keys that would otherwise allow me to switch up and down between rows are disabled, even the ones I set outside of Compiz.

What is worst is that even the Window switchers are unable to change the current row I am on. If I use the Ring, Shift or Static switchers' "All Workspaces" modes, I can see the windows on all sixteen workspaces - but trying to switch to a window that is above or below the row I am currently on will only rotate around to the correct workspace's column, but not actually bring up the workspace the window is on. To navigate between all workspaces, I have to use the "Expose" feature.

Is there any way I can have a cube for horizontal navigation, but keep ordinary vertical navigation?

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Cannot Modify Cube Reflection And Deformation Settings

Oct 10, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop and installed the AMD restricted drivers (Radeon HD 5770). I installed compizconfig-settings-manager and compiz-fusion-plugins-extra. All of the plugins have worked fine so far. However, while "Cube Reflection and Deformation" works, I cannot change the settings. Specifically, I tried changing the cube caps from the visually irritating logos to which it defaults to plain white, but the logos stayed. I also tried removing the annoying "Reflection" option, but to no avail.

I soon discovered that none of my settings would apply to the plugin, although they would display as though they were applied in the settings manager. Changing the settings in other plugins, like "Desktop Cube," works fine. So far, I am sticking just with the "Desktop Cube," "Rotate Cube," and "3D Windows" plugins, but I would really like that cylinder. And I have used Compiz, including the deformation plugin, for years with no difficulty.

Ubuntu :: Compiz And 11.04 - Enabling Desktop Cube Screwed Up Unity?

Apr 28, 2011

I installed with the image, running alongside Windows 7 on my desktop. I hadn't been in Ubuntu on my laptop for awhile, and hadn't experienced the 11.04 alpha's yet, so I didn't know there would be substantial changes. Obviously, Unity instead of Gnome surprised me a bit, but I have liked it so far.

But here lies the problem. I installed Compiz and ccsm through the software center, then went to enable the desktop cube and rotating cube. I clicked enable/disable on everything that popped up, but I think I must have disabled Unity (whoops). The whole desktop basically disappeared; that is, the dock on the left was gone and the window borders disappeared. I was able to close the windows with Alt+F4, but then couldn't open anything back up. The Super key didn't activate the dock, so it's not like it was hiding. I thought no problem, it'll start back up when I reboot. No dice. Still just the background, nothing to interact with. Only way to do anything is to reboot into with Ctrl+Alt+Dlt.

how do I fix this? Ha sorry for not reading forums beforehand, as I could've avoided this problem. Haven't found any threads on how to fix it, so I decided to start my own.

Fedora :: Rotate The Pen When Rotate The Screen?

Sep 7, 2009

how can I rotate the pen when I rotate the screen, and I would like to share this knowledge to other people who may have the same problem I had.

I have a tablet fujitsu-siemens t5010 with installed the wacum packages by default, and the pen was working, but couldn't rotate with xsetwacom command.

In Fedora 10, most guides refer to the wacom device as "stylus" which doesn't work on Fedora 11. I run command " $ xinput list " and I found the line

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5) eraser"id=3[XExtensionKeyboard]

and some lines before there is:

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5)"id=2[XExtensionKeyboard]
^^^^^^ this is the name of the device xsetwacom command needs! ^^^^^^^

I wrote first the line with the eraser cause I suppose that even someone has different wacom model, the eraser will be easy to find by grep command ( $ xinput list | grep -i eraser ), and common in most configures.

now , the edited script I use becomes like this:

#!/bin/sh
if [ $1 == 'normal' ]
then
xrandr -o normal
xsetwacom set "PnP Device (FUJ02e5)" rotate 0

[Code].....

It would be awesome if it chat could happened automatically , simply by rotating the screen, like it happens on Vista. I'll try to find out any solution and update this post if I make it !

Ubuntu :: Rotate One Of Two Monitors?

Feb 11, 2011

I have one Dell Ultrasharp U3011 (30", 2560x1600) and one Dell Ultrasharp 2007FP (20", 1600x1200)

When the 2007FP is in landscape mode it matches nearly perfectly in height both pixel and physically wise to the U3011.

See my example picture from my Win 7 dual boot below:

Two Monitors? Ridiculous... by mattlach, on Flickr

The only way I was able to get this to work in Ubuntu was to run two separate X desktops and rotate the 2007FP manually in xorg.conf, and then join them by enabling Xinerama.

Two problems with this solution.

1.) Xinerama is deprecated in favor of Xrandr which I have not been able to make do this.

2.) When using Xinerama Compiz/XGL is disabled, making the desktop feel awfully flat.

Is there any way to avoid this? Is there any way to rotate just one of your displays and maintain Compiz/XGL functionality?

This is on the top computer in my signature.

Ubuntu :: Copy A Portion Of Previous Log To New Log After Rotate?

Jul 12, 2010

I have installed fail2ban and it is working great. It is monitoring the auth.log and it's own log. Now here is my question... Every week, my log files rotate, which is just fine for the most part. But this also rotates the fail2ban log and removes any chance of catching a repeated IP from Sunday to Monday. Is it possible to copy a portion of the previous log to the new log?Here is my scenario of what I would like to accomplish, but I am a novice here so please be specific..

logrotate does its job as expected... then a script writes a portion of the previous log to the new log then appends a word/number after that portion (we call this log.1)...next time the log rotates (creating log.2), I want to take the portion of log.1 after the word/number and append it to log.2 along with another word/numberThis will always ensure there is at least 1 week backlog in the logs for fail2ban to track. I don't want to just change the frequency of the log-roll because it doesn't solve the issue of tracking across the log roll
