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?
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 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.
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???
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
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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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 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.
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.
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...
How can I get the cube rotation on a laptop with a touchpad? I love it on my desktop at work, really gets a great "WOW!" when people see it in action.I have the CSSM and extras installed, but can't figure out the keybindings with the touchpad.....
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?
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.
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.
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.
"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
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 !
My CPU has begun running about 10 degrees hotter than it has been up until today. normally it was at a reasonable 42-46 degrees when streaming hd video. Now its climbing up to as high as 57 degrees when streaming video and when i full screen it gets choppy which has never been an issue before.
Im running ubuntu 10.04 - 64 bit, core duo, 60 gb hdd and 4 gb ram. Its an HP pav dv2000, so right away we have heat problems in general beause of HP's shitty design. But as I've said the heat has been manageable up until now.
-I recently opened her up to clean dust off the mother board. Is there anything i could have done that could have ****** things up?
-Anyone know of any changes in the updates that could be the cause? I just installed a bunch of updates in last two days, anyone else notice any performance problems from it?
-Is there a way for me to configure the system to better handle the cpu. I have 4 gb of ram that i don't think its taking advantage of. I know that for windows there's different cpu modes like performance mode, etc that changes how the cpu handles things. Is there an equivalent way for Ubuntu?
-Are there any modifcations i can make to the system phyiscally, like adding silver compound and copper around the cpu to help it cool?
I've done a new 10.04 installation and downloaded CCSM but I can't find the option to turn the rotating cube (all options present and correct) into a rotating sphere.Have I just forgotten to download some additional plugins or similar?
I am using ubuntu karmic kola 9.10. The problem I have been having lately is of overheating of my intel core2duo proc, where the temp reaches around 80-90 degrees and the cpu shuts down after a while and the message from the bios is of thermal trip. Ideally my cpus temp is around 55 deg,the moment when the temp starts to climb and when I run a top command, I see arpwatch taking 100 % of cpu. After googling I came across this.
Code: [URL]. How can a process which is taking 100 % cpu cause a system to over heat and shutdown in few mins? I have had seen instances where processes taking a lot of cpu but not something like this.
In 9.10 I had compiz turned on, and had enabled the widget layer so I could hide the top & bottom panels (pressing F9 displays the widget layer).However I don't see an option to turn on the widget layer in the Compiz settings in 10.01?
