Ubuntu :: Compiz Wallpaper Plugin Broken With 10.10

Oct 13, 2010

After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10, I've noticed (as have others) that the Compiz plugin for multiple wallpapers on different desktops is broken. If I wish to move to a new screen with the Expo feature, the graphics behave oddly (i.e. things become blurry or windows look terrible). I found a work-around on Launchpad, but this is only a temporary fix to a long-term solution. Has anyone else here had this problem or figured out a way to solve it?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Compiz Freaked Out - Desktop Did Not Show The Wallpaper Correctly

May 28, 2010

I saw my computer's desktop did not show the wallpaper correctly and I could actually see INTO my other virtual desktops....its as is compiz decided it did not want to work correctly: You can see into my other virtual desktops, as you can see I have an application open in the desktop to the left of the current one.

I can still maximize windows and it takes up the whole screen as it should, but animations and anything on the left side (dead space side) seem to get stuck...I have to rotate my cube and rotate back before everything works correctly. I know I did get a few new updates around the time this started happening, so hopefully someone out there has experienced something similar.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Lirc Plugin Broken In 10.04?

May 1, 2010

The only thing I have found so far which does not work for me after upgrading to 10.04 is the ability to change the master volume via LIRC and the pulseaudio lirc plugin.LIRC itself is working, I can verify it recognizes my remote control input by using irw, and all other portions of my lircrc file are executed correctly, such as my On Screen Display. However, no changes are made to the system volume.

I have already reinstalled the lirc pulseaudio plugin to no avail.Can anyone else confirm if this does/doesn't work on their own system?

Ubuntu :: Interaction Between Cairo And Compiz Window Preview Plugin?

Jun 9, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10
Kernel 2.6.32-22-generic

I'm attempting to replace gnome-panel with cairo (also called glx dock), but I'm noticing some strange interaction between cairo and compiz. I have the Window Previews compiz plugin enabled, but the cairo dock only previews the window when the window is already visible on the desktop. If the window is minimized, the plugin doesn't seem to work. Have I missed a crucial configuration option somewhere? I'll attach some screenshots to try to clarify the problem. Notice the placement of the mouse over the left-most icon on my dock in both screenshots.

Ubuntu :: Natty And Compiz Blur Plugin Doesn't Work

May 2, 2011

I did a clean install and mounted my user folders/partitions back after removing everything else from the Home drive to ensure no incompatible leftovers from Maverick.Now, I am dissapointed to see that I can't get blur on my transparent windows. This worked like a charm in Maverick and it looked brilliant but now it's often hard to tell windows apart if there are windows below the active one. So I had to turn down transparency... I have D-bus enabled, proprietary drivers installed and I have been Google-searching like crazy to find a solution. None.. Do any of you know the status of this plugin in Natty? Should it work, does it? Or not?I have Focus blur activated and working, it helps but not enough. My videocard is Radeon HD 4650 (AGP).

Slackware :: 3D Windows Compiz Plugin Isn't Working

Jan 1, 2011

I've just finished installing slack on my new computer, and after about 20 minutes of hair-pulling agony, I've gotten compiz working properly except for one plugin; the 3D windows plugin (windows hover over cube on rotate). I think it might be a corrupted ccsm- whenever I check the box next to the plugin, then try to rotate the cube, it is unchecked. Anyway, I know my graphics card (Geforce 6200 256Mb pci-e) is powerful enough to handle it since the driver installed properly and the effect worked on the knoppix live disk I used for partitioning. I'm running xfce and using emerald as the window decorator if it helps at all. It does the same thing with both animation packs.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flash Plugin Installer - Broken Package

Mar 14, 2010

So I tried to download adobe flashplayer from a site I'm not sure of, and it didn't install flashplugin-installer. My pc always bugs me about having a broken packet and i'm not able to download anything else because of it. I've tried for a long time now and visited like every site to try to get rid of it. It says "E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal."

When I try to delete it in system package manager. And it says I need to do this "This package is a transitional package that can safely be removed after you installed flashplugin-installer." I can't find where to install this and when I did think I found the link I try to type my password for terminal and it just says sorry, try again for some reason. I got ubuntu yesterday so I am new to this.

Fedora :: Effect Errors In Compiz Animation Plugin

Mar 14, 2009

Using Compiz's animation plugin, only the open and close effects work. When any entries are listed under the "Animation Selection" for Minimize, Focus, or Shade; the animations do not play; and I receive a libnotify error: "Animation settings mismatch in 'Animation Selection' list for __<Minimize or Focus or Shade>___ event."This happens even with the Animation Selection values reset and even the entire Animation configuration reset. I use the Gconf backend, but this also occurs with a file-based configuration. This has never worked for me.

Ubuntu :: Compiz 8.6 Downgrade - Software Index Broken For Update

Jul 15, 2011

I downgraded to Compiz 8.6 with the GNOME 2 desktop using these instructions: [URL]. Today, however, my system wanted to do a "system upgrade", and now I get warning messages like this:

emil@Emilubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ubuntu-desktop:
ubuntu-desktop depends on unity; however:
Package unity is not installed.
dpkg: error processing ubuntu-desktop (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

And when trying update manager:
Software index is broken
It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first

Now I'm not sure it is good advice to do sudo apt-get install in force mode, since the problem seems to be - I'm guessing - that update manager is trying to install packages with are for the unity desktop and not my classic gnome+compiz 8.6 desktop.

Fedora :: Compiz Broken After Latest Update

Sep 1, 2011

I've just installed 100+meg of updates and rebooted only to find that when I login the desktop fails to boot. Opening a root-console, I killed Compiz which dropped me back to the login screen where I logged-in again with the desktop starting successfully. From there I disabled Compiz and have no problem starting the desktop now. But that's not really a solution.Even stranger, if I now try logging in with and older kernel version and with Compiz off - if I try enabling Compix now, the desktop just freezes - it also fails to complete loading the desktop. So both the current-kernel/Compiz seem to be linked to the problem in some way!Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a solution? I miss my desktop-effects!

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Extra Plugins Broken?

Mar 16, 2010

I had a Compiz update two weeks ago, this update came from the official repository of Debian. So everyone had this update, this update did not had a positive effect. The extra plugins on both my desktop and laptop can't be enabled now. Such as Expo or the Animations. I can just use the basic stuff. There have been some partial upgrades ever since for Compiz, so I guess they are still working on it. But my question is; am I the only one?

Ubuntu :: Buttons References - Use The <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 For The Enabled Compiz Screenshot Plugin)?

Jun 5, 2011

how to use the <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 for example for the enabled Compiz Screenshot plugin)? I also notice there is configurable buttons 1 throught 20 under the various options. At first I thought the ButtonX was a mouse button. Maybe it is with some anticipation of there being eventually being a possible 20 buttons on the mouse. I know the Super key is the Key with the Windows logo on it. But I don't know what to do to get the needed Super Key / Button combination. After having enabled Compiz's Screenshot plugin by its default, I don't get an image after hitting any of the Super key and mouse button combinations. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

Ubuntu :: Plugin Error: Unable To Activate Plugin Cover Art

Jan 17, 2011

While using Rhythmbox this morning, I was greeted by a blunt and undiscriptive error message:


Plugin Error:Unable to activate plugin Cover Art.Going to the plugin page, I was supprised to find that most of the installed plugins would not load. Without any info being offered in the player, I looked on line. Many people had problems with other plugins, and most of the time it was a problem with an uninstalled python package. But I checked on this site and I found that I had all of these packages installed. (Well, the python ones at least, to check all of them would take forever.)



After finding no help there, I ran rhythmbox -d to debug:


(12:04:33) [0x934fe68] [rb_python_module_init] rb-python-module.c:406: Init of python module
(rhythmbox:4971): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: unable to load module as python runtime could not be initialized
