My compiz animations (magic lamp, airplane, ...) aren't working.I have an Intel GMA 4500M onboard but that shouldn't be the problem (I can enable effects from System > Preferences > Appearance).I'm using ubuntu 10.04.
I've recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop, and I installed Compiz from the software center. I went to the animations section and set different animations, but they don't take effect. I've tried disabling them and re-enabling, I've tried restarting, but nothing is working. What can I do to fix this?
actually installed it for the second time of my life (gave it a try more) just yesterday.It works brilliant.The only problem I have is with the animations in Compiz. I got the CompizConfig Setting Manager and I'm operating from there.It wont work.I have installed my graphics driver, and the other effects work properly
I currently have my open/close animation set to Glide in Compiz. However, aside from normal windows like Chrome and Nautilus, the glide effect is applied to Avants animations.I would like the Avant animations to fade in and not use the glide effect.I have looked at the rules and have done a little tinkering, but I haven't found the rule that would make this work.
So I JUST got back to Ubuntu and got my installation all up and running, but Compiz has apparently changed a bit as my desktop cube is not what it used to be. On 9.XX, 8.XX, and 7.XX; I clearly remember being able to make the Windows on each cube face appear to be stacked, however I cannot find this setting ANYWHERE in the new compiz menu.
I don't remember changing any settings but i've noticed lately things like ctrl+P and ctrl+C and alt+tab just don't work, at all.... it's rather annoying actually... is there any way to re-enable hotkeys?
I upgraded to 11.04 and my mouses just stopped working. I have to use the keyboard for everything. My internet isn't working either Linksys WUSB600N v2 like it was before. I have tried 2 mouses and none of them work. They work on my laptop though.
I tried many different ways to get a screen shot (gnome's tool, gimp, compiz plugin, xwd, import) and in all of them the screenshot was filled with jagged colored bars. I tried both with and without compiz and the same thing happened. I'm using gnome with fedora 11.
i created a directory in my webserver as well as a group "webdevs" which I want to give write permissions to, and include my user so that i can edit.i used [addgroup webdevs] then [adduser MYUSER webdevs].then [sudo chown root:webdevs MYDIR]then [sudo chmod 774 MYDIR]when I try to cd to MYDIR under MYUSER, I get permission denied.
I had the "set-cap" exception problem, so when the fix was released, I updated. Since then, the ubuntuone-preferences dialog will not start or work. I tried the me bar, the system menu, and the CLI.Now, I bought some music the first day the store opened and it downloaded fine. Then yesterday I bought another album and the store hangs on "downloading the files." Six hours later, it still won't move.
It gets weirder. The music store says its trying to download a couple of tracks from the first album (even though they are already downloaded), the second album shows up as downloaded under the Web UI, but doesn't show up at all on my desktop .ubuntuone folder.I've tried the IRC a couple of times, with no response. (In fairness, it may have been bad timing, I'm in New York) I don't mind trying to sort this out myself, but I'd just like some more hints. I've looked at the syncd log and found the exception, but I don't know how else to restart the syncd. At the same time, my files *are* synching, and *one* of my address books is synching (my gmail account contacts aren't). I know this is alot at once, but I'm afraid of dividing the problem and missing something.
I have a Dell 1525 and I just installed Ubuntu on it. The Multimedia keys (previous, stop, play/pause, next) and volume control keys (mute, increase, decrease) buttons aren't working at all. Is there anyway I can get them to work?
How to add the extra animations like burn,glide and a whole lot of them. I recently installed lucid and installed compiz but some of very cool effect are missing and not listed under animation and also the wallpaper option is missing under the utility which i get to know by this forum in ubuntu 9.10. Any ideas i miss cool animations of compiz and want them back.I reinstalled compiz and compiz settings manager, but no success.
Recently something got updated and for a short while, before I restarted, the changing workspaces animation changed to something I liked better than the usual arrows boxes, but after the restart it changed back. The thing I liked was that when I use ctrl + alt to change to a different workspace, the animation shows what programs and windows are open at a particular workspace. This happened twice already and always after an update and before the necessary restart. I looked for an option to modify that but didn't find anything so far. I am using ubuntu 10.04. How can I change these options to my liking?
Yesterday, I installed a new theme for my laptop (Ubuntu 11.04(32-bit)) and soon after, I noticed that the animations I set up were not showing up anymore. Before the installation, everything worked fine. The theme is called MacBuntu 11.04. (Not the original one)
For some reason, I can enable window minimize animations, and dodge and roll up, but no matter what I set for open and close animations in ccsm, they won't work. The window just pops up without an animation.
Is there any Linux tool that will take a SWF file and output some kind of video format? Note that I don't want a tool which will re-encode an embedded FLV or MP4, I want to take a standard Flash movie and render it as a video.I found a reference to dump-gnash in the GNU Manual, but having installed the gnash package on Fedora I don't have that command.
I just built my linux box and i installed compiz and ccsm. When i change settings in ccsm nothing happens including after i reboot. Once in a while after i boot gnome do and yakuake don't start and the screen is frozen except for pointer.
I had Compiz, desktop cube and what not, working fine on my computer. Then I had to reinstall ubuntu and know it wont work. I installed compiz and the compiz setting thing is in my preferences, but when i try to edit something it does not effect anything.
I have an issue running compiz on Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Dell Studio 1458 with an Intel Graphics Card. I ran compiz-check and it keeps saying that "Software rasterizer in use". It is running under VMWare on Windows 7.I installed MacBuntu which installed compiz by itself.
I hope I'm posting in the right place. I'm relatively new to ubuntu. here goes:Compiz is not working. I have compiz installed, together with the CompizConfig settings manager, and the simple ccsm. When I change the settings in either of those things (or in System->Administration->Appearance->visual effects), no changes actually occur. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling compiz, and I tried a host of other things I could find advised for my situation. I'm at my wits end about this. When I type 'compiz' into the terminal, the screen, and all the windows, flash like crazy for a few seconds, and then the terminal returns:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0 compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Launching fallback window manager and just hangs there indefinitely.
I can't get any features of compiz desktop effects working on a fresh install of Karmic Koala. I've uninstalled and reinstalled with sudo apt-get remove compiz and uninstalled advanced desktop settings through the software center. I am completely up to date.
I have been using some of the compiz effects now for just over a week with no problems. but yesterday they stopped working for what seems to be no reason. I have the recommended nVidia driver installed, here is my graphics card from lspci:
I'm using edgers ppa and its been really nice until now, this morning I updated as usual and to my surprise after restart compiz is not working anymore.compiz-check does not print anything wrong with my system.
I've heard that Compiz is not working in Maverick. Is this true? Has it impacted computers with decent graphics cards much, or is it no big deal? I'm kinda confused, because of the Ubiquity thing. Is that replacing compiz?
I've been running an emerald theme in compiz for few months now and everything was running fine when a couple days ago VLC started acting weird and playing little static clicks every few seconds. Then the next time I booted up after an initial second of flashing my full desktop the screen blanked off a section on the left and bottom of my screen. When I logged in docky told me it was having trouble with the compositing, but when I scrolled over the spot where my docks are they were there. My arrow can be seen in the black areas as can the start panel when I scroll over it, but aside from that it is black and when I open I window the blackness covers it in that part. None of my compiz effects seem to be working.
I am running a pretty basic motherboard and I know basically nothing about this kind of thing but I looked up the built in integrated video card online : ATI Radeon - HD3000 Graphics, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512 MB. I have an ATI driver installed but when I look at my drivers it says it is installed but not currently in use. When I look at my visual effects page it is on none, so I tried changing it to normal and it says the effects can't be enabled. I am running a dual boot with windows and when I go into windows there doesn't seem to be any problems. I am running a Biostar A760G M2+, an AMD AthlonII x4 and running Ubuntu 10.04.
I've just upgraded to 11.04 and I can't get Super Key working in Compiz, which should be binded to Left Win. It shows up as Multi_key when I enter a key combination. However, if I bind Caps Lock to Super Key it works when entering a key combination. I'm also using a Logitech MK520 keyboard.
Still new to Ubuntu, and I've installed it on my laptop tonight (Alienware M11x, Ubuntu 11.04). I've got it pretty much how I want it, but I'm stuck with a CCSM/Compiz question.I have Compiz installed, along with the extra plugins (burn, etc).However, when I try to enable any effects, I get nothing as a result.I've rebooted, enabled both Gnome and KDE compatiblities, etc- nothing will work.I'm still learning the ins-and-outs of the terminal/command line system.
