I accidentally deleted my compiz fusion Icon from my top panel and now I can't seem to get it back. Before 10.04 I could just run Applications/System tools/ Compiz fusion icon and it would appear in my panel. This doesn't work any more! when I run "fusion-icon --no-start" in terminal I get
* Detected Session: unknown

I am having problem with compiz-fusion icon in fedora 14... I have installed compiz, but when I click the compiz-icon to start it.... the system logs off and again asks password... Same thing I have done in my HP laptop, but in it, its working.. The problem comes in my pc only... I also want some help for knowing, how to add compiz-icon in the startup of the kde session...in "FEDORA 14", so that when I login using kde, the compiz-fusion automatically starts with this process... Somebody please give me a solution...Frnds I am having problem with the nvidia driver for fedora 14.. Whenever I start compiz.... The screen blacks and logs off the session
I updated system few days back. and Ka-boom! Suddenly my all desktop effects gone. My theme effects of Mac from the theme Macubuntu 10.10 were gone too. I removed Macubuntu and tried to go into visual effects tab in Appearance Preferences, but it says "Mutter is running, Can't switch to other effects." Now, may this mutter is coming in natty narwhal & new, but seriously it's 2D effects aren't smooth enough.. Also I just can't use Alt+Tab which I'm habitual of.
My question is: How to disable this mutter and re-enable my Compiz-Fusion? I tried to kill mutter process from the daemons and start a compiz.. It didn't work.. Instead, I had to reboot my machine everytime I did that. When I remove mutter from sudo apt-get remove mutter.My desktop stays blank after a reboot and I can't access anything.. Thanks to EasyStroke that I'd given stokes to open a new terminal.
I have updated to FC11 a few months back and after I got my desktop effects going I notice that every time I go to my kde application launcher it takes me back to space 1. I could be in space 6 but as soon as I go to the application launcher to open a new application it takes me back to space 1 and I have to manually move the application to desktop 6. This only happens when compiz fusion is enable...
when I boot my pc with fedora 10, it displays the white cube, although i can rotate it but it does not seem to work i cant see any desktops. How can I switch back to the normal desktop view or disable compiz fusion ?
At this point, everything installed successfully, and nvidia driver was working perfectly.
I verified this: desktop effects worked OOB.
5. compiz --replace &
6. emerald --replace &
At this point, compiz apparently started. Emerald worked perfectly: all of the window decorations worked OOB. I went and ran ccsm, and turned on quite a few settings. It didn't enable ANYTHING. When I reran ccsm, all of the settings were back to default, and enabling any new ones had no effect on window behavior. Strange. I looked on the web and found:[url]
The ubuntu page said that I should not "Enable integration into the desktop environment" if gconf was selected. BUT THE FLAT FILE CONFIGURATION WAS SELECTED BY DEFAULT. Then I went back to the site and it said flat file configuration was recommended!
Maybe I shouldn't have enabled desktop effects first (NOTE THAT I LATER DISABLED IT and things still did not work)?
I have been working on this copiz fusion thing and I was following the deal at medibuntu and got to where you run "compiz --replace" and I get this warning...

I was trying to install and run Compiz fusion with fedora 12. I downloaded all the packages etc using both the gui and terminal according to some guides. When I click the desktop effects button, it says 3d is not enabled, however the guide I followed said to enter glxgears (or something to that effect) and if it came up with 3d gears then 3d was enabled...I am very confused. There was an application I ran after downloading/installing some packages that caused the screen to go white and I had to reboot. I read in another forum this may have something to do with my drivers...gotta check my graphics card specs, will post when I find them.
I made a fresh install of Fedora 13, installed the video card driver for my video card. How do I get compiz fusion to work and what do I need to install? when I enable desktop effects the system panels disappear. Also I'm looking to install that effects editor that has all the different effects menus.
Okay I think I got the menu loader and Compiz working.. for those who browse to this thread.. the answer is. yum install compiz-fusion fusion-icon the desktop cube was a little tricky to get working.
However if I enable desktop effects fromt he preferences menu the system panels still disappear.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 in VBOX on a Windows 7 host. I have a Nvidia Geforce 9600 gt graphics card. I would really like to get Compiz Fusion desktop effects working on it. Is this possible? I have read some threads where people have ultimately found out that the VBox guest addition drivers are not compatible. How can I determine if mine is going to work?
Not quite sure what could be wrong here. The settings are enabled, but none of the compiz functions are working. The were working on Friday. I did some searching but I'm not even sure what the problem is, or how to diagnose it. I'm running 10.10, now.. any help is appreciated. Even if you just tell me what I need to be searching for to find a solution.
Compiz Fusion set to load on boot; it doesn't. Settings checked as start on boot, it just doesn't and has to be loaded manually from desktop 2.) Desktop Drapes (wallpaper changer) also set to load on boot; also doesn't do so, even though checked to do so, and also must be loaded manually from desktop. 3.) Something is hogging CPU cycles something awful; if I have more than a few tabs in Firefox open, it takes forever to scroll or reload, and the entire system just bogs almost to the point of unusability. This same behavior exists offline when using any graphic capability (Shotwell or even just Nautilus file manager, if viewing graphics as thumbnails.
I realize this is kind of all over the place and all-inclusive, but although my experience USING Ubuntu goes on several years, it's been generally so trouble-free that I've not had to dig around under the hood much, and I'm kind of at a loss as to where to begin troubleshooting this mess. Would it be easier to just back-up and nuke/reinstall the OS?
i am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with compiz fusion, when the computer loads, the compiz doesn't load with the effects automatically, to make them appear i should right click on the Compiz Fusion icon and then choose relaod window manager can i make this work automatically when the computer is load?
I just did a clean installation of Fedora 12 on my Intel Core2 Duo system. I installed packages to use compiz fusion. When I select the Compiz Fusion Icon option from the System Tools menu, my screen goes white, and I have to SSH into the system and reboot it

I hate this compiz fusion crap on knoppix 6.. I know you can turn it off using 'knoppix no3d' on the boot prompt using a live disk. But how do you save that cheatcode permanently for a hd-installed knoppix sys?
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 in Classic Gnome mode, and whenever I try to get the cube effect to work on it, the top part of all windows (The part that you grab on to move the windows and close them) disappears. Why would this happen? Here are my specs:AMD Phenom II X2 5554 GB of DDR2 RamRadeon HD 5750!
