Ubuntu :: Making Cursor Themes Work In Compiz?

Aug 20, 2010

CC is now complete (didn't have access to the internet for 3 days so I couldn't upload it) but its working fine. Tested it out with an ISO and it works perfect. Rename to .deb and install it. Even though it says 11.04 - it works on any system with a problematic version of compiz. It is also harmless on a system without compiz although it does depend on it. cc-11.04.deb.zip

Ubuntu :: Oxygen Cursor Themes Incomplete?

Jul 3, 2010

I downloaded the oxygen cursors and oxygen cursors extras form the official ubuntu repos using synaptic. I am running gnome in ubuntu lucid with compiz and emerald. I installed them system wide by running

Code: sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme This means that they are displayed eveywhere. However, there appear to some bits missing from the cursor set. Specifically, the window resize icons and the drag and drop (move) icon. All other icons are displayed correctly. For the missing icons, it seems to fall back to the default ugly black x cursors. Has anybody else seen this, or have I installed these cursors incorrectly? Note I want to do this system wide so I have the same cursor even in my sudoed apps.

Ubuntu :: Making Custom Sound Themes In 9.10?

Feb 1, 2010

Here's the scenario: Changing themes in ubuntu used to be a pretty straight forward process that almost anyone could do with basic tools. basically you downloaded the sound you wanted and went to system/preferences/sound and changed the event you wanted to change to the new sound. Ubuntu 9.10 comes along and throws a major wrench in the works. Sure sound preferences is still there, but there's no way to select a specific sound event to change. in fact the only thing you can do is select a sound theme or choose an event sound. there is no way to change the selected theme. The only way i've come across to change a theme is manually. I'll use the starcraft theme available on [URL]. First off download the file and save it on your desktop. Next it needs to be extracted to a specific location. For systemwide use "/usr/share/sounds" as root and for local user only use "/home/username/.local/share/sounds" username being your home folder. I'm not going to go into specifics on how to extract files where there's plenty of info readily available on how to do that. Once you've extracted the sound theme you can go to system/preferences/sound and click on the dropdown menu and select starcraft and that will change the system sounds. now say for instance that you want to make your own custom sound theme. if you look in the starcraft folder you'll see a sound folder and an index.theme file. the sound folder contains all the sounds for the theme and the index.theme references those files. use gedit to open index.theme

you'll see:

[Sound Theme]


That's essentially where i'm at. my question is for the other events that i can't figure out. is there a way to list events that can be associated with sounds things like minimize maximize ect.

Fedora :: Make Compiz Fusion Not To Mess With Cursor Theme?

Jun 12, 2010

I have official Compiz Fusion running on my Fedora 13 64-bit. I also installed some custom cursor themes and I'm seeing some strange behaviour. When mouse is on my Desktop the custom cursor theme is replaced by the default one. When I launch Firefox, for example, and move cursor inside Firefox window, then my custom cursor is being shown. Also, if I go to resize some window the custom "resize cursor" is being shown, or if system is processing something then custom hourglass cursor is shown again.

Basically while on Desktop or Gnome panels the custom cursor is being replaced by the default Fedora cursor.
This only happens when I choose Compiz as my window manager. With metacity my custom cursor theme is behaving properly. Is it possible to make Compiz Fusion not to mess with my cursor theme? Or maybe it is a Compiz bug?

Ok, this indeed is a bug, but I'm not sure if it's a Gnome or Compiz bug. Here is a fix (a bad one for now) which might save someone time. The credit for this does not belong to me, I got it form this link. So, here it goes:

1. Install gconf-editor by running "yum -y install gconf-editor"
2. Change your windows manager to metacity temporarily
3. Change your cursor theme to the desired custom one
4. Run gconf-editor and go to "desktop->gnome->peripherals->mouse" and remember the value of "cursor theme" option this gconf-editor branch.
5. Create directory with name "default" in "/home/yourUserName/.icons/" directory.
6. Inside newly created "default" directory create file with name "index.theme" with the following content:

[Icon Theme]
Name = <anything you want>
Comment = <anything you want>
Example = <anything you want>

7. After saving the file re-enable Compiz as your window manager and logout/login to your account. The problem with this fix is that you will have to modify "index.theme" file every time you will want to change your icon theme, but it works nevertheless.

Fedora :: Compiz Mouse Cursor Bug Made Worse With Recent Updates?

Feb 7, 2011

Compiz seems to have had a bug where, upon using Compiz as the window manager, the mouse cursor would refuse to properly change after selecting a new theme. The workaround (altering the index.theme in/usr/share/icons/default) used to be a way around the issue... that is, until the latest Nautilus updates. Now even that won't let the cursor change, and I'm stuck with the issue of a Bluecurve cursor inside applications, but the default dmz-aa cursor on the desktop. Has anyone else found a way around this bug?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Doesn't Work - How To Make It Work

Jul 29, 2010

I'm having trouble getting compiz to work on my Laptop. It worked for a while and then I turned on Shift Switcher and a message popped up saying..."The new value for the button binding for the action Terminate in plugin Shift Switcher conflicts with the action Zoom Window of the Scale Addons plugin. Do you wish to disable Zoom Window in the Scale Addons plugin?" I was given the option of Set Terminate anyway, Don't set Terminate, and Disable Zoom Window. I clicked Don't set Terminate and ever since the only thing that works in compiz are the bindings in the general options. I've used synaptic to completely remove and then reinstall compiz but the problem persist. Something else weird, all of the changes I made are still there, even after complete removal, but they don't work?

Ubuntu :: Chane ONLY Icon Themes, Not Panel Themes?

Aug 6, 2010

I would like to install a new icon theme without effecting my currently selected panel theme, as i think the Ambience panel theme looks really nice and unified but im not too keen on the Ubuntu-Mono icons.Is this easily possible, without going into my icon folders and replacing all the instances of one style for another?Are there any applications for gnome icon theming like OS X's Candybar?Im sure others must desire to change only the icons and perhaps it is really easy and this is why i couldnt dig anythin up on google, that or im a useless googler.

Ubuntu :: Making FakeRaid Work On 9.10?

Jul 19, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 (64 bit) as a dual-boot setup (along with Win 7) on my desktop. I can't emphasize how much faster Ubuntu loads when compared with Windows. There is only one problem though, I cannot figure out how to use my existing FakeRaid array (two 2TB hdds setup as RAID 1 - mirroring) to work with Ubuntu. I am NOT trying to install Ubuntu onto a raid array (I have Win 7 mounted on a separate boot drive , 4 hdds altogether, two for each OS and two for the RAID array). The raid array works fine in Windows and it's an Intel Raid Controller. How can I do the same for Ubuntu without losing any data? Is this possible?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Compiz To Work, Running 945 GMA?

Apr 21, 2010

Running a Eee 1005HA netbook that has an Intel 945 GMA. Yes, I am in Lucid. First, I tried turning on the desktop effects. I did this the way Ubuntu intends, by going through Appearance Preferences, going to the Visual Effects tab, and selecting the Normal option. My screen went black, the option is ticked, but there are obviously no effects in place.

So I go to a terminal, type in "compiz", and I get this:

$ compiz
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!
compiz (core) - Warn: Exceeded max texture size

Launching fallback window manager Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message with a timestamp of 0 for 0x3c06e29 (Джон M) Window manager warning: meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0 timestamp; the pager needs to be fixed. Window manager warning: Received a _NET_WM_MOVERESIZE message for 0x1000005 (Atheist Co); these messages lack timestamps and therefore suck. From what I understand, I have the VESA drivers going by default. I've heard that changing that to "intel" in xorg.conf can fix this issue. This netbook is more than capable of handling compiz, especially with the RAM upgrade.

Turns out I've been out of the loop too long and xorg.conf doesn't exist anymore ever since 9.04 (or 10?). So now I don't even know how to tell xorg to use the intel graphics. I've ran glxgears and it runs at about 1415 FPS in 5 seconds. glxinfo | grep rendering says direct rendering is on.

EDIT: Well, turns out it's a dual monitor problem. I'm not connected to the other monitor and compiz is working quiet well for the netbook... kind of wish it would work with two monitors though

Ubuntu :: Compiz Won't Work On Dell?

Apr 18, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a flash drive along with Compiz for the eye catching effects. Everything works fine on my home IBM and (a rather newer) Dell. When I try to boot from the usb at school it works fine on our Acer computers, but on the Dells we have I get an error message after the Ubuntu splash screen. However, after the error message Ubuntu loads up, but Compiz doesn't work (A few examples are I can't do ctrl + alt + click for the cube, windows special effects like burn don't work, or anything else Compiz related).

Is this simply because of the Dell's hardware (like it doesn't have a strong enough graphics card?) or is it something I could change to make it work? (Ubuntu version, boot order, or something like that?) I know I am lacking a lot of details as to what type of Dell it is and the exact error message, but I will supply these in a day if needed.
