Ubuntu :: No Windows Borders Using Compiz

Apr 17, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 and after installing the drivers for my graphic card ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570, windows borders do not appear anymore. When I type "metacity --replace" borders come back, but I can't use compiz, also when I try to disable "Window Decoration" from the compizConfig Settings it doesn't work, it keeps always enabled. I tried this hack here [URL] but it didn't work for me (or I didn't apply it correctly, I'm new to the system).

Ubuntu :: Compiz Windows Borders Not Working On 11.04?

May 1, 2011

I have recently upgraded to 11.04 and everything works except for compiz and emerald, every time I enable compiz to be the window manager the borders either do not work or they do not appear. I switched the window manager to metacity and now the borders work but I can not get any effects at all. Also emerald never replaced the window borders either.

Ubuntu :: Window Borders Disappearing When Compiz Is Enabled

Jun 28, 2010

We've all probably had this issue at one time or another.Window borders disappearing when Compiz is enabled. I'm on 10.04 with Intel GMA 4500M graphics. I would say about 30% of the time when I boot up the computer, I have no window borders. I use the Compiz Fusion icon just for this purpose, to reload the window manager and get back the window borders.Of course, the other 70% of the time the computer boots up with normal window borders. Is there a more permanent solution someone can provide than manually reloading the window manager on an as-needed basis?

Software :: No Window Borders When Using Compiz/emerald (Fedora 11)?

Jun 22, 2009

I had installed compiz and emerald when I was using Fedora 9, upgraded to 10 (compiz and emerald still working at this stage) tho when I upgraded to 11 compiz and emerald seem to have crashed (i upgraded using preupgrade both times, maybe this might be a bit of a problem...) Since upgrading to 11, neither compiz or emerald would work. Ive tried reinstalling both compiz and emerald, and even erasing them both, restarting and then installing (both times thru yum).

This has brought back compiz and the effects (I can use AWN, desktops on a cube etc) but there is no window borders (cant move, resize etc). Ive tried different window managers (emerald, gtk and even kde4 has been installed..) and tried reloading the window mangers thru the fusion icon. Nothing seems to work, unless I stop compiz from running at startup (but then I lose all the desktop 'candy'). Searching the net has brought up a couple of options (Under CCSM):

- Check the box "Windows Decorations" and under its properties write emerald --replace (or whatever WM)

- Check the box "Place windows"

but none of these seem to work either.

Software :: No Window Borders With Compiz XFCE On Slackware 13?

Sep 6, 2009

I've been using Slackware for about five years but I've never been bothered about compiz so it's all a bit new to me. Since I installed Slackware 13 (64bit) yesterday I noticed that compiz is one of the pre-installed packages so I thought I'd give it a blast.

I should probably have done a bit more research but I read on a forum that running "compiz --replace" will replace the default window manager with compiz so I gave it a try. The problem is that now none of my windows have borders so I can't move them or do anything. The worst part about the whole affair is that I can't even figure out how to revert to whatever the old window manager was.

EDIT : Just thought I'd add that I'm using XFCE.

EDIT++ : I've managed to revert the window manager by deleting my .cache directory. XFCE obviously maintainted the apps that were running and one of them was compiz. Now just to figure out how I can get compiz working. I presume emerald is the key...

Ubuntu :: Window Borders Keep Disappearing - Open Compiz Icon To Reload Window Manager?

Apr 23, 2010

I recently upgraded the motherboard/processor on my computer (as in quadrupled the processor and octupled the ram). The new board has a built in GPU (intel) and from searching the forums, I think this is part of the problem. Every time I boot up the computer, I need to open the Compiz icon and use it to reload the window manager before I see any title bars, borders, etc. 've tried the .bashrc hack (metacity --replace), but that doesn't do anything. In fact, whenever I open the terminal, I need to have two tabs open in order to use it, and when I close it all the borders go away again (even when I haven't done anything). Also, the onboard sound card (intel) doesn't work, but that's another task (I at least have a compatible card for that).

Ubuntu :: Windows Are Unmovable And Lost Their Borders And Buttons?

Jun 14, 2010

I'm posting this for a new member who needs help, his registration hasn't gone through yet. His computer (10.04) a fresh install not 3 weeks old, has now had all his windows loose their outer borders and the 3 close, minimize, and maximize buttons. Clicking on one underneath another does not allow any other ones to focus- only the top window, Firefox, remains in focus. None of the windows are movable. I've used force quit to close windows. New windows open the same way- with no outer border, now locked to the upper left corner, and still unmovable.

Things that were open and close with force quit are still in the panel bars, and the panel bars are showing up like they are focused on. I've never seen this problem before in 10.04 or even 8.04. Has anyone else run into this, know how to fix it?

Ubuntu :: Startup Without Windows' Borders - Shadows And Title Bar?

Nov 25, 2010

I have searched around but did not find anything similar, so I make a new post. I have installed Mac4Lin icons, theme and font, and I am using Emerald (with "emerald --replace" command in the window manager of compiz) and everythin is fine.

Some few times (every 4~5 days), when I start the system, it opens up as the title, like Emerald is not starting or something. If I logoff and then logon again, it is fine. Not that is a serious problem... just annoying in case you want to demonstrate the "power of the system" in an important meeting and it shows up like that.

OpenSUSE :: Unable The Top Parts And The Borders Of Windows?

Is there a way to enable the top parts and the borders of windows in openSUSE to be partially transparent? If so, I'd be grateful if someone told me how. Like in this image, the top part where it says "Mozilla Firefox" and the border of that window are all partially transparent (yes, I know that's Windows, lol). I'm running 11.4 KDE.[URL]..

OpenSUSE :: Unable 'wobbly Windows' And Translucent Borders?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to get to the config page where I once enabled wobbly windows and translucent borders. For the life of me, I can't seem to find it. I would think it to be in the desktop settings and associated with the qt4 engine somewhere, but it continues to evade me. How did I arrive at that config page??

Ubuntu :: Can't Click On Any Windows In Compiz

May 9, 2010

Just to preface this, I do have compiz running.

I'm facing a bug where any time I click anywhere inside a window, it performs the function of ALT-clicking the window -- just dragging it around the screen. The only way I can do a standard click on the window is if I hold down the ALT key.

I think this is a compiz issue, since it is fixed by killing compiz. I've had this issue before, but I can't remember how I solved it.

Ubuntu :: Boarderless Windows With Compiz

May 8, 2011

Last night I installed compiz-config and tried to activate the desktop cube and made the mistake of clicking through the alert messages without properly reading them, and then all of a sudden my window boarders disappeared. So now I have no close, minimise or maximise buttons. no file, edit, view, etc options and I cant move any windows. I completey removed compiz and the window boarders came back, but then when I re-installed it and started it with "compiz --replace" the boarders disappear again (in a side issue, now when I log in I have to manually start compiz with "compiz --replace", if anyone could help me with making compiz start by default again that would be great).

I'm currently using Natty 64-bit and the problem only seems present on Ubuntu Classic, Unity and fail safe mode both seem fine.

I'm pretty sure the issue is in a setting stored somewhere in /home as I only did a clean install last week and have /home on a separate partition so re-installing Ubuntu seemed like a quick solution but even after that the problem is still there.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Killed Windows Title Bar

May 3, 2011

I created a 2nd login that I set up with Gnome instead of Unity. Unity has a few things that drive me nuts like no notification area among other things. I want to still be able to access Unity to try to get used to it, but will probably use gnome mainly.Anyway, I like using the compiz desktop cube effect (also something I could not do in Unity). When I activated it, all my title bars (the top bar in most all windows) vanished. I have seen this before, but the normal fixes aren't working.

This is one thing that still bugs me about Linux/Ubuntu. A couple clicks and you just hose your desktop/ computer. It is not that easy to screw up a windows machine. It isn't even as if I clicked on something wrong.Is there a something about 11.04 that causes a bigger problem with compiz?

Ubuntu :: Ordering Of Windows For Compiz Scale?

Jun 23, 2011

I have a dual monitor setup and I've used Scale for a few days now, but I'm still confused about the expected ordering of the windows within the same workspace. For example, the last focused window isn't necessarily placed at a fixed spot, e.g., top left corner. It seems that if a window on my left monitor is last focused and I invoke it on my right screen, then it'd appear on the top left corner. However, if a window on my right monitor is last focused, it gets past just the last focused window on my left monitor. The last focused window on my left monitor eventually shifts to the bottom right corner.

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Opening All Minimized Windows In Taskbar?

Dec 25, 2010

Is there is a way in compiz to open all the minimized windows in the taskbar? Since I want to use the "scale" feature in compiz for all of the windows. As what you already know is that, the "scale" feature only works for the open windows not the minimized ones. So I want a way to open all the minimized windows with a shortcut(using compiz or any thing else) and then use the scale feature again.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Follows Newly Created Windows With Compiz

I have an Intel setup with 64bit Ubuntu. I have an NVIDIA graphics card. When I used compiz, I found that my mouse would follow newly created windows. (e.g, I would bring up terminal and if I hit F1, the mouse would move to the upper right of the screen by itself. I have since turned off compiz which resolves the issue. where I can turn it off/on.

OpenSUSE :: Weird Compiz - 3D Windows Bug?

Jun 8, 2010

After having some problems with the latest Ubuntu release, I decided to give openSUSE another chance. This time I managed to get flawlessly working everything I needed, and I'm very satisfied with this distro so far.

That said, I encountered a weird glitch in Compiz, specifically with its 3D Windows plugin. It's not really a big deal, but it bugs me, so I might as well give it a shot and ask about it here. With the 3D Windows activated, this is what I get:

what causes this and how can I fix it? I'm using the latest NVIDIA propietary drivers. If you need me to post any additional info, I'll be happy to comply.

Debian :: Some Windows Are Out Of Screen Using Compiz

Apr 29, 2010

I'm using debian lenny, my video card is an ATI x1300 series, I've installed compiz from the debian's repositories. All works fine except the next: Sometimes the windows appears out of screen, but this happens with windows related to the getfile function -for example: attach a file to an email, change the directory to download a file, seek some playlist file in "atun", etc.; so these windows appears in the top border of the screen, I can only watch the buttons "cancel" and "ok". I don't want to change the resolution every time this happens, so my question is: what should I change/edit to prevent this happen?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Window Picker - Include - Exclude Windows

I use the Scale Windows (aka Window Picker) of Compiz. I'm not entirely happy about the behaviour and i'm not sure if / how i can customise it.

What i want is:that minimized windows also are represented among scaled / exposed windows for me to pick from.
that my panel and dock are still clickable when all my windows are scaled / exposed.

Is there any way i can include / exclude these windows from that effect?

General :: How Does Compiz Decide Which Windows Should Be Sticky?

Dec 14, 2010

How does Compiz automatically decide which windows should be sticky (i.e. should be visible on all workspaces)? Windows such as gnome-panel and cairo-dock always stay on the visible workspace, without requiring additional configuration. How does Compiz figure this out?
