Ubuntu :: Window Transperancy - CompizConfig Settings

Feb 8, 2010

I am running 9.10. If I have multiple windows open, and my cursor is moved off the main window (but the focus is unchanged - i.e. I did not click off the main window), the main window will become transparent. At first I thought this was a cool effect, now it just gets on my nerves. I have looked through CompizConfig Settings, I can not find the relevant effect to turn off.

Ubuntu :: Wallpaper Option Not In CompizConfig Settings?

Mar 2, 2011

Brand new to ubuntu and I'm trying to get different wallpapers on different work stations. I've read several tutorials and they all say to go to my CompizConfig Settings and go to the Utilities section, under which you will find Wallpaper. I went there and can not find it. I can't right click on my desktop either for some reason. Ran a quick search and I couldn't find anything in the forums.

EDIT: Solved! Had to download compizconfig-plugin-extras

Ubuntu :: Screenlets And CompizConfig Settings Manager Will Not Start?

Apr 10, 2011

When I try to run Screenlets from Applications > Accessories > Screenlets, it says "Starting Screenlets" for a few seconds, and then nothing happens. 'screenlets-manager' from the terminal produces the following

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/screenlets-manager.py", line 28, in <module>
import screenlets
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/screenlets/__init__.py", line 36, in <module>
import rsvg
ImportError: No module named rsvg

I have checked to make sure python-rsvg is installed. Upon looking for a solution, I read somewhere that it might have something to do with Compiz. I installed the Compiz settings manager, but when I run it from System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager, it does the exact same thing Screenlets does ("Starting CompizConfig Settings Manager", then nothing).ccsm from the terminal produces the following

OpenSUSE :: CompizConfig Settings Manager Won't Save Anything

Nov 27, 2010

Whenever I tick boxes it doesn't save anything after closing. When I clicked on Advanced Search it froze (twice) after showing a progress bar. I got this error when clicking on preferences:

jerome@linux-yxnq:/dev> ccsm
Backend : ini
Integration : true
Profile : default


By default nothing is ticked but I think there are some effects already enabled on my system.

Ubuntu :: Software Center And CompizConfig Settings Manager Not Opening

May 26, 2011

Trying to start software center:


Also, in 11.04 there's a "feature" where if I drag the title bar of a window against the top of the screen, it expands sideways. How do I disable that? I'm guessing I do it in CCSM.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Stopped Working, CompizConfig Settings Manager No Longer Accessible?

May 18, 2010

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite, Intel graphics card, a few days ago, and had no trouble accessing the CompizConfig Settings Manager. I changed a number of settings, and everything seemed to be working just fine. But two days ago, I noticed that the compiz effects (rotating desktop cube, minimize effect etc.) were gone; and when I now try to access the Settings Manager, I see a "Starting CompizConfig..." appear in the panel and linger for about five seconds; then it's gone. No settings manager, no error message.

The day that happened, I had (to the best of my memory) not installed any updates. I had, however, removed a bunch of applications through the Software Center. I had also launched Ubuntu Tweak and changed a couple of settings. The only option it showed, and shows, under 'Compiz Settings' was then (and still is): "Prerequisite Conditions" : "Install Advanced Desktop Effects Settings Manager". The box was checked. I have since unchecked and re-checked it, thereby uninstalling and re-installing the settings manager. But that hasn't changed anything.

Ubuntu :: Dead After Install The CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) Application From The Software Center

Jun 10, 2011

Just got my 11.04 and tried to use some settings in Compiz. I`ve made these steps: Install the CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) application from the Software Center. If you need assistance with installing the application, consult the software installation help, or review the Ubuntu Software Center Manual.

After you have installed the program, click the power icon at the very right of the panel and select System Settings. In the Personal section, click CompizConfig Settings Manager. In the Desktop section of the CompizConfig Settings Manager, click Ubuntu Unity Plugin, and select the Experimental tab.

I`ve clicked on the left side there was something like "enable plugin" or sort of. And my launcher, and the pane on the top dissapeared! I got nothing. Just the screen. Nothing is workin. What the f>..?

Ubuntu :: Everytime Adjust A Setting In The CompizConfig Settings Manager - The Top Unity Bar Wigs Out And Disappears

Jun 12, 2011

I like everyone else posing in this forum am trying to reconcile with 11.04. Everytime I adjust a setting in the CompizConfig Settings Manager, the top unity bar wigs out and disappears, it is still clickable but its invisible. Is there any simple fix to this? I don't think it's my hardware because other people are getting this too. I really don't like restarting/logging off my computer everytime I make a compiz change.

Ubuntu :: Upgraded From 9.10 To 10.04, Window Settings Are Changed?

Ubuntu from version 9.10 to 10.04 today, and now all of the window settings (maximize, minimize, restore, close) have been moved to the left side of the border. I can't seem to remember how I did it, so can somebody please tell me how to move it back to the right side? It's not serious but I like it on the right side

Ubuntu :: Lost Window Decoration And Other Settings

Sep 1, 2011

I'm using ubuntu classic on 11.04 (that's not the foolish part). I was tidying up my main menu with the Edit Menu application, and deleted all of the hidden items in the Applications submenu 'Other', including things like Compiz, Metacity, Open Folder, Window Manager.I had believed that this would have no effect on the operation of anything; only upon what was listed in the menu, but the effects seem to have been quite severe and wide-ranging.Now, at reboot, there is no background image, cursor, or windows decorator (I have to get a terminal window open and run compiz --replace), and I cannot open locations from the places Menu (I get an error telling me that no application is registered as handling this file). There are probably other consequences I have yet to discover.

The desktop.configuration files for the 'Other' menu items are still present in Usr/Share/Applications directory.Is there a way that I can restore things to the way they worked before I deleted these Menu items? It would be an enormous help in my predicament.

Ubuntu :: New Firefox Window Forgets Toolbar Settings

Feb 10, 2010

I use Kubuntu 9.10. All packages are up-to-date. The problem: When opening a new window in firefox, the new window forgets the toolbar settings. So when I start firefox and the first window shows up, it shows my toolbar settings correctly, which is pretty minimalistic actually (no buttons, bookmark menu, google searchbar, etc.). But when I then open a new window from the original one, the new window has forgotten my toolbar settings and shows all the buttons, the searchbar, etc..

This happens irrespective from if I hit Ctrl+N, or print firefox after hitting Alt+F2 (which just opens a second window since the firefox process is already running). What can I do? I read in some other post that you should delete some settings file that might have gone corrupt, but I have done this and it did not help.

Ubuntu :: Disable Or Customize Some Of Preview Settings On Alt-tab Window

Aug 17, 2011

how to disable or customize some of the preview settings on the alt-tab window..MY Question is if its possible to disable the "Grouping" part..such as having multiple nautilus windows.primarily thunderbird is the largest annoyance.. if im writing an email on my laptop and accedentally (touchpad 'palming') off the 'compose message' window; by default and second nature, my brain tells my fingers to alt-tab back into it.

alt tab doesnt allow tabbing into the sub-groups..you CAN although use the arrow keys combined with alt-tab, and eventually find your way down into the hierarchy, and to the right email. this is much too much work compared to a simple alt-tab once, like most other situations.i did notice an option to disable touchpad while youre typing in the settings. is there a gconf entry to adjust the delay? or how many keys need to be typed before its disabled?

problem there, is that if i hit return, or esc, or delete, or pretty much anything that should just be a QUICK one button press, and back to the touch pad, results in waiting 2-3 SECONDS.

Fedora :: GNOME Window Settings - Missing In FC12?

Nov 18, 2009

noticed that Fedora 12 made some odd design decisions for default GNOME settings, and I couldn't locate the System->Preferences->Windows menu item to change them back. The design options I'm talking about:

* No icons in menus (System menu for instance has no icons, though there are icons under the Preferences and Administration sub-menus... the root System menu though has none)

* Icons on toolbars are configured so the label text appears to the right of the buttons, so this makes File Explorer in Nautilus look funny to me. I like the text appearing beneath the icons like it has always been up until now.

why the Windows configuration has been removed from Fedora 12? The control-center package provides the bins for all the preferences items except for gnome-window-settings; so is it upstream that did this? Anyway, I had to dig around in the gconf-editor to find where the window settings are kept so I could change them "manually", since the Windows tool is gone now. For anyone else who wants to know, it's under /desktop/gnome/interface in the gconf-editor (namely, keys toolbar_style, buttons_have_icons, and menus_have_icons are the ones I changed).

Ubuntu :: Options Missing From Compizconfig?

Jul 13, 2010

Title pretty much says it. As you can see from my screenshot, my effects list is far shorter than it's supposed to be, a quarter the size of what I had on my hardy desktop. The main effects that are driving me insane not having are 3D windows, e.g. windows hover above the desktop cube in order of use, and water sloshing around in the cube as I rotate it. Are these now options under an effect? I couldn't find them anywhere. Running 32 bit lucid on a laptop with a good graphics card.

Ubuntu :: CompizConfig Maximumize In Natty?

Aug 7, 2011

I started using Natty as soon as it came out. There were some minor things that did not work but I supposed they would be fixed in updates soon enough, and most were. However, there is one issue that still is not fixed. In compiz, there is a window management 'app' called Maximumize, which allows you to maximize windows in certain directions using shortkeys.

Since I started using Natty, this app doesn't work properly anymore. It will no longer maximize to the left, right or up, but the strange thing is down does work (sometimes). I've tried reinstalling compiz, disabling the app and enabling again, resetting the shortkeys, but still only down works, and the others don't. This is quite annoying since I like to use this feature alot. Resizing windows by hand is quite tedious. Has anyone else had this problem? I could not find anything about it so far.

Ubuntu :: CompizConfig Full Screen Video Desktop Switch

Oct 10, 2010

I saw a compizconfig video on ....., I forgot what it was, but I saw that they were running a video full screen and switched desktops or work areas and when they went back the video was still full screen.

Right now if I do a video full screen and switch to another desktop and come back to the video one, it is back to the window size before full screened.

How can I accomplish for my video to remain full screen even if i switch desktops?

General :: Modify The "Configure Window Behavior" Settings

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to modify the "Configure Window Behavior" settings so that a new KWrite window will have a default size and location that is not affected by anything I did to a previous KWrite window. I have found that "Force" does that; unfortunately, "Force" also locks the window in position, preventing me from moving or resizing it if I should want to. Is there any setting that forces a default window size and location but allows me to change it?

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings

Ubuntu :: Move The Window Control Buttons When The Window Is In Full Screen Mode?

May 3, 2011

How do I move the Window control buttons when the window is in full screen mode? I.e.: I know how to go into gconf-editor:

gconf-editor --> apps --> metacity --> general --> button layout = ":minimize,maximize,close"
(I've intentionally disabled the menu...)

What I want is my window controls to be on the right side of the window when the window is in full screen mode.

Also I've had an issue with the Unity dockbar glitching out. I can still click on the buttons (i.e. the logout button) but it displays like a nintendo game inserted crooked. Is there a way to 'restart' unity without log out/ log in?

Any one else experienced any glitches with unity auto hiding/showing?
