Ubuntu :: Enable Compiz In 11,04?

I just upgraded ubuntu, and now I can't find visual effects. For some reason it's gone. So how do I enable compiz? I don't use unity, I use the normal classic gnome.

Ubuntu :: How To Enable Compiz Snow In 10.04
I am trying to enable Compiz Snow in Ubuntu 10.04. Every other desktop effect I have tried works fine but when I check the box for snow it unchecks itself after a couple of seconds. I have the 'Animations Add-On' button checked... no snow. I also have all these installed:
compiz compiz-plugins compiz-gnome compiz-core emerald compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra fusion-icon compizconfig-settings-manager

Ubuntu :: Cannot Enable Compiz Effects After Using A Projector
A friend whom I turned on to Ubuntu with 9.10 recently connected a projector to watch a movie off her laptop. When it was connected, the laptop screen changed and it was clear that desktop effects through compiz were disabled. Thing is, since disconnecting the projector, I cannot get the effects back.If I go into Preferences - Appearance and click to enable Normal or Extra Visual Effects, the same thing happens. I.e. I get a popup saying Searching for hardware driver...and after about 20 seconds, the screen flashes a bit, and says

Desktop effects could not be enabled. Not sure why it's searching for a hardware driver. The computer doesn't require any 3rd party hardware drivers to be enabled - it doesn't have an nVidia card or anything like that.If it makes a difference, she yanked the VGA cord out without setting the display mode back to just her laptop with the FN and F key combo.I've tried:

-Reinstalling compiz

-Tinkering with options under Preferences - Display

-Ensuring that nothing is available under Preferences - Hardware Drivers

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Re-enable Unity Plug-in In Compiz
I just upgraded and hated the left side vertical menu, it's just not my thing.I decided (regrettably) to deselect the Unity plug-in from with the Compiz Settings UI thinking it might get rid of it. It but, but unfortunately it rendered the desktop completely unusable and alll I have now is literally a desktop with no menu's or toolbars of any kind.Although I can login using the 'Classic' option I really think I should fix what I have broken (before reverting to 10.10).Is there any way to re-enable the Unity plugin via command line?I tried entering ccsm via terminal but nothing happens. I also tried entering configcompiz-settings-manager but again, a dead end.

Ubuntu :: Jaunty64: GLX On G31 Alongside NVIDIA - Can't Enable Compiz
I've been using this system for over a year with the built-in Intel G31 chipset graphics. Then I decided to get an nVIDIA card to run Folding@home, among other things. I found that I had to run the graphics off the nVIDIA card to get Folding to run, but that caused jerkiness. So then I discovered these instructions (which are one of several reasons I don't want to upgrade from Jaunty at this time.) I'm now using my Intel card for the display, and my nVIDIA card for Folding. The only problem with this setup is that I can't enable Compiz, or do other graphically-intensive stuff like certain games. For now I'm using Metacity. Running glxinfo provides me with the following nice message:

Ubuntu :: Enable Kde Compatibility In Compiz For Dockbarx Previews?

NOTE! To use previews you need to activate KDE Compability in compiz settings manager and under KDE Compability check "Support Plasma Thumbnails". (Alternatively you can use kwin as window manager instead of compiz. That will give you previews for minimized windows as well.)

How is this done? I have CompizConfig Settings Manager and I can't find kde anywhere.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (gnome)

General :: Enable Compiz Without Restart
I've recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop. I installed a bunch of compiz software from the software center. I used ..... to figure everything out. However, somethings didn't work; such as the cube wouldn't change to the sphere, and the windows animations wouldn't work. When I restarted my computer, the cube changed to what I had set. The windows animations, however, didn't. How can I get all of these effects to work, and to take effect without restarting the computer?

Ubuntu :: Disable Mutter To Enable Back Compiz Fusion?
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.

So, it looks like my hardware support all what it needs for Compiz. What else is going wrong here?

Debian :: Any Way To Enable Compiz Without Replacing Metacity?
I re-installed Debian recently and I have a question about compiz. Is there any way to enable Compiz without replacing Metacity? I say this because using compiz --replace replaces all of my shortcuts and reduces my workspaces to two, it would even let me add more.
