Fedora :: Emerald And Compiz Static App Switcher Not Running At Startup

Nov 2, 2009

I have problem for emerald and compiz in KDE fedora 11. The problems are:
1. Emerald is not running at startup so I have to type emerald --replace every time I login otherwise I get no windows border.
2. The static application switcher in compiz is not running at startup so I have to go to ccsm and disable then reenable it again otherwise when I point my mouse to the edges of my screen it wont do anything.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Emerald And Compiz Window Management

Jun 20, 2010

I'm not sure about anybody else, but I have spent many hours today trying to figure out how to get Compiz as a window manager. Alas, I have tasted success. Once compiz and Emerald are both installed, simply go to Code:Configure Desktop > Default Applications > Window Management and then select from the drop down menu.Now those beautiful emerald themes will work. I have seen many other 'solutions' for KDE4 and they may have worked for some, but not for me. I hope this will help somebody who may be as frustrated as I was.

Ubuntu :: Way To Restore Only Application Switcher From Metacity When Using Compiz?

Aug 19, 2010

Is there a way to restore only the application switcher from metacity when using compiz?I generally like compiz on, but there is not an application switcher within compiz that provides the usability of the standard metacity switcher.They are fine when you have only a few windows open, but if you are running many apps (some of them with multiple windows) it becomes quite hard to identify the app you want.

Ubuntu :: Natty - Compiz Workspace Switcher Can't Switch Down From W/space #1?

Jul 16, 2011

I've just (finally) upgraded to Natty from Maverick. After the faffing around to restore my favoured AWN and Compiz combo, all's now ok, except for one annoyance to do with Compiz (0.9.4) and the workspace switcher. I can use the mousewheel to rotate workspaces up/down (actually, left/right) to go from 1->2->3->4->5->6->1.. and 6->5->4->3->2->1, but it won't rotate down / left from 1->6. It works ok if I use <Ctrl>left arrow from w/space #1.

I've checked the mappings for Button4 and Button5 in CCSM, and there's no clash. So, am I right in thinking this is probably a bug? Has anyone else had this problem and is there a fix? Is downgrading to Compiz 0.8 likely to fix it?

CentOS 5 :: (oracle 5) Error With Emerald At Startup

Mar 13, 2011

I would like to use emerald on oracle linux 5. I prefer this forum so I migrated to here! In fact, I already managed to import some themes in emerald, and to apply them, but after a reboot there was an error message (I don't remember it but I can retry to boot if you want), and my new emerald theme was not loaded, instead I had the default one, and when I launched emerald I wasn't able to import a new theme, there was no theme in the emerald window. so I tried to import one with the file manager by clicking on the "import" button, but in my home folder (/home/olivier) I had ... nothing : no file, no directory, yet there are still on the disk, I verified.

this seems an error of rights, but I don't know what to do. I must also specify that I have not already put "fusion-icon" in the list of the applications to launch at the startup, so I have to launch it after the boot (and it's what I did after the boot I spoke about above. I don't remember if I launched fusion-icon as "root" or "olivier"...

Fedora :: Compiz 0.8.6 Crashing On Startup F14?

Nov 22, 2010

The other night I ran an update, which after it was done said it required a reboot for libconsole to finish updating. I had some other things to do so I rebooted. When I came back and logged into GNOME with Compiz it took forever to load, when it did it loaded metacity instead of compiz. I tried starting it manually(with compiz, and compiz manager) but each time it starts all the window decorations come up but I can't interact with the desktop at all(I can move the mouse but thats it). The only way to make X responsive again is to go into another TTY and kill compiz. When I do that there is no debug information thats useful.

Debian :: Installing Emerald \ Can't Find Emerald Anywhere?

Apr 16, 2011

My plan is to slowly switch over to this Distro rather than use Gnome 3 or Unity, but I'm not as familiar with Debian. I've gotten everything working (including Compiz) except that I can't find Emerald anywhere? Is it possible to install Emerald in Debian Squeeze? If so, is there a PPA or repository?

Fedora :: Running A Command At Startup?

Mar 12, 2010

I'm trying to get synergy+ to work on Fedora 12 on start up. I'd like to be able to log into Fedora using my keyboard and mouse through synergy+. I've tried adding the line
Code:synergyc <localipaddress> at the end of the /etc/rc.local file but I still can't use my keyboard and mouse to log in. I've also tried adding the lineCode:su <username> -c "synergyc <localipaddress>" to /etc/rc.local but it still doesn't work. Just to clarify, I do have synergy+ working on Fedora but I need to start it after logging in on each reboot by switching my keyboard over to the other computer.

Ubuntu :: Startup Application Order - App After Compiz

Now in Lucid, it starts up before Compiz and I don't get Compiz transparency. I have to quit Tilda and load it again before I get the transparency right. Is there some way to force tilda to start after Compiz? (I have tested this on several comps. it seems to hold true)

Ubuntu Networking :: Set A Static IP Address On A Server (to Be Used With Mythtv) And Is Running Mythbuntu 10.04

Aug 12, 2010

Am attempting to set a static IP address on a server (to be used with Mythtv) and is running mythbuntu 10.04 (apologies if this is the wrong place to post this). I can set a static IP address that is in the range of 192.168.1.x on other machines on the network but when I try with the server it is not able to connect to the network. When using the DHCP rather than manually assigning the address it is assigned an address with the 10.0.0.x range. Why is it doing this I have never have this problem on other ubuntu boxes (and this one prior to a format of the OS).

The router/gateway is I did have a DHCP server on the mythbox before formatting it and I was able to assign a static 192.168 address and retain internet connectivity. But I have re-enabled the DHCP server on my router since formatting the box.

Fedora :: 10 'user Switcher' Crash?

Jan 5, 2009

Fedora 10 64bit install from DVD. Working my way through the how to's, this is my first linux experience!When I choose the user switcher > other OR system > Logout user > Switch user my system goes to a blank screen and I can only get it back by using the reset switch (or power off)If user1 logs out, user2 can then log on and vise versa.I can go to applications > terminal as user1 and su user2 no problem ( and back to user1)but if I use the user switcher = problem.I am fairly sure that the users are set up correctly, they all work individually.I searched the forums and there seems to be no current similar problems mentioned.My system is a gigabyte GA K8VM800M (onboard graphics and sound) AMD Sempron 1GB ram 40GB HD I used the DVD to install on to previously used HD with no other OS on it, I chose the 'use the whole hard drive for fedora' option and had no reported problems with the install.Have I got something set up incorrectly? or where should a look for help on this.

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 :: Running Compiz At Login Instead Of Metacity?

Nov 21, 2010

I would like to be able to use compizconfig-settings-manager to set some custom settings for compiz, and then have compiz be the window manager that runs when I log in. The trouble is that I cannot seem to find a good way to have compiz run at log in. I can add "compiz --replace" to my startup programs list, but this loads metacity and then replacing it with compiz and seem to add a bit to the startup time (not to mention it seems to be slightly unreliable).

Further, I tried this: Uninstalled compizconfig-settings manager. In appearance preferences, set visual effects to normal. Everything seems to work fine until I log in again, at which point no window manager runs. Setting visual effects to none makes metacity load.
