Ubuntu :: Compiz No Longer Working?

Mar 18, 2010

I have been using some of the compiz effects now for just over a week with no problems. but yesterday they stopped working for what seems to be no reason. I have the recommended nVidia driver installed, here is my graphics card from lspci:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 LE] (rev a1)

I right clicked on my desktop, and went to 'Change Destop background', then visual effects. This has been set to None. I cannot change this to Normal or extra, as I get an error saying

Desktop effects could not be enabled

I have followed another thread which explained how to unistall and reinstall compiz, but it did nothing.

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.

Software :: Compiz No Longer Working - Xorg.conf Blank After Attempting To Plug In Second Monitor

Sep 22, 2010

I recently tried to plug in a second monitor to my graphics card in an attempt to mess around with a dual monitor set up. This created a duplicate effect (which I expected at first) but downgraded my original monitor to the second monitors max resolution. Now my xorg.conf appears to be blank and I dont believe my fglrx drivers are working anymore.

When I try to start compiz from bash I get the following:


When I attempt fglrxinfo:


I'm running Kubuntu, Karmic
ATI Radion x1350

What could have happened? All I did was plug in a second monitor and restart!

Ubuntu :: Compiz No Longer Runs?

Jul 5, 2010

I have been running Lucid since it was in beta, and have never had any problems with Compiz. Now, all of a sudden it will not launch. If I try to run it from a terminal I get the following:

compiz (core) - Fatal: Software rendering detected.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Launching fallback window manager I am running an Intel 82915G/GV/910GL built in graphics controller, and when I run the compiz-check script everything checks out fine.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Is Not Working?

Jan 24, 2011

I hope I'm posting in the right place. I'm relatively new to ubuntu. here goes:Compiz is not working. I have compiz installed, together with the CompizConfig settings manager, and the simple ccsm. When I change the settings in either of those things (or in System->Administration->Appearance->visual effects), no changes actually occur. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling compiz, and I tried a host of other things I could find advised for my situation. I'm at my wits end about this. When I type 'compiz' into the terminal, the screen, and all the windows, flash like crazy for a few seconds, and then the terminal returns:


Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Launching fallback window manager and just hangs there indefinitely.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Button No Longer Working

May 19, 2010

I have a 'Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000'. In addition to the regular left/right click and scroll wheel it has an extra button on the side. In previous versions of Ubuntu I was able to remap this button to act as double-click using 'xbindkeys'. However, in Lucid this no longer seems to work. X seems to know about all of the buttons on the mouse since 'xinput' lists the device as having 13 buttons and labels button 8 as 'Button Side'. However, 'xev' does not show a button event when I press the button. Instead it shows:

Ubuntu :: Extra Screensavers No Longer Working?

May 26, 2010

I've recently installed the package xscreensaver-gl-extra, and noticed not one of the screensavers on that package works - all I get is a blank screen on all of them. However, I remember those screensavers working under Jaunty on exactly the same hardware (didn't test them on Karmic).How can I make them work again?

Ubuntu :: Maverick - Compiz Not Working?

Oct 10, 2010

I've heard that Compiz is not working in Maverick. Is this true? Has it impacted computers with decent graphics cards much, or is it no big deal? I'm kinda confused, because of the Ubiquity thing. Is that replacing compiz?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - No Compiz Effects Seems To Be Working

Dec 2, 2010

I've been running an emerald theme in compiz for few months now and everything was running fine when a couple days ago VLC started acting weird and playing little static clicks every few seconds. Then the next time I booted up after an initial second of flashing my full desktop the screen blanked off a section on the left and bottom of my screen. When I logged in docky told me it was having trouble with the compositing, but when I scrolled over the spot where my docks are they were there. My arrow can be seen in the black areas as can the start panel when I scroll over it, but aside from that it is black and when I open I window the blackness covers it in that part. None of my compiz effects seem to be working.

I am running a pretty basic motherboard and I know basically nothing about this kind of thing but I looked up the built in integrated video card online : ATI Radeon - HD3000 Graphics, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512 MB. I have an ATI driver installed but when I look at my drivers it says it is installed but not currently in use. When I look at my visual effects page it is on none, so I tried changing it to normal and it says the effects can't be enabled. I am running a dual boot with windows and when I go into windows there doesn't seem to be any problems. I am running a Biostar A760G M2+, an AMD AthlonII x4 and running Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Firewire On IMac G3 No Longer Working?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm not sure if I have a hardware or OS problem. Firewire on my old G3 iMac has stopped working. Previously I've used a scanner and an external hard drive (Iomega eGo) without problems while running Lucid. Now neither works with the iMac, though they both work when connected to a PC. Both the PC and the iMac are running the latest versions of Lucid.

I can't tell when the problem began since I don't use the scanner or hard drive that often. I did try booting using the live 10.04 CD for PowerPC and had no joy with either device.The LCD on the hard drive lights when connected to the firewire port so power is coming through. The scanner has its own power supply.Checking with lsmod I see that both the modules ieee1394 and ohci1394 are loaded.I suspect it's a problem with the hardware. Does any one have an idea how I can go about verifying that? I'd hate to bin an old faithful without first checking everything out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Is No Longer Working After Update

Dec 5, 2010

I am running 10.10 on a 21.5 inch imac. I just ran some updates and rebooted, turned on rhythmbox to play some tunes and realized there is no sound. Tried ....., no yield. Tried a different user account still no sound. SO I rebooted into osx and I have sound. Its therefore a software issue for sure. I plugged in headphones and changed to the appropriate output in the settings manager, sound came out, but out of phase. What going on here? any ideas would be awesome.

Ubuntu :: Ctrl+Esc No Longer Working After Natty Upgrade

May 1, 2011

Long story short, my HTPC has a keyboard, but no mouse.I'd gotten pretty good at working the machine with no mouse, but after my upgrade to Natty Narwhal today, the Ctrl+Esc shortcut to open the Applications window no longer works. Alt+F2 only works when another application is already open.I can get to the Applications menu using Ctrl+Alt+NumLock and mouse emulation, but it's pretty painful.Have I messed something up here? My install went a little messy, but I've managed to get everything else working and I doubt a keyboard control would be a bad install/upgrade.
