I'm running 11.04 with Unity and enabled Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager. I ended up disabling services, i think "largedesktop" and enabling others like OpenGL and composite. Anyway, unity no longer works including the bar above and the icons to the left. Any idea how I can fix this?
Upgraded to 10.10 yesterday, something I noticed is that I cannot enable 3D feature with cube? Loaded all of Compiz and drivers, downloaded latest nvidia, but option still "greyed" out. Worked fine with 10.04..
I have nvidia Geforce 9200 M GS graphic processor with a memory of 512 mb and a RAM of 4GB.I install confuse fusion and try to install cube atlantis as instructed in http://www.tips5.com/install-compiz-...fect-on-ubuntuI could install confuse fusion successfully. But in the confuse fusion setting window ,there is no icon called cube atlantis and because of that i couldn't activate cube atlantis
I have Ubuntu 11.04 and I am running it on Ubuntu classic due to not caring for Unity very much. I have an Acer Aspire 5739 and a Nvidia GEForce GT 130M graphics card. Is there any way to have a 3D desktop cube again?
I have read many posts on here and else where and still have not managed to get it working. (I am fairly new to Linux btw so just try to keep that in mind when replying)
I'm trying to get desktop cube in compiz to work. I can select it and create a key combination for it, but I can't get it to work. I tried creating new workspaces and making less but the cube never shows up.
Running Ubuntu Netbook remix on a Toshiba NB500-upgraded to 2 Gigabytes RAM. Very slow opening applications via the side icons. 8-12 seconds. Is that normal for this distro? - No 3D cube. Installed related compiz software, adjusted settings, ticked cubes etc. Not a peep. - No direct desktop access. Only via side icons. Just find it fiddly re: using desktop and changing background via side icons. Couple other items (MBB for one) but for another category.
I was just experimenting with compiz effects on Natty 11.04, and when I clicked desktop cube (which I'm assuming you're not supposed to do, haha), my compiz broke. The pop up windows are way at the top of the screen, almost out of view, and the windows lack the close, minimize, and maximize buttons. I tried reinstalling all the compiz plugins, and when I rebooted I had the same problem! I am using metacity right now, but I would be very sad if i was stuck with it.
So I have been trying to connect my Wiimote up to my PC using the following HOWTO: [URL]... I had it working last week and for some reason it has now stopped working. I am using a USB Bluetooth dongle and I am sure that it is still working because I can connect the Wiimote up to my laptop no problem. What I have noticed is that on my Laptop the bluetooth icon is highlighted and on my PC although the Icon is there it is greyed out. When I go to preferences and click on turn on Bluetooth the button greys out for a while and then comes back saying "Turn Bluetooth on" again.
I installed the server version 10.04. The only problem with the install was setting up the network. I believe it was due to the fact that my nic was not setup correctly. The installation reconciled the nic, but upon the reboot after the install, I had no network capabilities. I tried to ping the router, no luck. ifconfig only showed lo. Also, the GUI (command F7) freezes and does not responds. The last thing shown is configuring web server. I tried to ndsiwrapp the drivers to the nic, but found out that ndsiwrapper is for wifi connections.
I have been using ubuntu 10.10 (running on a Dell Inspiron N4010) for a couple months and love it but the wireless just recently stopped working and I can't figure out how to re-enable it. I've searched endlessly the FAQ's, forums, etc but nothing seems to work.
i'm using a 64 bit system. i'm running cube deformation with cylinder.i am unable to make my cube caps transparent.i've deleted the original cap settings.i have also attempted to log out and in again to see if it would change.also.....my mouse is not changing to it's new pointer when i'm active in compiz.when compiz is off my mouse change is set, when it is on it stays as the white pointer unless i'm on firefox.
I've recently installed a second monitor and it's great having all that extra space.
However, Ubuntu 'loses' the new monitor after a restart and I have to go into System>Preferences>Display and get the second monitor re-enabled and put to the left of my existing monitor. Quick flicker and the second monitor is on.
I don't really want to have to do this every day so am I missing something so my second monitor is remembered?
I have recently installed 10.4 (wubi installation), and am having strange problems with my networking.
It was working fine, wireless enabled, connecting to my network fine. Then for what seems like no reason, it decided to disable the wirless on boot, and I cannot re-enable it, the option to enable it (by right clicking the nm applet) is greyed out.
I have had this problem twice now, the first time it happened, my ubuntu installation was really new, so I just reinstalled, no harm done. The second time I did something that seemed to fix it (for a while at least), but now that is not working.
We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.
i was looking at videos and saw some demonstration of desktop-environment. one demonstration was of an ubuntu with something called atlantic desktop. it is an transparent 3d cube with swimming fishes inside the cube and in the background. i go into comfiz-fusion web-page and there i could read that its not a plugin, but a part of atlantic screensaver that come original with kde4-screensaver-extra, but in my opensuse 11.1 kde4.22 i cant find this.
How do i install the cube Atlantis 2 on my desktop and what application do i have to get to install it on my desktop,im using ubuntu 10.10 i have already install compiz fusion and the regular cube but i wanna install atlantis 2 cube on my pc.
I installed with the image, running alongside Windows 7 on my desktop. I hadn't been in Ubuntu on my laptop for awhile, and hadn't experienced the 11.04 alpha's yet, so I didn't know there would be substantial changes. Obviously, Unity instead of Gnome surprised me a bit, but I have liked it so far.
But here lies the problem. I installed Compiz and ccsm through the software center, then went to enable the desktop cube and rotating cube. I clicked enable/disable on everything that popped up, but I think I must have disabled Unity (whoops). The whole desktop basically disappeared; that is, the dock on the left was gone and the window borders disappeared. I was able to close the windows with Alt+F4, but then couldn't open anything back up. The Super key didn't activate the dock, so it's not like it was hiding. I thought no problem, it'll start back up when I reboot. No dice. Still just the background, nothing to interact with. Only way to do anything is to reboot into with Ctrl+Alt+Dlt.
how do I fix this? Ha sorry for not reading forums beforehand, as I could've avoided this problem. Haven't found any threads on how to fix it, so I decided to start my own.
I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.
today i decided i wanted to use the desktop cube again, so i went through all the compiz settings and got it working in gnome classic. however, when i initiate ratation with the mouse (ctrl>alt>button 1) it is sloooow whenever there is a window open (even just one). rotating away from the workspace with a window does seem to speed up the framerate. when i had maverick 10.10 it was never this slow.
I am using openSUSE since last 4 years ,which is installed on my External Transcend 320 Gig External Hard-disk. Now I don't know why but my network is not working, i.e. when I click on "Network Manager", it reads, "Network Manager disabled". So is there any way to overcome from this problem? I also tried to restart the network service but, it did not worked.
Last night I already succeeded upgrading to 10.10 (Maverick meerkat), on previous version I never face wireless issue after installed additional package (sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter). But after upgrading I saw the wireless is disabled and the hardware indicator light off. I used Lenovo notebook.
