Ubuntu :: Turn Off Wobbly Windows In Terminal ?

May 5, 2010

I was tweakng the desktop effects in kubuntu and adjusted the stiffness slidder to max out wabbly windows so I could compare it to more stiffer option. It is only supposed to wobble when the window is moved but as soon as I hit the apply button the window started wobbling all over the place! So fast, that I can barely tell what window it is! It is impossible for me to open any windows without them flickering all over the place. I will not be able to fix this inside KDE.

Does anyone know of a command-line option to turn desktop effects off? Is there a desktop configuration file somewere I can edit w/ nano? I am having to write this on windows7 because I can't use any windows in linux.

Ubuntu :: Natty - Gnome And Wobbly Windows

Jun 7, 2011

Upgraded to 11.04, tried Unity for a month but hated it, reverted back to Gnome today, now I have no wobbly windows.

I've enabled WW in CCSM and all the settings are defaulted. I've tried removing all traces of Unity using synaptic, but it just doesn't seem to have made a difference.

I've read a few threads about this, but so far haven't seen a fix other than "it just started working", so any pointers or ideas would be great as it hasn't just started working for me.

Dell Latitude D620 with current nVidia proprietary driver installed.

Debian Multimedia :: Is There Something Extra Need To Install To Get 'wobbly Windows?

Jul 9, 2011

Not too happy with Ubuntu's venture into 'unity' so intend to give debian a 'test drive'.Re some eye candy, compiz-config settings manager enables numerous attractive settings but it doesn't seem to work on my machine.On Ubuntu wobbly windows and desktop cube works fine but not as it stands with my debian setup.Under Preferences-appearance debian has 3 tabs, Ubuntu has an extra tab which I think may be the key.Is there something extra I need to install on debian to get my 'wobbly windows'.

OpenSUSE :: Unable 'wobbly Windows' And Translucent Borders?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to get to the config page where I once enabled wobbly windows and translucent borders. For the life of me, I can't seem to find it. I would think it to be in the desktop settings and associated with the qt4 engine somewhere, but it continues to evade me. How did I arrive at that config page??

Ubuntu :: Compiz - No Workspaces Or Wobbly Windows After A Botched Source Install?

Sep 15, 2010

In order to correct bug #459647 in compiz (as I have done on 2 other PCs) I downloaded, modified, and compiled the source with apt-src and make. Then I installed the produced .deb files with dpkg -i. For whatever reason the new compiz didn't have wobbly windows nor could I switch workspaces. Compiz is running and I do know however that compositing is working as Docky is still functional (and doesn't really work without compositing).

So I uninstalled all of the compiz packages and reinstalled the versions from the official repository. The same issue remained. During this time I have restarted my computer several times with different configurations. I tried to install compiz packages from the [URL]...ubuntu PPA and still the same problems exist. I'm not sure if there are any other problems that I haven't noticed yet. Finally, in an attempt to fully purge my computer of all things compiz and start over, I got the following error:

masen@dv6000m:~$ sudo apt-get autoremove --purge compiz*
[sudo] password for masen:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package compiz-code

I'm not sure what "compiz-code" is, but that's the name of the folder that I downloaded the source into. After this command, no packages are removed. I'm currently running Lucid 10.4.1 with all the latest updates. My graphics card is an Intel 945M mobile chipset. I run a similar configuration on 2 other computers with no issues. Has anyone ever seen this? Or have any idea how I can get compiz-code out of my package database. I know the problems I'm encountering aren't high priority, but not having workspaces gets annoying and I have no clue what else is broken with my 'half-broken' compiz.

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Turn Off Beep In Virtual Terminal

Feb 9, 2010

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell XPS M1530. Sometimes i get a _VERY_ loud beep-sound, eg when i run out of battery or, the case that has me coming here when i'm working in a virtual terminal (tty1-6) and hit backspace once too often, that is, when the command line is actually empty.Not that big of a deal you might think, but, especially when you're wearing good (read: possibly loud) headphones the experience is that god damn unpleasant that i'd like to make sure it won't happen again.Oh and well, just hitting mute (in gnome, which doesn't have a lot to do with tty1 anyways) won't do the job.

OpenSUSE Install :: Way To Turn The Terminal Auto-detect Off?

Jun 14, 2011

SuSE 11.4 is a wonderful release, but two chronic problems remain. The most serious is the inability to get Gnome to recognize an intel driver parameter specification in xorg.conf or 50-screen.conf with a predetermined, working screen specification. With the latest update that includes: [url]

Gnome will boot up in a strange resolution with a display of a pink screen and fragments of icons split and duplicated over the display. Teasing open the terminal parameter screen, terminal parameters (resolution, horizontal rate) appear to be correct. The terminal type is 'undefined', whether the screen is operating correctly or not, and any attempt to set defaults are refused. Perhaps the intel driver has not been selected by the operating system. Is there a way to specify a default screen driver?

This has been a chronic problem, now aggravated with the latest update to the point where the computer is now rendered inoperative.

Ironically, the other problem, that of the difficulty in downloading certain update files also remains. Had an elaborate update workaround procedure not been followed, the system would still be usable.

General :: Turn Off Font-antialiasing Only For Gnome-terminal But Not For Other Applications?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running GNOME (gnome-session under xmonad). I want to turn off antialiasing (i.e. use monochrome mode) for fonts in gnome-terminal. But I want to retain antialiasing for other applications, like Firefox. Is this possible?

Antialiasing is great and almost necessary for using Firefox or Chrome. But it makes the fonts in gnome-terminal blurry at sizes around 12 or smaller.

Otherwise, I'll just have to use xterm, which seems not to anti-alias its fonts under any circumstances.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Wobbly Window In VirtualBox Guest?

Dec 14, 2010

I'm having trouble with my Ubuntu VM's --I'm running a Win 7 Home Premium Host, (8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVidia GeForce Video) Oracle VirtualBox (Current version)

-- When I set up Linux VM's w/ 3D Acceleration, and 128MB Video Ram,
-- I can't enable the 'Extra' Video Effects, to get Compiz working.
-- Even when VBox Guest Additions is installed.

VBox Guest Additions does let me use Full Screen, & Seamless mode, correctly though.
But if I try to set 'Extra' Video Effects, it can't find the correct driver.

ps -A | grep compiz
Does not show compiz running.

FYI: Nor can I get Unity on 11.04 Alpha 1, under the VM.

Ubuntu :: Turn Off Live CD Feature To Check Windows Drive?

Feb 3, 2010

I used a Karmic Live CD to make a forensic image off of a older Windows computer that has a fat32 drive. Immediately after booting it said it was correcting a problem on the drive, I assume that it was running fsck on it. I want to customize my own live CD to not do this. Though I suppose it doesn't do it for ntfs since there isn't a fsck for it yet.

I create my own live CD, so I can modify what ever. Where is it? Initrd?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Turn Wifi On After Windows Hibernate

Sep 1, 2011

I own an Acer Aspire 5552g. I have installed 2 systems on it: Windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10. Everything works fine except wifi. There is a lot of threads connected to this topic, but none has solved my problem yet. The problem occurs when I hibernate Windows and then load ubuntu - I get unable to turn wifi on. As rfkill says - it is hard blocked. It wouldn't be a problem if i had a hard switch for wifi. but I only have fn+F3 for that, which somehow fails to work in my situation.


igor@igor-Aspire-5552G:~$ rfkill list
1: phy1: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

If I reboot Windows and then start ubuntu - everything's fine and working. fn+F3 turns wifi on and off as expected. I will provide some more info: when wifi's working:


igor@igor-Aspire-5552G:/sys/class/rfkill/rfkill1$ cat state

1 when it doesn't:


igor@igor-Aspire-5552G:/sys/class/rfkill/rfkill1$ cat state

2 some additional info:
