Compiz/Emerald Bootup in xfce

Postby Andy Mack on Sat Mar 01, 2008 1:18 pm

Hiya, sorry if this has been answered before but I couldn't find it.

I have compiz/emerald setup on XFCE Community version but when I reboot I have to enable the effects again, am I missing something simple to fix it?

Thanks
Andy

I'm not all that familiar with xfce but you may have to add it to the autostarting applications

Hey Andy, this link has a howto for setting up compiz. It is actually for Xubuntu Gutsy, and I don't know whether you are using the Cassandra stable or the Daryna beta 8. If you are using the beta, it should all work, but since you already have it installed, that should not be a huge deal. You can skip down to the part where he talks about making compiz default. The first method he describes I know works in Mint, as I have done it before. The "more-difficult-but-better" way I have not tried, so I cannot say for sure. However, I think it would work, since most (almost all) *buntu tutorials will work in Mint also. Hope this helps you out.

Thanks eagle
Funny - this was unanswered for a week and I finally had to say something - then a seemingly good answer pops up....
