Compiz settings won't take effect

Postby hurinth on Fri Aug 03, 2012 7:20 pm

Hello, I went through this tutorial:

But no matter what I do, each time I open the CCSM, it behaves as if it has never been opened before, and nothing I click in there to enable for example Window Decoration and stuff will take effect.

I think my nVidia drivers are present because I have the NVIDIA X Server Settings installed.

Any idea?

I have you tried to start compiz from the command line:

$ compiz --replace

From the tutorial....
Make sure you did this. :?:

There is some things you have to do to get Compiz work.

1. In a terminal window run this command
Code: Select all
 compiz --replace

(When you want Compiz start automatic you can open Control Center -> Startup Applications, and add a new startup entry called "Compiz" by keeping the same command compiz --replace.)

Similar to this.

2. The CPU usage now raises a lot. That is because there is two competing window-managers running.
To stop that high CPU usage in MATE when running Compiz:

In a terminal run
Code: Select all

When the editor opens:
Go to:
and replace "marco" with "compiz"
