Compiz - wobbly windows

Postby bigseb on Thu Dec 01, 2011 5:26 pm

I like the wobbly windows effect. Is this possible in Mint? Not sure.

Should be. System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager > Effects > Wobbly Windows does it for me.

I dont have that. According to Synaptic though compiz is installed. Am I missing something else?

soccerz619 has another menu and you are using the mintmenu.
The equivalent for you should be:
menu > control centre > CompizConfig Settings Manager > Effects > Wobbly Windows

Compiz worked when I installed cairo dock, logged out, and clicked on the icon to the right of the sign in where it says "cairo dock with effects." Compiz works great but there are no panels so I have everything on my dock. :wink:

I don't have anything like that. See screenshot of synaptic:

Compiz appears to be installed, what is going on? I assume I am doing some thing wrong... :?

Look in your menu and try to find the settings for Compiz. My menu, my "Start Button", is different from yours. Find your "Start Button" and go "menu > control centre > CompizConfig Settings Manager > Effects > Wobbly Windows". Or just open a terminal and type
Code: Select all

The answer depends on which version of mint you have, which no one has yet asked you?

Right the settings manager is installer and wobbly windows is ticked. Still isn't working though. What am I doing wrong?

Are you other settings turned on and working too? Or are other things not working. It may have to do with which driver you're using too. I have two graphics card drivers that would work on mine, and leave my Compiz on and use other programs instead of Flash just for Compiz haha.

Are you in main gnome 3.2 or fallback mode? Compiz last I tried wouldn't work in the main desktop.

If in fallnack try running compiz --replace in your terminal then try wobbly windows.

If you running you fusion-icon select compiz as your windows manager.

Then as wyrdoak says, it won't work in the main desktop, i.e. gnome shell, as this uses mutter which is incompatible, you can only use it in fallback mode or Mate.

Maybe sooner or latter someone will come up with shell extensions for mutter for similar eye candy.
