fusion icon

Postby bgast1 on Sun Jan 11, 2009 8:24 pm

1. Is it possible to make the fusion icon come up at boot?

2. Is the way that you turn off Compiz by right clicking on the fusion icon, choosing windows manager to Metacity and then the opposite back to Compiz when you want to turn desktop effects back on?

It seems that I need to turn Desktop effects off when I want to watch a DVD. Otherwise it flickers.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

1. Yes,
MintMenu->Preferences->Sessions. Add, with whatever you want for name, and
Code: Select all
as the command. Put nothing or whatever you want under comment.

2. Yes, it is one way, and probably the fastest, to switch compiz-fusion on/off.
