Re: Xfce + compiz, buggy panel, workspace problem

After playing around a bit there only seems to be a couple of good workspace/monitor configurations for compiz and xfce: A) 4 compiz desktops on a single monitor - for advanced users using one monitor set 1 xfce workspace (in xfce settings > workspaces) set 4 compiz workspaces (in compiz settings > ...

Re: Compiz cubeaddon plugin

looking around it seems the compiz-fusion project is now defunct and the compiz-fusion packages have been deleted from ubuntu repos.

Maybe the kde kWin cube is the only way to get this surface reflection effect now ?

Re: Compiz cubeaddon plugin

Only old versions of compiz have this plugin 0.7.6 was the last to support it I think.
We are now on 0.9.8.6 of compiz
Project pages still exist but it doesn't seem under development ?

It might be in the compiz-fusion versions of compiz packages ?

Re: Xfce + compiz, buggy panel, workspace problem

The xfce workspace switcher doesn't work well with compiz so it's best removed

You can set the properties of the window buttons xfce panel applet to show just current workspace or all workspace windows

Re: Can't Find User Accounts & Can't Open Items As Root In X

best to do a clean mint 14 xfce install on the machine I think.

However you might find that the mate version of mint 14 isn't much heavier than the xfce version and works better out-of-the-box for you ?

Re: Can't Find User Accounts & Can't Open Items As Root In X

yep if you want the same functionality in xfce as cinnamon/mate/gnome3 shell you can just install various gnome or mate packages. xfce is less of an out of the box experience and more a blank canvas to build your desktop UI on. Thus it's more popular with advanced users who have a checklist of custo...

Do your sound settings not look like this ? Do you still get low volume over 100% ? Have you selected the correct sound output if you have more than one ? I have found that most linux sound problems are easily fixed (as are wifi problems) via a cheap linux compatible USB soundcard: e.g. a card like ...

Re: No Data In Weather Applet

there is a package called indicator-weather in the repos too.

Its designed for unity but works in xfce however when I tried it the location lookup wasn't working thus rendering it useless at the moment.

It displays the temperature in the panel but only gives a 2 day forecast.

Re: Compiz at Startup

in settings > session and startup > app autostart

make sure you are starting fusion icon with the -f switch, this will force fusion icon to start compiz
you don't need a compiz --replace entry in autostart if you do this.
