Re: Compiz Kills Window Buttons & Panel Toolbar Window Switc

Rather than experimenting with settings, try my ccsm profile, which is at the end of this post. Then go to ccsm and select preferences (on the left). Select export, and export your ccsm profile, in case you want to go back to it. Then import the profile I have provided below and see if it solves the...

Re: Compiz Kills Window Buttons & Panel Toolbar Window Switc

I found gconf-editor not useful, use ubuntu tweak instead. The theme area is in the theme button in the tweaks tab. Also clean the system using the janitor tab in ubuntu tweak in case a cache is corrupted.

Re: Can Compiz Allow Button Bars And Toolbar Menus in XFCE?

Also try resetting the .cache folder as it may be corrupted. Here's what to do. Open your home folder. Under "View", select "Show Hidden". Now all you have to do is rename .cache to something like .cachebak and reboot. The system will create a new .cache.

Re: Can Compiz Allow Button Bars And Toolbar Menus in XFCE?

To fix the plugin text not loaded issue. Go to ccsm which is the compiz settings manager and tick the text plugin box, as it s not ticked. Then reboot and see if everything now works.

Have a look at the end of this thread, especially the startup applications bit that I think you have not set up, and may be why on reboot you are having problems: http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=199&t=103822&p=587697 Also it is better to use ubuntu tweak rather than gconf-editor as gconf-...

Re: Window Theme/GTK+ Theme issues

Install Ubuntu Tweak. Use it to change the theme. Works for me.

Hopefully it works for you.

Re: Compiz doesn't have window borders in 13 MATE?

I use ubuntu tweak 0.7.1 to change the themes easily, on my setup which has mate and compiz.

In ubuntu tweak, click the Tweaks tab and the window borders change with the 'window theme' combobox.

Fix for conky problems in Linux mint 13

I had a number of problems with conky and linux mint 13. These were all fixed for me by using conky 1.9.0-2, after finding this information on page 1991 of a conky forum on ubuntu forums. These are the locations of the conky 1.9.0-2 files: 32bit- https://launchpad.net/~vincent-c/+archive/conky/+file...

Re: LMDE Boot Faster

I agree, Linux Mint Maya is considerably faster to boot up and shut down. Currently prefer LMDE 13 as Compiz and Conky work much better in LMDE.

Any tips for speeding up startup and shutdown?

Re: System monitor on the panel;

Have you tried Conky?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conky_(software)

It does not work on the panel, but I found it better than system monitor.

However, if that is not an option there is a system monitor applet.

Yes doing killall on Marco makes it work, is there a fix for this bug in another repo that I do not know about? I found putting 'killall -9 marco' in the startup applications with 'compiz --replace' also made my machine bootup faster as well as shutdown faster, but I still had to do another 'killall...
