Compiz Fusion not working (Gnome Classic)

Postby safrab62 » Mon Feb 20, 2012 9:37 am


I followed this link to install Compiz. ... 2-gnome-12
My Nvidia Geforce 8 works fine.
After I do:

apt-get install compiz compiz-plugins compiz-plugins-main python-compizconfig compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins-extra

and configure the plugins using the Compiz settings manager and add

compiz --replace
(maybe this should be compiz --replace &)

to the Start Applications X starts as usual but when the replace takes place the screen becomes white (background picture vanishes and the icons vanish too).
I've deleted the Compiz start so far.

BTW: I do not have Compiz Fusion Icon (at least I can't find it) and THAT's the way I want Compiz to start.
I use Blender a lot, which is not compatible with Compiz.
I do traning courses and I use Compiz features for this only (cursor empasizing for projector usage, screen painting to mention a few).

Regards and thanks for any hint
