SOLVED Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon and Compiz

Post by a.steve70 » Sun Jun 10, 2012 1:08 am

Anyone know why I cant use Wobbly Windows? When I tried to set it up it worked for a few minutes then stopped and I cannot get it back.

Compiz doesn't work with Cinnamon.

Try MATE instead.

Thanks for the info Myrmidon83, I will try it. I hope it's more stable than Cinnamon.

No problem. :)

It's very stable (64-bit) on my laptop (nvidia 8200m G). My mum's laptop (has a crappy via gfx card, 32bit) has some issues though.

Hopefully you get on ok with it.

EDIT: Bare in mind that compiz has NO options selected by default and when you first start it, your titlebar will disappear, make sure these options are activated after you boot up to fix, window decoration, move window and resize window to make things normal. Then you can play around with the other settings or follow the guides to install Emerald etc.
