Wobbly Windows doesn't do anything?

Post by eiger3970 » Sat Jun 20, 2015 11:54 pm

Hello, how to make Wobbly Windows work?
I open Mint 17.1 Control Centre > Personal > CompizConfig Settings Manager > Effects > tick Wobbly Windows > Close > reboot, but no effects?
My machine specs:
Linux Mint 19 Tara 64-bit.
Kernel Linux 4.15.0-54-generic x86_64
MATE 1.20.1
Memory: 1.9 GiB
Processor: Intel Celeron(R) CPU N3060 @ 1.6GHz x 2

Run this terminal command:

Code: Select all

compiz --replace
You may also need to enable the Window Decorations in compiz settings manager.

Awesome! That fixed it.
I ran $ compiz --replace, and the computer screen flashed and went black.
Wobbly Windows didn't work.
I rebooted and Wobbly Windows didn't work.

I ran $ compiz --replace, and after 60 seconds the Wobbly Windows effect works!

Thanks richyrich! (scary profile photo though?)

Sorry, false alarm.
Wobbly windows doesn't work again.
Worked as per step above, however now after reboots, Wobbly Windows doesn't show the effect.
The effect is selected though?

Well, refreshing this issue as I have installed Mint 18 MATE 64-bit and Wobbly Windows still doesn't work?

Your graphics card might not support it.
As I recall, it was something like OpenGL 3 (or greater) [at least on KDE]
