How to configure Compiz once you have it working?
Posted 21 December 2007 - 05:15 PM
I then installed Compiz - as per http://technowizah.c...glx-compiz.html
So now compiz is working impressively (I just wanted to show off the eeePC) but transparency is not working correctly (setting a window transparent just makes it go dark) - most annoying is that all windows seem to have a transparent border (maybe shadow) that appears black - so I'd like to turn it off.
Any idea how to configure compiz in this environment? The config plugin seems to be designed for Gnome and I can't find how to launch it.

You can edit settings by installing gconf-editor and running from command line.

video will generally not work with compiz, so here's what to do to revert back to the default windows manager if needed:
go to your console, make sure you're in root, and type:
that's it, should be good to go
To revert to compiz just type:
ok, so that makes one issue tolerable - next -> window size is too long, and locked from dragging above top edge:
get the gconf editor: **Note i've added the debian reposis' ala. the wiki, and enabled pinning as shown
sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
let it finish, then type in:
go through the logical progression (apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options)
scroll to the shortcut for maximize vertically and change from Disabled to:
now this should take effect immediately, so alt+F10 to bring the windows to size
ok...... its now 4am and i have class in 5 hours..... more to come - from me and hopefully others!!!
Please let me know of any results you have - similar or otherwise :)

in reference to installing compiz through the terminal command "sudo apt-get install compiz" I get the error: Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package compiz
can anyone tell me what im doing wrong?
I've installed things through the terminal before and from what i understand i need to specify a website to get the repository from, is this correct?
Edit:: Never mind, the repositories randomly appeared, got it installed and working beautifully now :)

I really like the lite footprint, load speed, and general stability of the default xandros os and dont really want to put on ubuntu just for compiz but compiz really makes it user friendly with the small screen. Is anyone working on this?
Could someone help me add the shortcut that would run the command lines to toggle compiz and kwin window managers?
Also, whats the difference between the "3ddesktop" that is in the xandros repositories and compiz? would that be a better option?
