Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Hey... everyone has been great :) It would seem that Compiz is rather a unique product lol. My reasons for trying it aren't really all that important when it comes down to it. I seem to be getting quite a bit of rippling/rolling ( a minor form of screen tearing perhaps?) in my web browsers which is ...

Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Didn't need to :) Window Decorations and the emerald --replace command were installed from the get-go.

Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Sigh... there is something that I am clearly missing here. When I click on the Fusion icon and select the Emerald Theme Manager and then click on one of the packages (Human Ubuntulooks is as good as any)... well, nothing happens. It doesn't seem to matter whether I choose the Compiz Window Manager o...

Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Thanks, asqwerth... but at close to midnight, this sounds like a project for the morning lol. I found an interesting orange desktop pic online, so I'm guessing Numix may even go with that :) So, do you have to 'import' the theme you want?

Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Oh, the Compiz Fusion icon definitely isn't in the sessions and startup autostart tab. I just checked. Do I definitely 'have' to do that to also get Compiz and the Fusion icon in the panel to work properly?

Re: Compiz and missing Window Decorations

Hey asqwerth and richb Thanks for taking the time to answer, much appreciated :) Firstly, when I hit the Fusion icon in the panel, the Emerald Theme Manager is actually there. When I double-check in Synaptic, both emerald and emerald-themes are definitely installed. When I click the Fusion icon and ...

Re: NVIDIA Drivers won't install

my assumption is that the open sourve nvidia driver (nouveau) has been blacklisted by the install of the 375 drivers. then X won't start because there is no viable driver currently available (the nvidia one specified in the xorg.conf file is missing, and noveau is blacklisted so won't load). assumi...
