Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

Oh, I forgot to link. Nice work, partner wink

I have some further good news: ShadowKyogre wants to host the .debs on his/her website! I'll email them tomorrow and they should be online not much later. I'll post a link and edit the guide when it's up!

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

Progress report

This step should be added to the How To

$ sudo dpkg -i compiz-boxmenu_1.0_all.deb

Question - When you get to the tweak the compizconfig-settings-manager/ccsm section, should that be done in your current DE or should you login to the new Compiz DE to do it?

Last - Logging into the Compiz Standalone,  I have no desktop, just a black screen after following these steps.. I have not done the ccsm tweaks yet, but I do not think that will be relevant...

Finally, I think it may be good to number your steps in this How To, but that is just me...

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

One thing I want to note is that I just got compiz working on LMDE using an nvidia card.  It required an older driver (173.xxx.xxx) in order to run.

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

I'm tracking testing with Linux Mint DE, but sid with #!.  #! is using Intel, not NVidia.
Not sure why downgrading to 173 is a showstopper.  It's easily installable.

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

I notice you have every thing commented out of the original autostart.sh

I have edited mine now and did the same thing and added what starts in my openbox session...

Will let you know

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

Sitting now in a compiz-standalone session...

I need now to go back through and figure out this right click to get it to work, I have nothing for a right click or a ctrl space which is what I thought I setup

Re: Compiz-Fusion Standalone on #!

No go on the compiz-boxmenu

I can run it from terminal, so it is functional...

There must be something else in ccsm that is not functioning or I do not have turned on
