Thread: compiz does not show max, min, close button (kde 4, suse11)

    Post compiz does not show max, min, close button (kde 4, suse11)

    As soon as I switch to compiz as window manager, most of the 3d features seem to work. However, no window has its maximize, minimize and close button any more.
    They appear if I click approx. where they should be, but they are not drawn from the beginning.
    I have an nVidia 6600 GT, use the latest nVidia Driver 173.14.09, an ASUS A8N-E board. I already tried the
    sudo nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals --composite
    to update my xorg.conf file.
    This looks like:
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen[0]"
    Device "Device[0]"
    Monitor "Monitor[0]"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    ...
    It does not seem to help. As soon as I pick Compiz, the max, min and close buttons are gone.
    Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    I encountered the same problem, but only with firefox! To make the case even more mysterious, it comes and goes in a random fashion. (Right now everything is ok, for instance.) Somebody found a hack that restarts the window decorations by hand over the terminal. (Try google.)

    Thanks for the idea.
    I accidentally tried
    kde-window-decorator --replace
    which gave me back max, min and close buttons, but with kde3 look (which looks somehow odd in kde4 environment)
    after trying
    kde4-window-decorator --replace
    I got back the kde4 title line again, however, still without max, min and close buttons. If I click on them where they should be they appear and stay there then. Very annoying behaviour.
    Is there any other setting I could try.
    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks.

    Well, none of that works.
    I have tried compiz --replace ccp
    which gives me new window title bars, however, again without the "open", "close" and "max" buttons.
    I have also searched the nVidia hints with editing xorg.conf under Compiz.org :: NVidia - Compiz but that does not help either.
    Everything works fine, the effects are all there, but the three buttons just don't want to work.
    I think I give up and go back using the standard kdewin manager again. Has less effects but the windows can at least get closed.
    Thanks anyway.

    Ha, success.
    I got it to work.
    Solution was to go to
    Compiz Fusion - openSUSE
    and click the one-click-install to install compiz again. The standard installation that came with with the DVD obviously had some problems. Yast did install for a while and since then everything works. Thanks again for the help.

    This solved it. Thank you very much.

    [Edit]
    It only works when Konsole is open and running kde4-window-decorator --replace. If you close it, they dissapear again.
    Any permanent solution?

    Update:

    I typed the code I had typed in Konsole on the Compiz' Windows Decorator plug-in command and it now works.
