Thread: Compiz - no window decorations for compiz in 11.3, kde4

    After "focusing on usability", now the distribution is for "open minds". However, reading the posts of some moderators I feel like an "open idiot". I am not particularly intelligent, but such arguing could be a provocation for some users. So, I take the liberty to inform about Compiz the Community members who are interested.

    According with a moderator in the German forum, hi has the task to repackage Compiz for OpenSuse 11.3. The process is not yet finished, fusion-icon will be finished pretty soon, but emerald will need longer. Hi stressed that hi has also a private life, what I understand very well being an aspiring open mind.
    Next time, the Moderators could also answer with "I don't know" what should be understandable by open minds.

    By the way, in my opinion the KDE compiz is inferior. I don't like the KDE window decorations and I use the Compiz zoom functions to see better some videos.

    Concerning the "Cube"...

    Thank you very much lotz1009 for working on these packages. Would you mind if I include a new post in my guide that includes how to use emerald and fusion-icon from your repositories?

    Take Care,

    Has anyone got the window deco working in 11.4?

    I followed different procedures, including Installing and Configuring Compiz but the window deco just won't start.

    I tried compiz 0.9.2 packages and 0.9.4 packages, same results.
    I tried with nouveau video drivers as well as nVIDIA's drivers, same results.

    The thing is, compiz has many productivity features I need to use (including the Window Rules and Place Windows plug-ins, which are very very useful for me). KWin is far from there.

    I have a gut feeling missing deco is not due to drivers.
    I have not tried it yet on 11.4. I'll take a look today and let you know
    how it worked for me.
    By the way is using emerald as window manager an option for you?
    emerald --replace
    command in windows decoration tab
    usually worked with no problems.

    Well the problem comes from there: there is no "emerald" basic package in the 11.4 repos.

    Not here Index of /repositories/X11:/Compiz/openSUSE_11.4
    Not here either Index of /repositories/home:/lOtz1009:/emerald/openSUSE_11.4
    And not here as well Index of /repositories/home:/lOtz1009:/emerald/openSUSE_Factory
    Packman also does not provide emerald PackMan :: Search results

    So I wanted to keep kde4-window-deco so that I can at least use the potential of compiz, but there I came to the point where the deco does not start, or crashes after trying to start. I can post errors for sure, but before I wanted to know if anyone had compiz with deco (whichever ones) working in 11.4 KDE4.6.

    ok, Here we are i got it to work in some rather nasty way ... KDE windows decorator crashes as it is written in our compiz wiki.
    so:
    1. install compiz with compiz-gnome.
    2. start ccsm click on plugins you want to use including windows decoration plugin and add command gtk-window-decorator -replace
    3. go to kde system settings (default aplications) and set compiz as default window/session manager.

    It worked for me BUT. Kde4.6 is 'RESISTING' this kind of 'rape' : kickoff aplication launcher not really working though alt+F2 works fine
    and i guess there will be other not pleasant surprises. so .... it's sad story here form my point of views. Kwin is dominating and
    I'm not sure here's 'clean fight here'...

    I figure this walk around from compiz wiki http://wiki.compiz.org/Plugins/Decoration

    That's sad, I really don't like that, KWin is not yet ready to overtake Compiz.

    How will I have my windows to always open in the specified viewports/workspaces, with specific size/geometry and specific place (X,Y) on screen if I don't use Compiz? Unless there is another application doing that, I may google around and see.

    Also Kwin does not have the effect for which you scroll your mouse button on the title bar and it scrolls up and down the window but keeps the title bar visible. I use that feature a lot, could not find anything comparable in KWin.

    I will try to dig more and see who can do what to have Compiz working in KDE4.6.

    tnx
