Thread: No mutter decorations

  1. #1

    Default No mutter decorations

    I am trying to run mutter under xfce, problem is there is no decorations.
    I installed gconf-editor, gnome-tweak-tool and gnome-control-center but
    I see no options regarding the decorations.
    I haven't check gnome-themes.
    Any hint is appreciated.

    This is on openSUSE 12.2

    What do you mean by "no decorations"? If application windows don't have a title bar, then the window manager has crashed (mutter or another one). You should have a look in your .xsession-errors to find the cause.

    Why do you want to run mutter under xfce? You don't have to answer, but it sounds like a weird idea. (?)

    Here is the error
    Code:
    Window manager warning: Log level 16: The program 'mutter' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
      (Details: serial 623 error_code 8 request_code 7 minor_code 0)
      (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
       that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
       To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
       variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
       backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

    To add on my first post.
    I think normally, when window decoration fails to load, you will not be able to move the window with mouse.
    In this case even with out the decoration I can still move the window using the mouse.
