Thread: Compiz safe to uninstall?

    Default Compiz safe to uninstall?


    I'm thinking since I don't use all those 3d effects,etc and see no need
    for them since I'm usually just editing photos, music listening and
    movie watching among other productive things.

    And see no need to keep Compiz or Emerald. If I remove it all will the
    system still live with no issues?

    My system doesn't have any compiz installed. I would think yours can
    live with out it also.

    Compiz is not like something your SUSE can't live without, it really
    just an enhancement, but they do mention that it could cause some
    damage. I wouldnt do it, unless I really need to get rid of it because
    of any reason, but once again, I would just leave it be, and not use it
    or w/e.

    Btw, do you have Compiz Fusion ? Simply because they say it could
    damage system really badly

    It should be fine. I have 11.1 running in a VM with no compiz and it
    seems perfectly happy.

    This is what's listed in the installed section when I look up compiz...
    So if it's best just to leave it, I shall. But I'm gonna need to
    repartition my drive to make more room for software to update, etc.

    You'll be fine if you remove all of those. Nothing outside of compiz
    itself will be affected.*

    Though I question whether doing so will buy you enough free space in
    the long run. Even if you remove them, you may need to resize
    partitions later. Don't read this as an argument to not remove them, it
    is safe to do so.

    *some other applications, like gnome terminal, use a compositing window
    manager to provide transparency. They'll still work without it, but the
    effects won't be exactly the same.

    Well I might do it piecework... and hack away at it little by little and
    see what happens. Good project to work on once I eat dinner.

    Thanks to all for the info and any future info.

    And if you are using kde 4.2 it has her own compositing effects
    comparable to compiz.

    Nah, not a huge fan of KDE, it's nice. But I like Gnome personally. I've
    had KDE on Mandriva before on my formerly running laptop which met the
    scrap pile recently.

    All of the Compiz stuff was uninstalled, rebooted and no ill-effects.
