CompizConfig Settings Manager won't save anything

Hi all,

Whenever I tick boxes it doesn’t save anything after closing.

When I clicked on Advanced Search it froze (twice) after showing a progress bar. I got this error when clicking on preferences:

jerome@linux-yxnq:/dev> ccsm
Backend : ini
Integration : true
Profile : default
Adding plugins
Loading icons…
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ccm/”, line 1312, in ShowPreferences
preferencesPage = PreferencesPage(self.Context)
File “/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ccm/”, line 1161, in init
self.PluginListPage = PluginListPage(context)

File “/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ccm/”, line 1049, in UpdateEnabledPluginsList
activePlugins = self.Context.Plugins’core’].Screen’active_plugins’].Value
KeyError: ‘core’

By default nothing is ticked but I think there are some effects already enabled on my system.

Does anyone knows what could be wrong? I would just like to be able to change my settings.

Never mind, it seems like we should not use CompizConfig Settings Manager in 11.3 KDE.

All these settings are accessible under KMenu > Configure Desktop > Desktop > Desktop Effects.

I will uninstall the CompizConfig Settings Manager…

This is a wrong conclusion. If you run compiz to generate the desktop effects, use the Compiz manager.
In your case: you don’t use compiz, the effects are generated by KWin, so configuration is through Systemsettings - Desktopeffects
