I only get messed up borders, or no borders. I tried uninstalling/re-installing compiz and emerald, and also removing all the settings (that I could find), but it still doesn’t seem to run. I get the default SUSE decorations, but on boot they are all grey and some parts are missing.
Video card = Nvidia 8400gs m (laptop), using the repo supplied Nvidia driver, all my openGL games work ok.
The “normal” borders sort of work, but I get white/grey ones on login, and sometimes they are corrupt and half missing! If I do a “killall compiz” and reload it, they come back to the default openSUSE green ones. Well, sometimes they do.
Yes emerald-themes is installed. Here’s a list of everything compiz related if that helps:
emerald --replace & actually worked the 4th time! It loaded the correct decorations :). The first time it gave me no borders, the second time it gave me the corrupt white/grey ones, third time no borders. Then I did a killall emerald, and the last time it worked perfectly.
I was having the same problem before I removed all the Compiz stuff and replaced it. The Emerald borders never load on boot or compiz first run. I have to kill it and reload it several times :(. I was hoping a re-install would fix it, but it didn’t.
I also tried the latest version of compiz from buildservice-X11:XGL, but still the same thing.
Thank you linuxarabic,
Your advice worked for me.
I’ve been using Ubuntu Gnome for two years and wanted to give SUSE 11.0 w/KDE 4 a try.
I loaded compiz-fusion from the links in the wiki, but was having the same problems as the first poster.
I ran into the same thing with my Emerald. I would run it in a term and when I closed the term windown I would loose my borders. I then did Emerald --replace &. This would kick me back to a prompt and at that time I could close the term window and everything was fine even after restart.
