I think I messed up my upgrade from 4.1 fresh install to 4.3. I don’t know if I missed anything during the upgrade. I had to sift through alot of dependency problems like, De-installation of this, Don’t install that. That sort of thing.
I really loathe re-install because it takes sooooooooo long using my internet connection. Is there a faster way if need to re-install?
My main concern is with compiz. Really buggy; unusable. So I used KWIN, which of course is more stable as it is built in. But I keep noticing windows going dark sometimes (really annoying as I can’t see anything on the windows) and then the task bar bugs out. Everytime the window going dark problem happens (sometimes it remains transparent. I think it may have something to do with a “dim window for administrator prompt” which since I removed doesn’t seem to be coming back), the taskbar gets currupted and I can’t see the applications I have in it.
2.)Not sure of any faster ways to update, someone else might know
3.) Compiz buggy? Where did you install from? The one-click installer works perfectly fine for 4.3 if you follow my guide which is linked under the one-click.
4.)The only places I can think to check are Configure Desktop (Personal Settings) then Desktop and then Desktop Effects. Try checking the Translucency plugin and make sure that all are set to Opaque (except for moving windows if you like them to go transparent when you move them). Another one to check is Highlight, as it will cause a window to go opaque when you hover over a different task in the task manager. Also check Dim Inactive and Dim for Administrator Mode to make sure they’re off.
Ah, or just open up CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM) and find the plugin Window Decoration. Put a check next to it and then click into it. Next to “Command” erase what’s there and type emerald --replace
