Description kidboy14 2007-12-29 03:55:26 UTC
Description of problem: The gnome-wm script near the end of the file, inside the last case block (line# 129), the line should be OPT4=ccp, not OPT4=gconf. The compiz-fusion configuration app ccsm only lets you use CCP as the backend, so compiz-fusion needs to be launched with this option. If the change is not made, then settings saved in ccsm have no effect. After the change is made, it works. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-session-2.20.2-1 How reproducible: Install compiz-fusion and ccsm. Changes done in ccsm do not work. Actual results: Compiz-fusion should run with the correct settings saved in ccsm. Expected results: The settings have no effect. Additional info: Once the line is changed(to OPT4=ccp), everything works as it should, and the settings are loaded correctly.

Edit: in my report, 'Actual results' and 'Expected results' are in the wrong order. Sorry about that!

(ccing Kristian) Kristian, I think this bug keeps coming up, but I never remember what the right answer is. Do you?

okay, definitely your call. For reference the message is: "This has come up before, and while it would be nice to have a more capable configuration program for compiz the current libcompizconfig is not the right solution. Ideally we would have a configuration application per desktop environment and the GNOME configurator would just talk to gconf directly, similarly for the KDE configurator. If somebody wants to write a settings manager that works with several DEs, I think the burden is on the settings manager to talk to the different configuration systems it wants to operate under. Or this could be part of libcompizconfig, so that setting managers that want to be DE-agnostic can just link to this library and not worry about the underlying config mechanism in use. The current compiz setup is compatible with the above scheme, somebody just need to do the necessary libcompizconfig adjustments."
