Description Chitlesh GOORAH 2006-10-30 09:44:41 EST
Description of problem:
Suppose with desktop-effects in KDE, Ive activated compiz effects.

BTW, desktop-effects isn't in kmenu !!!!!!!!

When I log out and in, I lose these effects.
A compiz-kde.desktop is missing in ~/.kde/Autostart:

Here is my compiz-kde.desktop:
$ kwrite $HOME/.kde/Autostart/compiz-kde&
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=compiz --replace gconf decoration transset wobbly fade minimize cube rotate
zoom scale move resize place switcher opaquefocus shadow menu &

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

More than 2 months without reply.
Comment 3 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-08-05 20:03:15 EDT
any progress ?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-08-14 10:20:51 EDT
targeting F8, but I don't much/any progress at least until either beryl/compiz
fusion progress or kde4.

but, "BTW, desktop-effects isn't in kmenu !!!!!!!!" issue could at least be
addressed sooner, rather than later.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-10-02 17:43:16 EDT
Well, better description would help (possibly).
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2007-10-04 18:40:44 EDT
And xorg-* is not proper component either (sorry, for overlooking this fact for
so long).
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-05 12:05:52 EDT
What exactly needs fixed? Just add desktop effects to the comps file under KDE?
Comment 8 Jesse Keating 2007-10-05 22:25:14 EDT
Shouldn't compiz-kde take care of this?  I don't know if this is still an issue.
Comment 9 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-10-06 04:31:49 EDT
Actually on the gnome-menu you have a menu entry called "Desktop effects", 
which allows one to activate or deactivate compiz effects.
However on KDE there isn't such menu entry on kmenu.

To activate or deactivate compiz effects on kde, one must use the konsole.

My RFE is to add a menu entry of "desktop effects" on KDE's kmenu so that the 
user doesn't need to use the command line.
Comment 10 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-10-06 04:34:58 EDT
when using compiz, the users logs out and logs in again, KDE loses the compiz 
effects. Thus the user needs to launch "desktop effects" again.

It should rather autostart when the user logs in KDE.
Comment 11 Jesse Keating 2007-10-06 10:45:59 EDT
The desktop-effects tool is GTK/Gnome centric and thus it won't work for storing
settings in KDE.  Do you have 'compiz-kde' installed?  The bug would be that
compiz-kde just doesn't come with a graphical chooser.  You don't want the gtk
desktop-effects tool, you want a KDE specific one which I could have sworn was
in compiz-kde.
Comment 12 Rahul Sundaram 2007-10-23 09:27:21 EDT
Reassigning to Compiz where the compiz-kde package should probably provide such
a option.

Addressed awhile back:

* Thu Oct 25 2007 Sebastian Vahl <fedora@deadbabylon.de> - 0.6.2-3
- Include kde-desktop-effects in kde subpackage
