Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:07:03 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&
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):
More than a month without reply.
More than 2 months without reply.
any progress ?
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.
Well, better description would help (possibly).
And xorg-* is not proper component either (sorry, for overlooking this fact for
What exactly needs fixed? Just add desktop effects to the comps file under KDE?
Shouldn't compiz-kde take care of this? I don't know if this is still an issue.
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.
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.
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
Reassigning to Compiz where the compiz-kde package should probably provide such
