Compiz does not work well with KDE desktop switcher
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
When compiz is run under KDE, desktop switcher applet does not seem to work well
with it. Not only it treats all compiz workspaces as a one huge, but also breaks
everything if workspace different than first is selected. Access to windows
opened in compiz is lost until re-login.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install compiz
2. Run it under KDE: Exec=compiz --use-cow --replace gconf & gtk-window-decorator &
3. Select workspace different than first
It impossible to go back to opened windows
Windows are recoverable
I have attached a screenshot showing the elongated workspace problem. KDE 3.5.4
behaved differently, IIRC it was impossible to lose access to windows.

Screenshot of wrong behaviour
Well, it seems this bug report is a bit wrong. Sorry. Desktop switcher rotates
the cube, but desktops are elongated and dragging windows do other cube sides
does not move them to another KDE workspaces.
I guess this is supposed to be solved by kicker-compiz. Closing.
