gnome-wm needs OPT4=ccp for compiz-fusion and ccsm
Last modified: 2008-01-07 10:15:39 EST
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):
Install compiz-fusion and ccsm. Changes done in ccsm do not work.
Compiz-fusion should run with the correct settings saved in ccsm.
The settings have no effect.
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!
Kristian, I think this bug keeps coming up, but I never remember what the right
answer is. Do you?
Here's my reply the last time this came up:
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."
