Description Warren Togami 2008-08-04 16:09:55 EDT
1) User logs in to a compiz capable machine.
2) Enables compiz.
3) Log out.
4) Login with the same homedir on a machine NOT capable of compiz.
5) Big problems... often impossible to switch it back without logging in to a compiz capable machine, or blowing away the gconf key manually from a terminal.

http://packages.debian.org/sid/compiz
Debian apparently uses a modified version of compiz-manager (an ugly shell script) as a wrapper replacement for their /usr/bin/compiz.  This is a very ugly and problematc solution.

krh, drago01 and warren agree that gnome-wm should detect tfp and fallback to metacity if compiz cannot possibly work.  This requires no changes to our compiz package, and would be something acceptable for GNOME upstream.
