I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome shell, because Unity is too slow. Is there a way I can enable extra visual effects which I had in Lucid Lynx? How can I replace my Windows managers? I prefer to use Gnome 3 or Gnome classic if Compiz works. Thanks!
From the Gnome 3 Myths page:
Gnome Shell relies on Mutter to do its fancy work, just as Unity (3D) relies on Compiz. You can't mix and match unfortunately.
This might get fixed in time but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Gnome Classic does work with Compiz though. If you're happier with a panel-based setup and want the wobblyness, you can turn compiz on by running
To turn on wobbly windows, I suggest you install
Just install Compiz from the Ubuntu Software Centre, and run
You can open a Run dialog by pressing Alt+F2.
