I am making a custom session (using .xsession) and I want to use compiz. When I use the
compiz --replace command in the .xsession and also using "recovery console" option, it seems to not load any plugins. After starting compiz, I start ccsm and no plugins are loaded.
Back when I used arch there were a bunch of arguments for compiz and I would use 3 or so, and one of them told compiz to load settings from my config at launch. Here is the
compiz --help from Ubuntu 12.04:
Usage: compiz [OPTIONS] [PLUGINS ...] Options: --replace Replace any existing window managers --display DISPLAY Connect to X display DISPLAY (instead of $DISPLAY) --sm-disable Disable session management --sm-client-id ID Session management client ID --keep-desktop-hints Retain existing desktop hints --sync Make all X calls synchronous --debug Enable debug mode --version Show the program version --help Show this summary
Those are also the only options under
Here's the thing: when I run
compiz --replace under the unity session, plugins load alright and all that good stuff. When I run that under my session, compiz loads nothing.
Info that may help:
- I have tried compiz --replace gconf
- I always have gnome-settings-daemon running
- I am using Ubuntu 12.04 (beta release)
