Well i finally managed to install KDE with Compiz on Ubuntu 12.04. Now i have only a few problems left the biggest problem is that i can not input text into the KDE start menu.. it does popup (sometimes very buggy (mirrored etc)) but.. when i type letters, those never show up. nor the cursor inside the text field.. in chrome it works.. after restarting the browser though.. but in the system applications it doesnt.. not even in the terminal.. also using ALT-F2 to open that run thingy.. does not work either. Also, using the Application Switcher (Alt-Tab) of compiz does work.. BUT when i do that it creates the same problem.. it makes windows "unable to input" so.. when i run chrome.. i can input text into chrome and select etc.. but when i use ALt-Tab to switch to another program and then go back to chrome.. i can't input text anymore..
