Komodo Edit/IDE shows a tooltip for functions and such, but it doesn't show up when using compiz.

Only when you disable compiz does the tooltip show. That's a problem, of course.

Does anybody know a fix? Is saw there's a fix for tooltips in Firefox, which Komodo is based upon.

If it is based on firefox like you said enabling the "firefox menu fix" on compiz's workarounds (found in ccsm, in case you don't have it installed) might help - or following the same tutorial you found for firefox, if it fixed it in another way

I've already enabled it, but it does not work. I guess the code only applies to firefox windows, not all XUL based windows... – skerit May 24 '11 at 12:33
