I would like to use Compiz in Xubuntu (under xfce obviously).
I have seen this tutorial: http://www.ghacks.net/2010/07/11/run-compiz-with-xfce4/
Firstly, this didn't work well for me, because when trying
compiz –replace ccp & in a terminal, it tells me there is no plugin such as cpp, and the window decorations are lost right away.
Is there a reliable way to run Compiz with XFCE, please? I miss my desktop cube.
Thanks for the answers so far. Just running
compiz --replace still causes the complete loss of window decorations.
Also, I tried fossfreedom's suggestion, and then I get the output below. I installed emerald initially because it was complaining about not finding it, but I think I had the segfault even without emerald.
(some other output) ... /usr/bin/emerald: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a decoration manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current decoration manager. Segmentation fault Setting Update "command"
Well, turns out that just trying to run emerald by itself ends with a segfault, and apparently this is a known bug. Used the solution here to resolve that problem: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/05/get-emerald-to-work-in-ubuntu-1104.html
Still, I wasn't actually hoping to use Emerald, but what the heck.
