Same here. The problem is that the Qt-subapplication (vbox menu) is always having the focus rather than the main vbox window. That causes Unity system bars to be on top. You can just close the Qt-subapplication and vbox will be the top window again. The easiest way to get the vbox menu back again when needed is hitting two times CTRL(right)+F to leave and ...

I had simmilar problems not long ago, this fixed the problem for me: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity This will force the reinstall without keeping the configuration files, that seem to be the cause of your problem.

For me this works, even though I don't use compiz and 14.04. After applying new values to .conkyrc did you restart conky in terminal like this killall conky, then conky? background yes update_interval 1 use_xft yes override_utf8_locale yes xftalpha 0.84 uppercase no own_window yes own_window_argb_visual yes ...

I have fixed this problem, by disabling the option "Workspaces on primary display only" in the Gnome Tweak Tool. Everything works again as expected.

I couldn't figure it out so for a fix I reinstalled Ubuntu from a live CD in root and boot... Since I have different partitions for root, boot, home and swap, none of my data was changed. I had to reinstall all the apps and tweaks I had previously, but since home was unaffected, all my settings, bookmarks, app state etc remained as it was.

First, you need to get CompizConfig Settings Manager, or ccsm for short. Then you need to install Compiz-Plugins. Once you have those installed just open up CCSM and the wobbly windows options should be available.

It simply means that the gconf settings have been migrated to the dconf database (See When to use gconf vs dconf?). You'll now find the active-plugins list in the dconf-editor: sudo apt-get install dconf-editor You can edit this list and put both 'expo' and 'scale' plugins at the end to make them work the way you want.

install Ubuntu 12.04.2, uncheck download upgrade during installation, and do not update after install. then plugin Annotation of compiz works in full screen mode. I am trying Ubuntu 14.04.1 now, and Annotation works in full screen mode of VLC (the marks is over the running video), but not work with image view (toggled by F11) and VirtualBox (vm in ...

Since you are running compiz, you need to enable the workspaces using the compiz session manager. See the answer on the link below: http://askubuntu.com/questions/519651/add-workspaces-with-gnome-classic-and-ubuntu-14-04/519718#519718

I had similar behaviour in 14.04: freezing screen and need to log-in after alt-tab. not always, but frequently enough to be annoying. Seems to be solved now: Installed compiz config Under 'desktop', swithed off the Ubuntu Unity Plugin, directly re-enabled this plugin Compiz now complained about a conflict ('Show desktop plug-in', if I rembember well) and ...

As hinted by @doug in the comments, I needed to log out and in for the change to apply. Removing the "Show Desktop" icon worked immediately, which is why I expected the shortcut to also be removed immediately. It was not. It is still very strange that the shortcut was active, but not visible in any of the settings tools I mentioned in the question. It ...

Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears This thread partly answers the question, but still not full. It really does help when you enaable ccsm, but you'll yet see empty screen even after reboot after the descrubed manipulations. However if you reexecute dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ setsid unity unity --reset-icons everything works fine.. ...

Delete $HOME/.local/share/applications/gnome-panel.desktop For some reason the old system copied its gnome-panel.desktop to your own $XDG_DATA_HOME (by default on .local/share). After the upgrade, /usr/share/applications/gnome-panel.desktop (belonging to gnome-panel package) was updated, but not the copy, which still has the old contents and is thus ...

If you are using workspaces (called viewports in Compiz), you can use devilspie2 to open applications maximalized in a different workspace. It uses lua as its scripting language so it is quite powerfull. It does not work that well with viewports as they are technically only a section of one big workspace, so some workarounds and external tools are needed. ...

I could not find any settings in the Compiz manager, nor in the Unity Tweak settings (which uses the same), but if you add the script below to your Startup Applications, it will check your screen resolution and your mouse position. If the mouse is within a marge from the corner (set in the head of the script) it will lock the screen. How to use Install ...

Try another version of ubuntu, maybe 13 beacuse the version you are using needs 64 bit architecture and i don't think p4 is 64 bit. So try to install another version, it might help you.

You can install many Compiz plugins with one command sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins-extra Then go to software center and install compiz config settings (cant remember the package name for apt) This allows you to config them, open it in dash and choose the "effects tab" You will see there are now many, many effects you can use, some of my favourites ...

To control how the window manager (compiz) controls resizing requires a bit of poking around in the various gsettings values. In particular there is the resize compiz plugin with a mode parameter which you can fiddle with. By default it is set to "0" which is "Normal" and equates to whole window resizing gsettings set ...

I was able to work around and fix this problem. I've seen the same problem as well on Ubuntu 14.04, and in its Zorin 9 OS variant. It seems to be caused by how Unity Tweak Tool handles configuring "Window spreading." (I suspect that it doesn't eliminate a conflict between scale and something in Desktop Wall plugin). Scale in compiz will do "Window ...

In Ubuntu 14.04 you can change the window spread highlight color by editing your theme unity.css (if it has one) For example using the default ambience theme. Browse to the directory /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/apps/, and edit unity.css as root. sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/apps/unity.css Find: -UnityDecoration-glow-color: rgb ...
