The burn animation is part of a plugin called Animation Addon. Since Compiz 0.9.8, that plugin has been disabled in the Compiz build system to complete OpenGL ES support, meaning that when Compiz is built, it's built without that particular plugin. For that reason, you won't find it in any recent packages. If you build Compiz from source, you can edit the ...

Please see the following related answer: Default screen magnifier? The accessibility settings in 14.04 appear to have been changed to only include "enhanced zoom desktop", but you may find this a suitable alternative to a magnifier. After installing compizconfig-settings-manager per the linked answer, you will want to configure the enhanced desktop zoom ...

Very much a workaround but I have instead used compizconfig to map these keys to CLI commands for banshee rather than trying to use the media keys. Works 100% in banshee therefore but no use if you're using other media players.

If everything works fine in the guest session, you can use the following very simple system to get a performant system again: Go to System Settings User Accounts + and add a user with the same name as your current user but with a 2 attached to the end. In below procedure "User" and "User2" will be used. Now, Log in as User2 Open the file manager ...

I feel silly for the question now, but I figured out the problem. It was the web browser whose menu would come up, and I simply conflated it to all windows. To fix this problem, I went to the view->toolbars->menu bar and selected it. Now it doesn't give me grief.

If this is only happening with one user, log in as the user that's still working and then create a new user with the same name as the first user but with a 2 added to it. (for ease of use, the next section will use user and user2. Substitute this with your real user names) Now, Open the file manager Browse to the /home/user directory Copy (don't ...

My "workaround" seems to have been working for a few days now. Looks like I just had to extract /home/user/.config/dconf/user from backup, stop lightdm, copy /home/user/.config/dconf/user into place, and restart lightdm.

In 14.04 moving (in dconf) 'scale' and 'expo' AFTER 'unityshell' (so at the end of the list) causes the system to freeze completely after triggering scale (by hot corner or by key). Expo is seems to work.

Compiz blur plugin has been discontinued, and it never arrived for latest version of Compiz. If you really need the blur plug-in, you have to downgrade to Compiz 0.8.4 stable version. Please be aware of the facts: If you downgrade you will no longer be able to use Ubuntu's Unity Desktop, as it requires Compiz 0.9 to work. Therefore you will have to change ...

Usually this is compiz fault. You can wait like 1 minute and it'll be back. It not, you can restart it without loose any data. Press Ctrl + Alt + F1 to open tty1 and run this command to restart it: compiz --replace If even this way compiz don't want to restart, find the process, kill it and then run above command again.

Just to see what happened, I created some webapp- launchers. What you describe occurred to me as well, but in an unpredictable way; sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Opening a webapp window with a pre defined size To guarantee that a newly created window of a certain application has a certain size, turned out to be a bit more complicated than I ...

Adding shortcut keybindings from the command line in 12.04 To prevent the accepted answer to become too extensive, posting a separate solution for 12.04. Until (and including) 12.04, custom keybindings are not stored in the dconf database, but in ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/keybindings (in an xml file, in subfolders like custom0 etc). The script below creates ...

I think it takes parts from Gnome 3, so apparently it works to apply the :fix needed for Gnome 3 to show files on the desktop using Gnome Tweak Tool This also appears to work for showing the desktop icons (and restoring the background & fixing the dash not opening using the Super key) on Unity after having a go at installing Pantheon (and then using ...

I've you've come here (like me) for the title alone (Ctrl+Alt+Arrow key doesn't switch workspaces) then additionally to other answers here, try increasing the SIZE of your desktop: Compiz > General settings > "Desktop size" tab > if it's 1x1, increase it Credit to Uchiha Madara's comment in another question.

I used the Fading Windows section in Compwiz to adjust the fading speed. The options there are similar to gconf-editor which was suggested by @nicolas. However, for some reason, gconf-editor adjustment doesn't work for me.
