comment Unity launcher autohide leaves “ghost” behind?
I believe is a bug too. I asked a question here: answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/213598 Your input might be useful there.

comment Is it possible to use the 'unity-greeter' for LightDM on Xubuntu 11.10?
That solved the problem almost perfectly. The only issue left is that the unity-greeter seems to be coded to use the Ubuntu indicators in order to display the hour, battery state and the shutdown menu, but I don't want to install them because all the dependencies. By the way, is good to know the bug is reported already.

comment how to make wget retry download if speed goes below certain threshold?
Ok. Probably you could use --read-timeout=seconds instead. The "time" of this timeout refers to idle time: if, at any point in the download, no data is received for more than the specified number of seconds, reading fails and the download is restarted. This option does not directly affect the duration of the entire download. Of course, the remote server may choose to terminate the connection sooner than this option requires. The default read timeout is 900 seconds.

It was libgtk-3-dev, I didn't notice the typo, but I already changed it. Thank you for pointing that out.

Then just try compiz --replace ccp and see if it works.

If you want a theme that matches the default greybird theme just extract the folder egtk in deviantart.com/download/83104033/…; into the folder .themes on your home folder (if .themes doesn't exist, create it). And run this on a terminal: gconftool-2 -s -t string /apps/metacity/general/theme 'egtk', gconftool-2 -s -t string /apps/metacity/general/titlebar_font 'Droid Sans Bold 10' and gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/metacity/general/titlebar_uses_system_font false. In the first command is either egtk or elementary (I'm not sure).

I'm afraid you can't use both xfwm4 (because it's a compositor itself). I use the default window manager entry in the CCSM, which will allow you to use metacity themes.

comment How do I enable Alt + middle mouse button window resizing in Xubuntu?
Well it depends on whether you like or not to have more eye-candy on your desktop. I use it because I can't live without the Scale Plug-in (to switch between windows) and the Hot Corners Plug-in (to activate the Scale plug-in and to Show my desktop). Another function that I find useful is the Grid Plug-in to maximize windows or use half of the screen for a window (like you can do on Windows 7). The disadvantage is that you need a non-very-old graphics card and it uses more system resources. But like I said before if all that you want is to resize windows you can always use Alt+F8.
