I use gnome-fallback with compiz and docky. However, when I open an application that starts maximized, such as firefox, the window will lose focus if I click anywhere on the window decoration. Hovering over the window buttons does not make them change colors as it usually would. This problem arose after changing the window theme using gnome-tweak-tool. I remember having this problem before, and I fixed it by purging and reinstalling compiz. I tried this again, but to no avail. If I minimize the window using docky and then open the window again, the problem is gone. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

UPDATE:

I logged in to Gnome Fallback using metacity. I opened a terminal and ran compiz --replace, and the last two lines caught my eye:

compiz (decor) - Warn: No default decoration found, placement will not be correct
compiz (decor) - Warn: No default decoration found, placement will not be correct

With this additional information, does anybody know what's going on?

UPDATE:

I tried changing the theme using Ubuntu Tweak rather than the Gnome Tweak Tool. This did not resolve the problem.

UPDATE:

I ran compiz in debug mode. Here is the output:

josh@josh-laptop:~$     compiz --replace --debug --verbose

I solved the problem by installing a later version of Compiz from the .deb files available on this page. The page says that it's for Compiz 0.9.10. Running compiz --version outputs 0.9.11, but hey, problem solved.

This happens when you use the Ambiance theme.

Try the Mediterranean theme, watch the bug disappear magically.

It seems there is some issues in Compiz or the Ambiance theme (at least the themes that come from the Ubuntu Theme) that causes it.

This is a frustrating issue really.

I had to use the Mediterranean theme to get around it.

or else, you can download the latest Compiz Code which has a fix, compile it yourself/create a deb and install it. There are some instructions in some forums for compiling the same. Google for the same.

  • Actually, I'm not using Ambiance, I'm using the Elegant Gnome window theme with the Elementaryish gtk+ theme. However, it sounds like this might just be the solution to my problem. – Josh Sep 28 '13 at 2:43
  • I cannot seem to find the page you speak of. Are you able to provide a link? If so, please do. Thanks! – Josh Sep 28 '13 at 7:05

Its seems to be you better re-install compiz settings manager ,

I mean open your terminal and type as

sudo apt-get install --reinstall compizconfig-settings-manager

Then restart your system.

  • I have done this many times. However, I will try again. – Josh Sep 15 '13 at 17:50
  • Thanks for your input, but I'm afraid it didn't work. – Josh Sep 18 '13 at 0:51

Re-install will not work. For some people it may have worked if they have tinkered with versions in the apt-sources.

Follow steps below.

This involves downgrading a step back, But I have tested this and it does work.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/compiz/+bug/1158267/comments/40

The comment number 40 is what you would like to do.

this will install build tools and other stuff necessary to build re-compile and create package

Godd Luck

  • Downgrading is not the entire system , but the version of COmpiz. Above step downgrades only the version of Compiz. – Anand P Sep 28 '13 at 17:07
