    [gnome] Re: Gnome 3 did not install Mutter

    I suspect it has to do with your chosen theme, which appears to be different than the one used in the Gnome 3 demos. It's called Adwaita and should be available in the Appearence Preferences.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unity Dash settings

    I have yet to find a way to remove the "Workspace Switcher" button. Its functionality is easily duplicated with some simple, built-in, pre-existing keyboard shortcuts.

  11. Re: Cannot enable Compiz desktop effects with Radeon x1550

    I don't have such a file. As it turns out, Xorg doesn't use those files anymore. That part of the system was shifted to auto-detection in 9.10 onwards. You can create one manually, but the point is...
