    Smile (Solved)How to enable compositing in Lubuntu.

    Hi,
    I have just installed Lubuntu and I am really suprised at the speed difference with my machine. I have installed Docky and I am now getting a message that I need to enable compositing. I have searched and can't find any instructions on how to do that in lubuntu...everything I have found is for either KDE or Gnome. Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Penny

    Install xcompmgr using synaptic
    Then
    Add xcompmgr -n
    To the startup

    Press alt+f2
    Type gksudo leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply. I followed your directions but I am still getting a message from docky that I need to enable compositing for docky to work correctly. Is there something else I should try?

    Thanks

    Did you put the "@" at the front of the command & did you log out & back in?

    Sorry, I have to ask a stupid question: Why put "@" at the front of the command?

    Hi,
    I did put the @ and I restarted my computer.

    This is what I put...
    @xcompmgr -n

    Thanks,
