    Angry New windows in session fallback

    Hi!

    I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit). I hate unity, so I use gnome-session-fallback. Everything works fine (OK, not as well as it worked in gnome2...) but if I open a new window, it always appears in the top-left corner corner and its menu bar is behind my top menu bar (with application menu, places, etc.).

    How can I fix it? It annoys me a lot. Please help!

    I have to run, in a terminal "metacity --replace" every time I log in using "Gnome Classic", aka Gnome shell fallback. It's a PITA, but it works until I find a permanent solution.

    Why not just use classic (no effects):

    Compiz seems to have some issues

    Thank you, but the "place windows" compiz plugin solved my problem
