    Animation (Compiz) is not working

    Animation (like close window burn) on gnome classic and unity works fine. I have enabled the burn window animation on gnome( not classic), but it is not taking effects. i have ubuntu 12.04 and gnome
    gnome-session 3.4.2.1

    Gnome (Shell) uses Mutter as the window manager, not Compiz.

    Afaik, Mutter doesn't provide any such fancy effects, and those it does provide aren't configurable at all. So either live the lack of such effects when using Gnome Shell, or research that yourself a bit more.

    "Compiz is a compositing window manager for the X Window System, using 3D graphics hardware to create fast compositing desktop effects for window management. Effects, such as a minimization animation or a cube workspace, are implemented as loadable plugins. Because it conforms to the ICCCM standard, Compiz can be used as a substitute for the default Mutter or Metacity, when using GNOME Panel, or KWin in KDE Plasma Workspaces."

    Above article says that Compize can be substitued for Mutter. I don't get this part.
