    Yep .. it actually works. Iv'e been trying to get this to work since Oneric!! It seems more stable that previous releases. It was always crashing or just wouldn't work. Looks like they did an overhaul of sorts on it. Nice move for the "Linux for Human Beings" crowd. There are sure of lot of newbies who will be grateful for this.

    Edit:

    Oh yeah .. and another thing ... setting up ccsm in gnome-session fallback didn't bork Unity on the other Unity DE install. So that's a bonus too.

    Wow! .. It's been so long since Iv'e used Gnome. I never thought they would fix it this far into a new development release.

    Hmm? I didn't think the fallback session used Clutter directly.

    To be a bit more direct, gnome-fallback does not use clutter although some apps do. gnome-fallback uses either Metacity (the No Effects option in Ubuntu and GNOME's default) or Compiz. gnome-fallback basically works here on Saucy but there are a few regressions when used with GNOME 3.8.

    I'm not sure, but shouldn't you say "mutter" where you said "clutter"

    I remember getting criticized greatly for suggesting that mutter amounted to metacity + clutter.

    Hi guys,

    I've been living with Mutter as a fallback session but, now 3.8 or higher can't expose any desktop background images on running mutter as "stand-alone" window-manager...

    So I asked Ray, a main developer of mutter, then he told me "Today Mutter doesn't support any fallback sessions as a window-manager".
    If there was someone guys who runs mutter as a fallback window-manager like me, please go back to metacity...
    Yeah my bug report for it on Bugzilla was changed status to "resolved"... so sad!!

    1st attached shot shows mutter's desktop with 3.9.1, and 2nd one shows metacity's desktop as well.

    Best Regards,
    Tista
