    How to enable the compiz-like effects on Ubuntu 12.04

    Hello everyone.

    I would like to know how can I enable the compiz-like effects on ubuntu 12.04. I assume I have a problem because I can't change the launcher's icons size either, I don't see the slider on the appearance section of system settings.

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP dv-5 laptop with this hardware:

    Microprocessor 2.40GHz Intel Core i5-450M Processor with Turbo
    Boost Technology
    Memory 4 GB DDR3 DIMM

    Video Graphics Intel HD Graphics with up to 1696MB total graphics

    Just for the record, when installing ubuntu, I had to use the nomodeset option at boot because if I didn't the desktop wouldn't show up and the screen stayed black.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kasim.

    Hi hansdown!

    Thank you for your support.

    I installed compizconfig-settings-manager as you said, but I can't find the compiz section in system settings nor in the upper-right corner of the desktop.

    What should I do now?

    If you're using unity, type

    ccsm
    It should show up.

    I opened the compiz configuration settings manager and I activated the wobbly windows but they don't wobble. What can I do?

    This tutorial will explain it better than I can

    Don't forget the

    unity --reset
    command.
