    ccsm still works in trusty

    Well.. at least we still have some artifacts of CCSM left to work with. Although 3D windows and Cube Gears don't work, some of the other stuff does. I wonder if this will be stablized or eventually obsoleted out during this cycle.

    Can't say that anything has really changed in compiz in 14.04, nor would I expect much to in the next 6 months.
    (maybe some limited bug fixing, hopefully without breaking something else. Actually a couple of the people now involved do seem capable of such an incredible feat.

    As far as the plugins you mentioned, they've been broken for some time, ( I think since GLES support in compiz which was a wrong turn into the current dead end) & likely will remain so unless some other interested party decides to fix.

    Haven't tried all of the stuff in CCSM yet, but Firepaint and Water Effect work well. Gears doesn't work here either but I put colors on top and bottom of the cube.
    I was in Precise yesterday and I do miss the burn effect and the beam me up effect. I guess those 2 will die with Precise. Those two are my favorites.

    Ok ignore this, I didn't realize I had had a 'check' mark in 'Skydome' but no image selected duh

    Is there any way of changing the background colour that shows behind the cube, mine is a bright white

    I did notice I think on someones post a darker background behind the cube

    Tic off cube reflection and deformation and see what happens. It's a lot smoother working.

    Works fine here (except for the reflection, I don't use it)

    also @Ringi... that's why I hate Gnome... cos it looks freaking awesome of other people's desktops and not on mine. Still, I have plenty of HD space for more partitions.

    Great desktop btw Ringi (mumble, fuzzle, blartfast)
