    compiz cant find /usr/local/bin/compiz ***SOLVED***

    I just rebooted and compiz no longer works.
    A compiz --replace gives me this output:

    Code:
    compiz --replace
    Checking for Xgl: not present.

    /usr/bin/compiz: 415: /usr/local/bin/compiz: not found
    I checked /usr/bin/compiz and found this line:

    Code:
    COMPIZ_BIN_PATH="/usr/local/bin/"
    so i checked but there is no compiz in local/bin


    any Ideas ?

    Interesting--my compiz is in /usr/bin--I would reinstall & check.

    I think /usr/bin/compiz is only the start up script but i could be wrong.
    And i did reinstall compiz-core but the problem remains. My Video Setup is fine, xorg log has nothing but good things to say....

    I'd be checking your /etc/xdg/compiz/compiz-manager file. Make sure that it actually sets COMPIZ_BIN_PATH and such to the right value (/usr/bin)

    Yep,
    Code:
    COMPIZ_BIN_PATH="/usr/bin/"
    PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/compiz/"
    COMPIZ_NAME="compiz.real"

    Comming to think of it, why would it be in local/bin there is nothing but a script of mine.... If i change the path in /usr/bin/compiz to /usr/bin/ then compiz cycles its start up message...just looping away

    And you don't have something strange in ~/.config/compiz/compiz-manager ?

    Re: compiz cant find /usr/local/bin/compiz

    This is not fixed yet?

    If you open /usr/bin/compiz

    COMPIZ_BIN_PATH="/usr/local/bin/" # For window decorators and compiz
    PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/local/lib/compiz/"
    GLXINFO="/usr/bin/glxinfo"
    KWIN="/usr/bin/kwin"
    METACITY="/usr/bin/metacity"
    COMPIZ_NAME="compiz" # Final name for compiz (compiz.real)
    Try changing:
    /usr/local/bin/ to /usr/bin/
    /usr/local/lib/compiz/ to /usr/lib/compiz/
    COMPIZ_NAME="compiz" to COMPIZ_NAME="compiz.real"

    Try changing:
    /usr/local/bin/ to /usr/bin/
    /usr/local/lib/compiz/ to /usr/lib/compiz/
    COMPIZ_NAME="compiz" to COMPIZ_NAME="compiz.real"

    Thank you, that did it.
