I just installed compiz config-settings-manager the other day on my 9.04 and so far all is working well except the Water Effects. I re-did the bindings again as the were set already, I believe ctrl-super (super = winkey right?). I hold them down and left click on the mouse and all it does is creat a box like as if I wasn't holding the keys down.

Fire works fine by holding the shift-super, and I even swapped keys with Water and still wouldn't work. Ctrl-alt will let me move the cube around with no problem.



also if you could tell me how to make it rain.

Thanks!

I have tried on 2 seperate computers, and it will not work on either. Is there a plugin I'm missing?

Did you check if the key bindings are not repeated?

I don't want to be patronising, but did you check the 'Enable Water Effect' box?

Not all graphics cards work with the water effect.

What is the output of these terminal commands..


lspci | grep VGA


glxinfo | grep GL_ARB_fragment

An oldie but goldie...

No output means your graphic card isn't up to the task of enabling the water effects.

Hard lines, you need a better card if you want the magic of the water ;-)
