View Full Version : [ubuntu] jaunty compiz 3d windows effect

August 24th, 2009, 04:43 PM
The 3d windows effect doesn't seem to work, when I switch it on it says it needs to enable Desktop cube, after that I am unable to switch between desktops.

When I add Rotate Cube then I can switch desktop showing the "normal" cube but no 3d windows although that is still selected.

Note for those using scim: this hijacks your keyboard shortcut for switching desktops. Go to scim setup and delete the shortcut for "show input method menu" (this didn't solve the 3d window effect not showing or the not being able to switch between desktops when rotating cube is not selected).

I am using nvidia GeForce 7025 and nvidia drivers are installed.

Thanks for reading this.

I just retyped this twice since firefox is crashing constantly in yaunty, think I am using the same ff on fedora 11 and never have any problem with this. Will try to reinstall it with apt and post another thread if that didn't work.

Errm, ok so the effect did work all the time. I just did not see it because the cube turns too fast. Thought it would show using control + alt + arrow down.

When control + alt + mouse dragging it works and looks fine.
