View Full Version : [kde] KDE apps opened in Gnome incompatible with Compiz

September 28th, 2010, 05:18 AM

I am using Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64 bits.

I installed a KDE application called lemonpos (a restaurant point of sale).

Since the window and buttons were looking different to those on Gnome, I decided to download systemsettings from KDE. I changed the interface of the KDE windows to look like my Gnome GTK+ windows and everything worked perfectly.

Next thing, I decided to activate the Normal Effects in the Appearance Preferences window of Gnome. That's when my KDE apps like lemon started behaving strange: everytime I clicked any part of the KDE window, the window title bar would dissapear/appear (toggle with the click). The only way to remove that bug is by disabling effects.

I'm guessing this is a problem of Compiz with KDE, so, how can I fix it? I would like to use Compiz effects and not having problem with the KDE windows.

Thanks in advance
