View Full Version : [ubuntu] Some compiz effects no longer work in 8.10

November 1st, 2008, 10:59 PM
I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 and some of my compiz effects are no longer working (although many still are). For example, when I try to check the box to turn on the cube atlantis effect it checks it, then automatically unchecks it a second later and won't work. Same thing happens for elements, cube snow globe, anaglyph, and others. What should I do?

I have the same problem, but have not found an answer yet.

Okay, after more searching I think I found the solution:


Read through that thread. Someone is talking about downgrading Compiz, and another fellow gives him instructions on how to upgrade to 7.9 instead of downgrading. I had some issues with this, which were solved here by the same fellow:


The compiz-wrap was not uninstalling properly when I was tyring to do a full uninstall and reinstall.

I hope that helps.
